The 15 th International Conference on Control, Automation, Robotics and Vision (ICARCV 2018), will be held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore, November 18-21, 2018. The conference is organised by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, co-organized by Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, and Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT), CAS, China, and technically co-sponsored by IEEE Control Systems Society.

ICARCV has a history of more than 28 years. It focuses on both theory and applications mainly covering the topics of control, automation, robotics and computer vision. In addition to the technical sessions, there will be invited sessions, plenary speeches, keynote speeches, and plenary panel sessions.
Proceedings of past ICARCVs have been indexed by ISI Proceedings, EI Compendex and included in the IEEE Xplore.

Papers must be written in English and should describe original work in details. Please download the template below and submit the full papers online through PaperCept ( ). Proposals for invited sessions can be submitted online at the same web address. Upon acceptance, authors are required to register and present their papers at the conference. Papers which make outstanding contributions to the relevant topics will be considered for best paper awards. In accordance with IEEE requirements, only PDF files will be accepted.
For initial submissions, all regular and invited papers are limited to eight (8) pages. PaperCept will not permit longer papers to be uploaded. 

Accepted papers are limited to 6 pages in the conference proceedings at no extra charge; up to two extra pages are allowed for a charge of USD 100 each.
