Scope: Robotics is a broad multidisciplinary field where new ideas meet and confront each other and where new questions are asked, which open the door to completely new trends and development opportunities. Due to today’s exceptional technological possibilities and advances in artificial intelligence, robotics is taking enormous steps forward. ICAR has positioned itself on the edge between the seen and the unseen, between the known and the unknown. With original contributions, new ideas and views, ICAR pushes the boundaries of robotics and sets new research areas in robotics science and technology.

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality papers representing original work. Please submit papers via PaperPlaza:

Format Guidelines – LaTex Template – MS Word Template

Papers should be 6 pages in length (including references), with up to 2 extra pages (180 EUR charge per extra page). All papers must be in English and submitted in PDF format (up to 6 MB) via PaperPlaza. To ensure formatting compliance the templates should be used. It is anticipated, as peer-reviewed archival publications, all accepted papers will be hosted on IEEE Xplore.

A 1-minute video (up to 10 MB) can be added to supplement your paper. Videos are not mandatory. MPG, MPEG or MP4 video formats can be used.
