SBR/LARS 2016 – Robotics Symposium

About LARS/SBR 2016

SBR’2016 – 4th Brazilian Symposium on Robotics and LARS’2016 – 13rd Latin American Robotics Symposium.

The LARS/SBR Robotics Symposium is part of the ROBOTICA 2016, and aims at promoting a comprehensive scientific meeting in the area of Intelligent Robotics, bringing together researchers, undergraduate and graduate students of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering and related areas.

The event will be held through technical sessions of oral presentation of full papers and technical lectures of recognized importance in the area. We are looking forward to seeing you in LARS/SBR 2016.

The LARS and SBR are the major scientific/academic meetings of the entire event that will have others relevant events on robotics. The event will also comprise CTDR/WTDR – Workshop on MSc Dissertation and PhD Thesis in Robotics, the WRE – Workshop of Robotics in Education, LARC – 15th. Latin American Robotics Competition; CBR – 14th Competição Brasileira de Robótica; OBR – 10th. Olimpíada Brasileira de Robótica; MNR – 6th. Mostra Nacional de Robótica.

Registration for SBR/LARS 2016 and Workshops (WRE/WTDR) can be performed direct in ECOS system by the button below:


Credit Card and “Nota de Empenho” payments are available.

All registration categories include access to all the events in Robotica 2016, welcome reception and conference dinner.

Conference dinner accompanying adhesion can be purchased on the conference site.

For each accepted paper in LARS/SBR 2016 at least one author should register at full registration by August 26th, 2016
Without registering, your paper will not appear in the proceedings.

Each full registration will be considered for up to two (2) papers in LARS/SBR 2016. If the author has more than 2 paper to be published, any additional paper will require an extra fee of R$ 250,00. For example, a registration of an author for 4 papers in LARS/SBR 2016 would be 1 (one) full registration + 2 (two) extra papers fees.

For WRE, WTDR and CTDR co-allocated events, at least one author must be registered in the event (Full or student registration). There is no limit of papers.

The deadline for the registration refund request is at most two weeks prior to the event and the amount to be reimbursed will be 80%.



Each accepted paper will have 10 minutes for oral presentation + 5 minutes of questions (total of 15 minutes per paper)

  1. Aguardando a abertura do processo de submissão de papers. Alguma estimativa de data?
    Waiting for the opening of the papers submission process. Any date estimate?

  2. Olá, gostaria de obter o template (modelo) para este evento no Latex.

    Hello, I would like to get the template for this event in Latex.

  3. Olá, gostaria de saber onde está o template em latex, aqui no site só consta o template em word.

  4. Olá,

    Gostaria de saber se o prazo de submissão será adiado, pois precisaria de tempo adicional para conseguir submeter um trabalho.



  5. Gostaria de saber se há possibilidade de adiar o deadline por duas semanas, para que eu possa realizar os testes para o artigo.

  6. Olá, estou escrevendo um artigo sobre localização de robôs humanóides mas acho que não vou conseguir terminar até a deadline. Vocês pretendem estender o prazo de submissão? Grato,
    Luis Guilherme

    Hello, i am writing a paper about localization for humanoid robots, however I might not finish until the deadline. Are you going to extended the final date for submission? Thanks,
    Luis Guilherme

  7. O nosso artigo esta com 8 paginas, e não da tempo para resumir até o dia 27/05/2016. Eu posso enviar com mais de 6 paginas e se for aceito eu faço o resumo?

  8. Olá Marcos, segue as datas:
    LARS e SBR – submissões pelo JEMS
