Call for Papers

The 2nd WRC Symposium on Advanced Robotics and Automation (WRC SARA 2019) will be held as a special technical meeting during the World Robot Conference (WRC), Beijing, China, August 20 to August 25, 2019.  Organized by the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), and Beijing Municipal People’s Government, the first WRC was held in 2015, and has since then continued to grow into the world’s largest-scale and top-level conference for academics and industrialists in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence fields.  Each prior WRC attracted over 300 international speakers who are leading academics, industry experts, entrepreneurs from the world’s top universities, research institutes, and corporations. In the past few years, WRC has annually showcased more than160 international companies, with more than 1000 innovative projects and products related to Robotics. The conference has also attracted more than 200,000 attendees annually.

This year, WRC 2019 will host the 2nd forum for advanced research results related to Robotics and Automation and would like to call-for-paper submissions from experts world-wide to attend this forum:  WRC Symposium on Advanced Robotics and Automation (WRC SARA 2019).  We will collaborate with the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society in reviewing the submitted technical papers and arrange a technical program for this special symposium. All submitted papers for review should follow strict IEEE conference paper format. All accepted papers that are presented at the Symposium will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore and EI indexed.

The WRC conference series strives to integrate three key components for successful international conferences that will greatly benefit the attendees -- Forums, Exhibitions and Contests.  The WRC conferences seek to enrich the knowledge and experience of students, academics, industrialists, and entrepreneurs in the fields of Robotics, Automation, and Artificial Intelligence.   WRC will showcase technical innovations, cultivate creative talents, and allow international engagements for academics, entrepreneurs and industrialist -- pushing robotics technologies and industries to become a true driver of entrepreneurship and innovation across the global society.
