15th Brazilian Symposium on Robotics - SBR 2023

20th IEEE Latin American Robotics Symposium - LARS 2023

Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. October 09-11th 2023


The IEEE LARS and SBR (Latin American Robotics Symposium/Brazilian Robotics Symposium) aim 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, Computer Engineering, and related fields.

The LARS/SBR and its associated scientific events are the primary scientific/academic meetings of a larger event that brings relevant developments in robotics, named ROBÓTICA 2023. This also comprises the LARC/CBR (Latin American Robotics Competition / Brazilian Robotics Competition), OBR (Brazilian Robotics Olympiad), MNR (National Robotics Fair), besides the LARS/SBR, WRE (Workshop on Robotics in Education) and WTDR / CTDR (Workshop on MSc Dissertation and PhD Thesis in Robotics and Best MSc Dissertation and PhD Thesis Contest in Robotics ).

The event will include technical sessions of an oral presentation of full papers and technical lectures of recognized importance in the area. LARS/SBR will take place in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil from October 9th to 11st, 2023.

We are looking forward to seeing you in LARS/SBR 2023.


Papers must be written in English and must not exceed six (6) pages in standard IEEE format, including title, abstract, tables, figures, and references. Papers should present new solid results in theoretical, empirical, and applied research related to the conference topics. This year the reviewing process will be DOUBLE BLINDED, so authors must hide their names, contact information, acknowledgments, and any other reference in the text to where their research takes place.

The best selected papers will be invited for submission of an extended version in the Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems - JINT

Registration fee is not available yet.

LARS/SBR/WRE - Authors registration: Each accepted paper must have at least 1 (one) author registered in the Professional category. If the paper is not covered by a Professional registration, the student must pay his registration and a publication fee. Publication fee is the difference between what the student paid for his category and the "Professional (SBC or IEEE Member)" category, for the same deadline. Additionally, each Professional registration (or equivalently student + publication fee) can cover up to 2 (two) papers.

Publication Fee: R$ XXX for each paper

WTDR/CTDR - Authors registration: Authors of thesis/dissertations on the WTDR/CTDR only need the corresponding student registration to be eligible to present their work, no professional registration/publication fee is required.

Conference Dinner:The conference dinner is included in the Professional Registration, however other categories or extra dinner needs to pay the amount of R$XXX per person. This is subject to availability of tickets.

Payment: The payment of the registrations may be made through bank slip (boleto), credit card, account debit, commitment and billing through the SBC registration system. Payments through bank slip can be made until XXX. Payments through credit card, commitment and billing will be accepted until XXX.

Commitment and Invoice Registration:The participant must access the ECOS system and make the registration by selecting the payment method "commitment note" or "invoicing" and clicking pay, the system will provide the necessary information that must be included in the invoice, commitment or billing request.

Note: Registrations covered by Institutional Associations affiliated to SBC are not allowed for LARS-SBR-WRE authors, since this kind of registration is not transferred to the conference budget.

Q&A: If you have any questions about payment or registration, fell free to contact the conference chairs.

Cancellation policy: Up to XXX, a refund of 50% of the amount paid for the registration can be made. After this date there will be no refund of any amount paid. The policy applies to both unsubscribing and cancellation of any additional activity. To request cancellation, send an email to faturamento@sbc.org.br
