LARS'2013 - 10th Latin American Robotic Symposium
October 21-27, 2013 - Arequipa, Perú


The LARS multiconference aims at promoting a comprehensive scientific
meeting in the area of Robotics, bringing together researchers,
undergraduate and graduate students of Computer Science, Electrical
Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering and related areas.

This multiconference, which is part of the Latin American Robotics Thrends
also covering Robotics Competitions (LARC) besides the scientific event,
will be through technical sessions, including oral presentation of full
papers, technical lectures of recognized importance in the area,
tutorials, and also will happen three workshops: of educational robotics
(WRE), of undergraduate works (WUWR) and of graduate works (WGWR). We are
looking forward to seeing you in LARS 2013.
