WRC Symposium on Advanced Robotics and Automation 2021

The WRC Symposium on Advanced Robotics and Automation 2021 (WRC SARA 2021) is scheduled to be held in Beijing on September 11, 2021 during 2021 World Robot Conference (WRC). 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. Over the past few years, WRC has attracted over 300 speakers who are leading academics, industry experts, showcased more than 2000 innovative projects and products related to Robotics, and attracted more than one million attendees.

This year, the 3rd WRC Symposium on Advanced Robotics and Automation (WRC SARA 2021) will be held in a hybrid online/offline format by Chinese Institute of Electronics (CIE) and technically supported by IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (IEEE RAS). As an international academic meeting of the World Robot Conference since 2018, WRC SARA has received good feedbacks from academics in robotics and related fields from the globe.

At the time of the new-round technological revolution and industrial reform, WRC SARA 2021 begins to call for papers in related fields worldwide from today. The program committee will review submitted technical papers, select and award “Best Papers”. All the accepted and registered papers after presented at the symposium will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore and have the opportunity to be included into EI indexed.
