Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal
We are pleased to inform you that ICARSC 2020 – IEEE International Conference
on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions will be held in Ponta Delgada,
Azores, Portugal, on April 15-17, 2020.
The conference is co-located with ROBOTICA 2020 – 20th Portuguese Robotics Open,
a RoboCup-sponsored local event, and it is promoted by the University of Aveiro,
University of Azores, Polythecnic of Porto, University of Porto and the
Portuguese Robotics Society.
== Conference Scope ==
ICARSC gathers participants from academia and industry working in the field
of autonomous robotics and related areas. ICARSC is a well established IEEE
conference that has been growing continuously for over a decade and is
nowadays a truly international forum attracting worldwide quality

== Paper Submission ==
Authors are invited to submit original research contributions in English.
Six pages in the standard IEEE format:
are allowed for each paper, including tables and figures.
Full papers should be submitted electronically, in PDF format, using the
Reviewing for ICARSC 2020 will be *double blind* so authors must
remove their names from the submitted papers and should take
reasonable care not to indirectly disclose their identity.
Accepted papers will be scheduled for presentation, which requires
that at least one of the authors must register at the Conference and
present the paper. Failure to meet this requirement will imply
removing the paper from the online version of the proceedings.
