Robotica 2012: 12th International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions
Guimarães, Portugal

The 12th International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions (www.robotica2012.org/EC) is an international scientific meeting in the field of autonomous robotics and related areas, which will take place in conjunction with the 12th Portuguese Robotics Open, a RoboCup Local Event.

As in previous years, we expect the conference to get the Technical co-sponsorship of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
