SYROCO 2021 : 13th IFAC Symposium on Robot Control

Matsumoto, Japan
Event Date: Aug 30, 2021 - Sep 02, 2021
Submission Deadline: Feb 09, 2021
Notification of Acceptance: May 01, 2021
Camera Ready Version Due : May 21, 2021




The symposium will be held in Matsumoto, Japan nested in the Japanese Alps, a city with a traditional history and surrounded by beautiful nature.

Mastumoto is easily accessible by train from Tokyo. Tokyo has two international airports Haneda and Narita with direct flights to all major cities in the world.

The primary topics for the SYROCO 2021 will be “Robots control with human in the loop”. Robots are widely used for space, surgery, rehabilitation, micro machine, entertainment, underwater, civil engineering, professional and domestic services, security etc… Without control technology robots wouldn’t be able to do what they are now able to do. While continuing to play an important role in unmanned areas, they will
play an increasing role in areas where human and robot are in the same space and where the robot may provide support to the human in various scenarios cobots, exoskeletons, or educational robots to name a few examples. This close relation between robots and humans means that new problems of control are emerging and have to be solved.
This Symposium will provide an opportunity to present and discuss research and development work in the hot area of the field. Contributions on basic research as well as on relevant applications are expected.
