Welcome to ROBIO 2018!


2018 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics (IEEE ROBIO 2018) will be held December 12~15, 2018, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. As the 15th in the ROBIO conference series, IEEE ROBIO 2018 will be another tremendous event for fruitful intellectual and social interactions among colleagues and friends in robotics, biomimetics and related fields. The theme of ROBIO 2018 is Fusion of Robotics, Biomimetics and Al, reflecting ever growing interests in robotics and biomimetics, and rapid development in artificial intelligence. We solicit full-length, high-quality, and original papers on but not limited in the following topics:

  • New theory and technology in robotics and biomimetics
  • Bio-inspired robots, e.g., climbing, creeping, and walking robots
  • Soft robotics and liquid-metal robotics
  • Artificial intelligence in robotics
  • Autonomous mobile robots and manipulators
  • Space robots, aerial robots, and underwater robots
  • MEMS, NEMS, nano-technology, and micro/nano systems
  • Human-robot interaction
  • Smart sensors and actuators
  • Robotic vision and image processing
  • Multi-sensor data fusion and sensor networks
  • Multi-robot systems, swarm robots, and collaborative robots
  • Medical robotics, biomedical and rehabilitation engineering
  • Robotics in intelligent manufacturing
  • Applications of robotics and biomimetics

Besides promising to be a great platform for scientific and technical communication, the conference will also bring opportunities for social programs in Kuala Lumpur (KL). As the capital city of Malaysia, KL boasts gleaming skyscrapers, colonial architecture, charming locals, delicious foods of various type, wonderful fruits, and a myriad of natural attractions. It is widely recognized for numerous landmarks, including Petronas Twin Towers, Rotary KL Tower , Skybar, and Batu Caves, which is over 400 million years old.
