[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement]*


/*16th Int. Symposium on Advances in Robot Kinematics - ARK 2018,*//*
*//*July 01-05, 2018*//*
*//*Bologna, Italy*/

/*Papers can now be submitted, the submission deadline for full papers
is January 14, 2018.*/

Advances in Robot Kinematics (ARK) is a series of international symposia
focusing on the theory and applications of robot kinematics. They are
being organized every two years since 1988, and run under the patronage
of the Int. Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine
Science. Ever since the first symposium, ARK has attracted the most
eminent authors and has continued to grow in terms of number of
participants and scientific impact. ARK provides a forum for researchers
working in the filed of robot kinematics and stimulates new directions
of research by forging links between robot kinematics and other areas.

Paper topics include, but are not limited to:
•    kinematics of robots
•    robot modelling and simulation
•    robot design
•    kinematics in robot control
•    theories and methods in kinematics
•    singularity analysis
•    kinematic problems in parallel robots, redundant robots, cable
robots, overconstrained linkages
•    kinematics in biological systems, humanoid robots and humanoid

Authors are invited to submit a full paper according to the instructions
provided in the webpage of the conference. Each submission will be
peered-reviewed, and accepted papers will be included in an edited book
published by Springer.

Important dates:
• Full-paper submission: January 14, 2018
• Acceptance notification: February 28, 2018
• Final paper submission: March 18, 2018
