2017 International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales (MARSS)



NOTICE: Abstract deadline extended to February 20

Dear Colleagues,

The second International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales (MARSS) is held from 17-21 July 2017 in Montréal, Canada General Chair: Sylvain Martel (CA), Program Chairs: Fumihito Arai (JP), Dave Cappelleri (US), and Antoine Ferreira (FR). This recently-established annual conference is managed by a high-level Steering Committee and technically supported by IEEE-RAS and IEEE-NTC. The Steering Committee has the ambition to develop MARSS to the flagship event for cross-disciplinary R&D communities to discuss current activities in all areas related to manipulation and automation (including measurement and characterization) at micro & nano scales, and in all kinds of small scale robots and their applications.

We cordially invite you to attend and contribute to the conference The conference offers 5-6 keynote talks, about 20 plenary talks and parallel sessions (oral presentations only). Full or short papers on MARSS-related topics are invited, see details at All presented full papers following IEEE format will be included into IEEE Xplore and indexed by Ei. Selected papers will be recommended to J. of Micro-Bio Robotics, J. of Medical Robotics Research, and other renowned Journals for publication of Special Issues. The conference also features a plenary Industrial Panel discussion and an on-site exhibition.

Please consider organizing a Special Session at MARSS2017. You may check for details. Every Special session organizer (at least 5 registered presentations required) will benefit from theappreciation allowance of 450 CAD.

Submission of full or short papers:                 February 1 February 20, 2017
