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 http://marss-conference.org/download/MARSS2018_Call-for-Papers.pdf. The conference offers 5-6 keynote talks, about 16-18 plenary talks, and parallel sessions (oral presentations only). Full or short papers on MARSS-related topics are invited, see details at http://marss-conference.org/submission/paper-submission. All presented full papers following IEEE format will be included into IEEE Xplore and indexed by Ei. Selected full papers will be recommended to J. of Micro-Bio Robotics (Springer), and other renowned Journals for publication of Special Issues. The conference also features an on-site exhibition.

Please consider organizing a Special Session at MARSS2018. You may check http://marss-conference.org/submission/special-session-proposal for details. Every Special session organizer (at least 5 registered presentations required) will benefit from an appreciation allowance.

Submission of full or short papers:              February 1, 2018
