All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format adhering to the guidelines below no later than 23:59:00 (US Pacific Time) on August 15, 2018 via EasyChair. EasyChair will guide you through the submission process.

At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the conference in order to submit the final version (check registration page). Accepted papers will be presented in oral in the single-track workshop. The possibility of showing “hands-on” demos of small-scale robotic devices is foreseen and actually encouraged.
