Call for Papers

Download CFP (PDF)

MARSS, the annual International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales, will be held in-person on July 25-29, 2022, in Toronto, Canada. The conference is the flagship forum for cross-disciplinary R&D communities to discuss current activities related to manipulation and automation (including measurement and characterization) at micro and nano scales, and all kinds of small scale robots and their applications. The conference is technically supported by IEEE-NTC and IEEE-RAS.

NOTE: MARSS policy does not include having online or partially online (hybrid) conferences. We do hope that the pandemic situation will gradually improve in 2022, and the majority of the interested professionals will be able to attend and enjoy the in-person conference. In the worst case, if the international travel to Canada won’t significantly resume by the beginning of May 2022, MARSS Organization Committee will again postpone the conference to 2023 and announce the decision in the first week of May, at least a week before the full paper submission deadline. Under these conditions, a reasonable strategy for the authors would be to do the full paper submission short before the deadline on May 15.

Program: MARSS2022 offers 12-14 plenary talks and 30-35 technical sessions. The high-profile plenary talks (40 min) will be given by distinguished experts. All accepted papers will be presented in the technical sessions (20 min, oral presentation) and included into the conference proceedings on USB. Presented full papers will also be submitted to the IEEE Xplore® digital library.

Awards: All presented full papers will contest for various Best Paper Awards. The Awards include a certificate and a cash prize. Additionally, MARSS2022 will present Big-on-Small Award, along with a commemorative plaque and a cash prize. The aim of the Award is to recognize excellent performance on a MARSS-related topic and to promote upcoming talents with excellent research track and international visibility.
