Arequipa - Peru
Dear colleague,

We are pleased to inform you that LARS 2024 - 21st IEEE Latin American Robotics Symposium will be held in Arequipa, Peru on November 11-13, 2024, in conjunction with the 23rd IEEE Latin American Robotics Competition.

Conference Scope

The 21st IEEE Latin American Robotics Symposium (LARS 2024), the oldest and most prestigious robotics conference in Latin America, will be held in Arequipa - Peru, hosted by the Universidad Catolica San Pablo. LARS 2024 will offer you an unparalleled experience with excellent technical programs and social activities. Despite being a Latin American event, every year LARS/LARC receives researchers and teams from countries from North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania. It is a singular event with a focus on scientific and technological development.

Peru is a millenary country located in South America which offers a great cultural and gastronomic experience. Arequipa is located in the south of Peru and has become a hub for technological talent in Peru, which has its roots in the San Pablo Catholic University. San Pablo University has become a leading institution in research and technological development in Peru, specially on intelligent autonomous systems.

Arequipa combines the comfort of a metropolis, with the beauty of its green countryside, volcanoes, and cultural heritage; it offers an impressive gastronomy, majestic churches, mansions, and convents. Likewise, the Colca Canyon, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. Also, it is close to Machu Picchu and Nazca lines.
