The 2012 IFAC Symposium on Robot Control (SYROCO 2012) was held in hotel Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik, Croatia, on September 5-7, 2012 as the tenth presentation in the IFAC series of triennial Symposiums on Robot Control started in 1985. More information and news can be found at the symposium web site.


SYROCO 2012 is sponsored and promoted by the IFAC Technical Committee on Robotics (TC 4.3) and cosponsored by the IFAC Technical Committees on Mechatronic Systems (TC 4.2) an Control Design (TC 2.1). Through these sponsorships, SYROCO 2012 has global visibility and impact.

Robot control technology is widely used for space, surgery, rehabilitation, micro machine, entertainment, underwater, civil engineering, professional and domestic services, security etc. It will continue to play an increasing role in the areas of robot-robot and human-robot cooperation in various dynamic scenarios. The primary topic for the SYROCO 2012 was "Robot Control in Dynamic Cooperative Scenarios", which is directly related to ACROSS SRD1 and SRD4.(See [Call for Papers] for more details).
