122 Jahrgänge | 2003 - 2019

Beschreibung

The Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics (STAR) publish new developments and advances in the fields of robotics research, rapidly and informally but with a high quality. The intent is to cover all the technical contents, applications, and multidisciplinary aspects of robotics, embedded in the fields of Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics, Control, and Life Sciences, as well as the methodologies behind them. Within the scope of the series are monographs, lecture notes, selected contributions from specialized conferences and workshops, as well as selected PhD theses.

Special offer: For all clients with a print standing order we offer free access to the electronic volumes of the Series published in the current year.

Indexed by SCOPUS, DBLP, EI Compendex, zbMATH, SCImago.
