About Karunya University

Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences, was founded with the noble vision to raise professionals and leaders of high academic calibre and unblemished character, nurtured with a strong motivation and commitment to serve humanity. The institution is the fulfillment of the vision of its founders Late Dr. D. G. S. Dhinakaran and the present Chancellor Dr. Paul Dhinakaran. Established in 1986 as an Engineering College, it was granted an autonomous status in 1999 and declared Deemed-to-be University by the University Grants Commission (UGC) in recognition of its academic excellence by the Ministry of Human Resources Development under section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956 vide notification no 9-3-2000-U3 dated 23.6.2004 of the Government of India. Accredited by NAAC, the institution offers a wide array of Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral Degree programmes in various branches of Engineering, Biotechnology, Food processing and Agricultural Sciences. From a humble beginning of 180 students, the institution has rapidly grown to 8491 students and 452 faculty representing 18 academic departments.

In the three decades of service to higher education, Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences has made significant progression in teaching learning, research and consultancy, innovation and transfer of technology, community service and value education. Translating the vision of the Founders into action, the institution is currently engaged in finding solutions to human problems in the four major areas such as Water, Food, Healthcare, and Energy through scientific and technological interventions.

About the Department of Robotics Engineering

Robotics and Automation is an interdisciplinary branch which amalgamates various fields of Engineering that include Mechanical, Electronics, Computer Science, Sensors and Instrumentation, Industrial Automation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning, Nanotechnology, Bio Engineering, Machine Vision and many more. This course enriches the takers with knowledge related to design, construction, operation, and applications of robots as well as the techniques of industrial automation. Started in 2018 at KITS, B. Tech - Robotics and Automation has rapidly gained momentum owing to the increasing demand for robotics and automation engineers. The department houses several state-of-the-art labs which aim to inculcate the urge for research and innovation. The curriculum at Karunya is thoughtfully curated for current industry requirement based on inputs from veterans in the relevant domains belonging to academia and industry. It equips the students in par with the industry standards and fosters an innovative attitude that leads them to become entrepreneurs. The department also has robust tie-ups with various industries and is currently collaborating with many more in order to provide a platform for the students to be exposed to the latest trends in the field of robotics and automation.

About the conference

The goal of Conference on applications in Robotics, Automation and Intelligent systems is to bring together the robotics community to present and discuss recent innovations across disciplines and foster collective advancement of the field. International Conference on applications in Robotics, Automation and Intelligent systems is the flagship conference in the field of robotics and an international event for researchers, companies and end-users. It aims to bring together researchers, scientists and practitioners of a wide range of fields like Computer Science, Electronics, Electrical, Automation, Robotics, 3D Printing, Smart Manufacturing, Mechatronics, and many more. The research related to all fields of robotics engineering and its applications likely to be covered in this conference. Experts from industries and academia deliver the keynote lecture at this conference.

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors from India are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original, unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the conference. Submissions must include title, abstract, author affiliation with the email address and keywords as per template which is available in the website. The paper should not contain page numbers or any special headers or footers. Regular papers should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers (Work-in-Progress) are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results. The paper length should be in 6-8 pages Literature reviews/survey papers will only be considered if they present a new perspective or benefit the field. To be published, such papers must go beyond a review of the literature to define the field in a new way or highlight exciting new technologies or areas of research. All submitted papers will be subjected to a “similarity test” by Turnitin Software. Papers achieving a minimal similarity index i.e., less than 15% will be examined, and those are deemed unacceptable will be rejected/withdrawn without a formal review.

Policy on Plagiarism

  • Authors are requested to kindly refrain from plagiarism in any form. Authors should submit their original and unpublished research work not under consideration for publication everywhere.
  • Manuscript found to be plagiarised during any stage of review shall be rejected
  • As per the copyright transfer agreement, authors are deemed to be individually or collectively responsible for the content of the manuscript published by them.
