CableCon 2021

The first four conferences of this series successfully established a worldwide forum for research on cable-driven parallel robots. In total, close to 150 scientists from four continents gathered in Stuttgart, Duisburg, Quebec City and Krakow to present the state of the art and latest research results. The next conference aims at presenting new results, continuing the forum for the exchange of ideas, and establishing contacts amongst all international teams.

CableCon 2021 is planned online as a virtual event.
