Third International Conference on Cable-Driven Parallel Robots (CableCon2017)

    August 2-4, 2017, Quebec City, Canada



    The first two conferences of this series, held respectively in 2012 and 2014 in Germany, successfully provided a discussion forum for researchers from around the world working on cable robots. The third conference aims to present new results, to favour the exchange of ideas, and to establish contacts amongst all the international teams.
