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

    August 2-4, 2017, Quebec City, Canada


    Dear visitor,


    We would like to thank all the CableCon2017 participants for their research results, thoughts, and all the pleasant conversations we shared during the event! We would like to extend special thanks to our two keynote speakers, Professors Sunil Agrawal and Meyer Nahon; to Romain Del Giudice, our photographer; and to André Gallant, who diligently carried out the bulk of the work behind the event preparation. The photographs taken by Romain are available here, for those who would like to be reminded of their stay in Quebec City, or, more pragmatically, to provide proof of attendance. Truly yours,


    Clément Gosselin

    Co-organisers, CableCon2017



    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.
