ARK is a series of international symposia organized every two years. The first symposium was organised in 1988. The objective is to provide a forum for researchers working in robot kinematics and to stimulate new directions of research by forging links between robot kinematics and other areas. The topics are as follows:
  • Analysis of robot kinematics
  • Modeling and simulation of robot kinematics
  • Design of robot kinematics
  • Kinematics in robot control
  • Theories and methods in kinematics
  • Singularity and isotropy
  • Kinematics in biological systems
  • Kinematics of parallel robots, redundant robots, multi-arm robots
