Paper submission
Special sessions


We invite proposals for half-day or full-day workshops. Workshops promote informal discussion of an active research area. We particularly welcome creative new formats that increase the number of participants, that encourage participants to stay for the full duration of the event, that enhance discussion among participants, that increase the level of interaction between established experts and early-career researchers, and that make useful connections to fields outside of robotics and between academia and industry.
