Call for Workshop and Tutorials

We invite proposals for half-day or full-day workshops and tutorials. These workshops and tutorials will be held after the main conference, on Dec. 7 (Wednesday). They will take place at the main conference venue, Shangri-La Hotel, Qingdao, China. The primary criteria for selection are the anticipated level of interest, the potential impact, and the presenters’ technical background.

Workshops promote informal discussion of an active research area. Tutorials involve formal presentation of the principles (e.g., tools and methods) behind an established research area. We particularly welcome creative new formats for both workshops and tutorials 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.
