Robotics Science and Systems (RSS) 2012
University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia,  July 9-13, 2012
The Organizing Committee for the 2012 Robotics: Science and Systems Conference (RSS 2012) requests proposals for workshops and tutorials to be held as part of the conference at the University of Sydney, NSW, Australia.

This year workshops and tutorials will be tightly integrated into the conference. They will take place during the morning sessions of  July 9-12. Regular paper talks and invited talks will take place during the afternoons of July 9-12, and morning of July 13.  Workshops and tutorials can span one or two mornings and offer an ideal opportunity for longer technical talks to be presented in a themed session. Note that afternoon (regular paper) talks will be shorter than 20 minutes and will be given in conjunction with an e-poster.

RSS brings together researchers working on algorithmic or mathematical foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and the analysis of robotic systems. The workshops and tutorials have consistently provided high-quality, topically-focused forums for researchers at the forefront of robotics. We wish this to continue.
Prospective workshop and tutorial organizers should email a brief, single-paragraph description of the proposed topic and a list of organizers by December 15, 2011.  A template for the final proposal will then be sent to you. Full proposals are due February 1, 2012.  Further instructions can be found at http://roboticsconference.org/pmwiki/index.php?n=Main.CallForWorkshops
Important Dates:
Submission deadline for the proposed topic:  December 15, 2011, 23:59:59 PST
Submission deadline for the full proposal:  February 1, 2012, 23:59:59 PST
Acceptance notifications:  March 15, 2012 
Workshops and tutorials take place:  July 9-12, 2012
We look forward to seeing you in Sydney!
