RSS 2013: Final Call for Workshops

Key Facts

TU Berlin, Germany

Important Dates:
December 14, 2012:   Initial Submission
February 8, 2013:    Final Submission
March 15, 2013:	     Acceptance Notification
June 27-28, 2013:    RSS Workshops

Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS 2013) will bring together researchers 
working on algorithmic or mathematical foundations of robotics, robotics 
applications, and analysis of robotic systems.

We are calling for workshops from the entire robotics spectrum. They may 
consist of as little as a half-day or may span both days. Conference 
attendees will have the option of workshop-only registration. 
Prospective workshop organizers should email a brief, single-paragraph 
description of the proposed topic, the intended workshop length (half 
day, full day, 2 days), and a list of organizers by December 14, 2012 to 
rss2013.ws at gmail.com.

A template for the final proposal, which has to be submitted by February 
8, 2013, will then be sent to you. This template will provide the 
expected constraints on workshops and tutorials (including starting and 
ending times, coffee-breaks, capacity of available rooms) and will 
request information for the full proposal. As will be indicated in the 
template, the full proposal submission should include a title, an 
abstract appropriate for promotion of the event on the RSS website, a 
description of the proposed content, a tentative schedule and list of 
speakers, a plan for soliciting participation, a URL for the workshop or 
tutorial, and expected requirements for space and equipment (e.g., 
number of poster boards), among others. We expect full proposals to be 
approximately 2-3 pages in length.

Full proposals for review will be due February 8, 2013. They will be 
reviewed on a rolling basis, so we encourage early submissions. All 
decisions will be made by March 15, 2013. We recommend that workshops 
and tutorials promote discussion among the participants. Priority will 
be given to proposals that effectively address this issue.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Berlin!

Marc Deisenroth, RSS 2013 Workshop Chair
