***Call for posters **RSS 2013 Workshop: Aerial Mobile Manipulation

June 27th, Berlin Germany - Half day workshop

**Workshop Abstract

A natural extension of the rebirth of interest in manipulation represented by the mobile manipulation community, aerial mobile manipulation addresses new challenges and overcomes new constraints not familiar to UGVs. But aerial mobile manipulation is still manipulation at heart, and manipulation requires careful attention to dynamics and collaboration which are sometimes overlooked in the practical process of defying gravity and mastering the "snatch-and-go." This workshop proposes to bridge the theoretical and experimental by bringing together manipulation experts, UAV experts, real-time perception experts, and collaboration experts to present and discuss the current and future of aerial mobile manipulation.
