Optimization or optimal control offers an interesting way to generate
motions automatically based on elementary principles described by cost
functions and constraints. The objective of this workshop is to gather
researchers from humanoid robotics and optimization, and also from
related research areas, in order to discuss latest algorithmic
developments in offline and online optimization for humanoid robotics
as well as current applications and future challenging application
areas still waiting for appropriate methods.
