Half-day or full day workshops and tutorials will be proposed and should
target established fields of research in humanoid robots. Tutorials will
provide descriptions on its state of the art, by individuals who are
recognized researchers of the field. Workshops should focus on areas of
active research in order to provide an informal forum for participants to
exchange developing research results and ideas. 

/The submission of a workshop or tutorial contribution must be made through
PaperPlaza and will be accompanied with the following information/ :

*• Title
• Format (indicate full or half day, tutorial or workshop)
• Main organizer (1-3 persons, their affiliations, complete address and
corresponding contact)
• Statement of objectives
• Intended audience
• List of speakers*

*Topics * 
/The workshop/tutorial proposals are expected to comprise, but are not
limited to, the following topics /:

• Humanoid design: non-traditional and soft design
• Embodiment: materials, actuators, sensors and energy systems
• Wearable, prostheses, rehabilitation and assistive devices
• Software and hardware architectures
• Stability and balance control
• Locomotion and whole body motion planning and control
• High level cognitive planning and control
• Human-Humanoid interaction
• Learning and imitation strategies for humanoids
• Neuro-robotics and brain-humanoid interfaces
• Human body and behaviors modeling
• Humanoid grasping and manipulation
• Perception and sensing for humanoids
• Humanoids as companions
• Humanoids for physical and cognitive rehabilitation
• Industrial applications of humanoids
• Humanoids in hazardous environments
• Humanoids grand challenges
• Benchmarking and experimental methodology in humanoids
• Ethical and social issues in human-humanoid coexistence


The approval will be made by the workshop/tutorials Chairs. Upon approval
the organizers will be asked to produce and maintain a dedicated
tutorial/workshop webpage, which shall be used to disseminate updated
information on the tutorial/workshop and also to raise interest from
potential additional presenters and participants. The organizers will also
be required to collect and integrate tutorial/workshop abstract (1 page)
before the workshop.
