The Mathworks (the MATLAB guys) and I are organizing a full-day workshop to be held at ICRA 2014 in Hong Kong on 5 June.

The objectives of the workshop are to demonstrate,  and share knowledge about, how MATLAB/Simulink is being used for:

  *   Teaching   fundamental   principles   such   as   robot   manipulator   kinematics, dynamics and control; and mobile robot control, localization and planning.
  *   Developing sensor processing algorithms such as SLAM, object and place recognition etc.  for robotics applications
  *   Deploying algorithms to popular low-cost platforms such as Raspberry Pi, Lego etc.
  *   Connecting MATLAB to real robots

A preliminary program is available at https://wiki.qut.edu.au/pages/editpage.action?pageId=173981546


We are seeking proposals for short presentations (10-15 minutes long) that may include live demonstrations of code.

If you are interested in participating please send email to Yanliang.Zhang at mathworks.com<mailto:Yanliang.Zhang at mathworks.com> with the subject line: ICRA 2014 workshop that includes a short proposal in PDF format that is 0.5 to 1 pages long that includes:

  *   the title of your presentation
  *   your name and organization/university
  *   a short outline of your presentation, and whether you propose to do a demo at the workshop.

Closing date for proposals is 20 March 2014 and notification of acceptance will be by early April.
