We would like to invite you to participate in the


Full-Day Workshop on Robotic Monitoring at RSS 2014, Berkeley

* Date: Sunday July 13, 2014

* Time: 8:30 - 18:45

* Location: Room Wheeler 101, University of California Berkeley, 
Berkeley, CA, USA

* Workshop Schedule: http://cinaps.usc.edu/rss2014/schedule.php

* Motivation & Objectives:
       By this workshop, we want to stimulate the exchange of
       recent achievements in theory and application among
       researchers working in environmental monitoring,
       industrial inspection, persistent coverage and surveil-
       lance, and other fields related to robotic monitoring.
       We hope that this will lead the way toward advancing and
       integrating existing and new techniques (including state
       estimation, planning, coordination and decision making)
       for effective real-world robotic and cyber-physical
       systems in monitoring tasks on land, in water and air.
