RSS Workshop on Human-Robot Collaboration for Industrial Manufacturing 
July 12, 2014, Berkeley, CA, USA
Held in conjunction with Robotics, Science, and Systems (RSS) 2014

Recent improvements in advanced robotic technology are opening up the 
possibility of removing the cage around industrial robots and facilitate 
one-to-one collaboration between human workers and their robotic 
counterparts However, developing robotic systems that can serve as 
effective teammates remains a challenge in both academia and industry. 
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and industry 
practitioners to forge interdisciplinary collaborations that translate 
academic advancements into real systems.
This workshop will consist of invited talks from both Stefan Bartscher 
of BMW and Aude Billard of EPFL, submitted paper presentations, a poster 
session, and an open-topics panel with invited representatives from 
industry and academia. To learn more about how to participate, 

Topics of interest:
    -   Manufacturing safety
    -   Assembly and automation systems
    -   Skill acquisition and assistance
    -   Cooperative assembly in manufacturing
    -   Team formation
    -   Task planning
    -   Integrating collaborative robots
    -   Human-robot coordination
