ICRA 2015 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation

Seattle, Washington (USA), 26-30 May 2015



The International Conference on Robotics and Automation invites proposals for half-day or full-day workshops and tutorials. These workshops and tutorials will be held both before and after the main conference, on May 26 (Tuesday) and May 30 (Saturday). They will take place at the main conference venue, the Washington State Convention Center, Seattle Washington, USA. The primary criteria for selection are the anticipated level of interest, the potential impact, and the presenters' technical background.

Workshops promote informal discussion of an active research area. Tutorials involve formal presentation of the principles (e.g., tools and methods) behind an established research area. We particularly welcome creative new formats for both workshops and tutorials that increase the number of participants, that encourage participants to stay for the full duration of the event, that enhance discussion among participants, that increase the level of interaction between established experts and early-career researchers, and that make useful connections to fields outside of robotics.

A proposal must be a pdf file submitted via PaperPlaza. Proposals must follow this template. In summary, the proposal must have these elements (described in more detail in http://www.ieee-ras.org/images/conferences/icra2015/wt-proposal-template.pdf):
• Type and duration (Specify workshop or tutorial, half-day or full-day)
• Title
• Organizers
• Abstract (200 word maximum)
• Content (500 word maximum)
• Plan to solicit participation (500 word maximum)
• Plan to encourage interaction among participants (500 word maximum)
• Equipment. Anything needed other than a projector and screen.
• Support of an IEEE RAS Technical Committee. Indicate if the event is in conjunction with a RAS TC.

Upon selection of their proposal, organizers will also be required to prepare a workshop or tutorial abstract (one page) in due time for the ICRA 2015 handout.
