Hello Roboticists,

I am co-organizing a Discipline-Specific Workshop sponsored by CRA-W and the Coalition to Diversify Computing affiliated with the ICRA 2015 Conference this year. We have student travel scholarships available for U.S. students.

It is the goal of this workshop to introduce students to the exciting research area of robotics and to provide students currently doing research in robotics with valuable career-building information. Robotics is a very unique field that requires applied engineering, basic science, and strong creativity. The integration of these three areas often proves challenging. Despite this challenge, robots are becoming ubiquitous tools for many daily tasks including manufacturing, package delivery, and in home assistance. In order to prepare the next generation of robotics researchers, this workshop will address several discipline-specific challenges of robotics and strategies to overcome these challenges including the integration of hardware and software and multi-disciplinary integration required.

Undergraduate and graduate students are the primary audience of this workshop. Scholarships will be available to fund travel and attendance. Underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

The Application Deadline is:

April 11, 2015 at 11:59 pm PDT

The scholarship announcements are expected to be made by April 18th, 2015.

The application is available at:


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at cbethel at cse.msstate.edu. I hope you will consider having your students apply.
