ICRA 2015 Workshop on Beyond Geometric Constraints: Planning for Solving
Complex Tasks, Reducing Uncertainty, and Generating Informative Paths &

May 30th (Saturday), 2015, 1:30-5pm, Seattle, Washington

Dear Roboticists,

We cordially invite you to join us at this ICRA workshop with a focus on
highlighting some of the latest advances in resolving challenging robotic
planning and closely related problems. Through the invited talks,
contributed work presentation, and discussion, we also hope to use the
workshop as a forum to identify important future directions and open
problems in this domain. The preliminary program is provided below. For
up-to-date information, please check the workshop page at
