We are pleased to announce our workshop on the "Challenges in Modeling and
Control of Centimeter-Scale Robots."
The workshop will take place during the 2016 Robotics: Science and Systems
conference in Ann Arbor, MI, USA, on *Saturday June 18*.

The workshop will focus on stochastic modeling and control for
centimeter-scale robots.  The goal of the workshop is to bring together
roboticists, control theorists, and applied mathematicians to report on
state-of-the-art approaches in stochastic modeling and control, identify
open problems, and devise new principles to meet the challenges faced when
working with small robots.  In turn, this may motivate the development of
new mathematical and computational tools to address these challenges,
possibly carrying over different areas of robotics.  The workshop will
address challenges that are common in small aerial, ground, and underwater
robotics, while discussions may touch on the rapidly-growing area of

We will feature keynote presentations from both established as well as
early-career researchers, a panel discussion, and solicit extended abstracts
for poster presentations from students and researchers working in the fields

- Stochastic modeling and control design;
- Resource-aware control;
- Motion planning, navigation, and control of centimeter-scale robots under
uncertainty; and
- Modeling and prediction of dynamic and uncertain environments.

We particularly encourage young scientists working in these fields to attend
and interact!

*Call for Contributions:*
We invite students and researchers to submit 1-2 pages IEEE-style extended
abstracts.  The selected contributions will be featured for poster
presentation between invited talks. Contributors are kindly asked to submit
their extended abstracts through the webpage of the workshop.
