[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Workshops/Tutorials @ICRA2017 in Singapore

We invite proposals for half-day or full-day workshops and tutorials. These
workshops and tutorials will be held on the days before and after the main
conference: Monday, May 29, 2017 and Friday, June 2, 2017. They will take
place at the main conference venue, the Marina Bay Sand Convention Centre,
Singapore. The primary criteria for selection are anticipated level of
interest, potential impact, and presenters' technical qualifications.
Workshops promote informal discussion of an active research area. Tutorials
involve formal presentation of the principles (e.g., tools and methodology,
theoretical approach) behind an established research area. We particularly
welcome creative new formats for both workshops and tutorials that increase
the number of participants, encourage participants to stay for the full
duration of the event, enhance discussion among participants, increase the
level of interaction between established experts and early-career
researchers, and make useful connections to fields outside of robotics.
