The 1st Young Roboticists Workshop, will be held in Cancun, Mexico, as 
part of the IEEE-RAS International Conference of Humanoid Robots. This 
Workshop is organized and supported by Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus 
Guadalajara, Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara, Universidad Autónoma 
del Carmen and INTEL México.
This workshop, will be a forum for exchanging scientific and applied 
results, projects and experiences of young people that work in related 
areas to robotics, as well as sharing new knowledge, and increasing the 
co-operation between research groups, schools, universities and 
companies in robotics, computer vision, unnamed aerial vehicles and 
related areas, in Mexico and other countries. The main goal of this 
event is to present and discuss the most advanced and successful 
robotics projects of young roboticist undergraduate students.
Humanoids 2016, is a unique opportunity to these young students to 
present their work, to worldwide experts in robotics and receive direct 
feedback from others students, professors to improve their design, 
algorithms and control among others. Additionally, the students will 
have an extraordinary opportunity to discuss about the state of the art 
in robotics, software, OS, sensors, etc. Young practitioners of high 
schools, colleges and bachelor programs are invited to submit their 
projects, the registration of the teams is free of charge.
All the presented works in the 1st Young Roboticists Workshop, will be 
evaluated and the best three will be awarded in base of functionality,
