OVERVIEW

We invite all roboticists to attend the second annual Midwest Robotics
Workshop (MWRW) to be held at TTI-Chicago on May 18 & 19, 2017.

The Midwest Robotics Workshop is intended to bring together roboticists
from academia and industry in and around the Midwestern United States. It
is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share their work and
to network with one another, with the goal of creating a more cohesive and
vibrant robotics community in the Midwest. The workshop will feature
invited talks by leading researchers, and an exciting collection of oral
presentations and interactive poster sessions.


CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The interactive poster sessions and oral talks are integral to the
workshop. They provide participants the opportunity to become familiar with
the broad interests of the local robotics community. We encourage
researchers to submit a title and abstract summarizing recent or ongoing
work. Please note that contributions will not be archived. As such, we
welcome abstracts that describe research that was previously published or
is still in progress.


INVITED SPEAKERS

Jessy Grizzle, University of Michigan

John Leonard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
