Apologies for multiple postings

Dear All,

this is a reminder you are kindly invited to participate actively to the
ICRA 2017  Workshop on 'Reproducible Research in Robotics: Current Status
and Road Ahead'  which will be held in  Singapore, on May 29, 2017.

As you may know reproducibility issues are recently attracting a lot of
interest in many fields (including medicine, psychology, etc...) and
reproducibility of research results is a priority for IEEE at large.
Reproducibility of results is  the cornerstone of scientific methodology.

In Robotics research the replicability  and reproducibility of results and
their objective evaluation and comparison are still difficult to put into
practice.  Controlling for environmental considerations is hard, defining
comparable metrics and identifying goal similarity across various domains
is poorly understood, and techniques for .  Even determining the
information required to enable replication of results has been the subject
of extensive discussion. Even worse, there is still no solid theoretical
foundation for experimental replicability of experiments in robotics.  This
situation impairs both research progress and technology transfer.

However, significant progress has been made in these respects in recent
years and this workshop will provide a curated view of the state of the art.

You will find more details  and the workshop program here:
(it will be kept updated)

We look forward your active participation

All the best
Fabio, Angel and Signe
