Dear colleagues,

For the first time ever for a top-tier robotics pub,  IEEE R&A Mag. will
start to accept R(eproducibles)-articles (i.e., papers that report
experiments aiming to be fully reproducible) beginning this September.
Actually, also (short)  articles reporting on the replication of R-Article
results, and author replies  are solicited and will be published after
peer-review. The result will be a two stage very high quality review
process. The first stage will be the ordinary rigorous review process of a
top-tier publishing venue. The second stage will be the replication of the
experiments by the community (what  is usually the core of the scientific

IROS event:

For those of you in Vancouver for IROS, there will be a _briefing meeting_
on Monday:

*Monday, 25 September *
*14:30-15:30 in Room 303*

Feel free to contact me, if you wish to know more. I will also be available
close to the TC Pebras poster just after the first plenary (and give a
brief talk on the matter at the Young Professional Lunch).

It seems a (big) step in the right direction, doesn’t it?
All the best
