Aim of the Workshop
The volume of researches and service and industrial applications using
robot learning is continuously increasing. Machine learning is evolving
really fast and applications of novel algorithms are often related to
robotics. In a similar way, the capability of collecting information to
guide the learning process is growing due to the presence of newer and more
accurate sensors as well as a better integration between different devices.
Nevertheless, there are specific difficulties in making robots learn
autonomously new skills. The workshop will gather together different points
of view in order to foster the discussion about recent uses of Robot
Learning, and provide a view to future directions with an active
interaction of researchers and practitioners

Invited Speakers (Confirmed)
Dr. Serana Ivaldi - INRIA Nancy Grand-Est, France
Dr. Sylvain Calinon - Idiap Research Institute, Switzerland
Dr. Jean Baptiste Mouret - INRIA Nancy Grand-Est, France
More people will join soon

Call for Papers
Papers are solicited in all areas of robot learning. In particular, we are
looking for contributions applying robot learning to information coming
from novel sensors, supporting the development and testing of new learning
algorithms, or exploiting innovative features representation in the
learning process.

Submissions including experimental results involving actual applications
for real robots are particularly welcome. Papers with descriptions of work
in progress or preliminary results are also welcome to be submitted as
shorter papers to be presented as posters.

Topics include but are not limited to:
- Robot Learning by Demonstration
- Imitation Learning
- Programming by Demonstration
- Reinforcement Learning in Robotics
- Deep Learning and Model Control for Autonomous Robots
- State Estimation, Mapping, and Computer Vision
- Multimodal Perception and Sensor Fusion
- Learning-based Human Robot Interaction
- Interfaces for Learning Natural Language Instructions
- Learning Applications in Manipulation and Field Robotics
- Bioinspired Learning and Control

The content of all submissions has to be original and must not be submitted
for consideration in any other conference or journal. Papers must be
written in English. Papers will be reviewed by at least two reviewers, who
will give detailed comments to insure high quality of the contributions.
Papers must be prepared according Springer authors guidelines.
The page limit is 12 pages for full paper submissions. We will also accept
shorter papers (up to 4 pages) to be presented as posters. All the accepted
papers and posters will be included in a DVD with an ISBN number, which
will be distributed to the workshop attendees. Papers have to be submitted
electronically in PDF format through the EasyChair Portal.
