=======================================================================

The Women In Robotics workshop aims to: (1) raise visibility of women in
robotics, (2) strengthen community and provide an opportunity for
networking, and (3) foster mentorship of junior female researchers. The
workshop will be a full-day event with a keynote, invited talks, panel
discussions and poster sessions. The day will end with a dinner to provide
networking opportunities for junior female researchers.

Our workshop will feature two poster sessions in which junior female
researchers (grad students and post-docs) will present their research to
workshop attendees and the R:SS community. Please fill out the application
form to apply to present a poster. You will be asked to provide a research
abstract (no more than 500 words) and the name and contact information of a
referee. Once selected for presentation, participants will be asked to
submit a draft poster of their work. The organizing committee will provide
feedback on the posters approximately two weeks before the workshop.

With support from our sponsors, we will offer travel awards to a limited
number of selected poster presenters. Due to restrictions from our
sponsors, awards for students from non-U.S. institutions are very limited.
