We are calling for contributions to our ICRA 2018 workshop. We would 
like to invite the attendees of this workshop to submit an extended 
abstract explaining their recent work in the areas of planning, control 
perception, and learning applied to legged locomotion.

This workshop will discuss the most recent achievements in legged 
locomotion and balancing from the recent findings of the fundamental 
principles of human locomotion skills in biomechanics, to the most novel 
locomotion and balancing algorithms applied to the recently developed 
high performance legged robot platforms.

We encourage 1-2 pages extended abstract of relevant work that has been 
previously published, or is to be presented at the main conference. The 
accepted abstracts will be posted on the workshop website and will not 
appear in the official IEEE proceedings. The reviewing is single blind 
and will be carried out by the workshop chairs. The accepted papers will 
have the opportunity to present their work/ideas in a poster session.

Please submit your abstract to the workshop official email address 
_*icra18ws at gmail.com*_ before *April 1, 2018*.
