---- Description ----

RSS Pioneers is a workshop for senior Ph.D. students and postdocs, held in
conjunction with the main Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS) Conference.
The goal of RSS Pioneers is to bring together a cohort of the world’s top
early career researchers to foster creativity and collaborations surrounding
challenges in all areas of robotics, as well as to help young researchers
navigate their next career stages. The workshop will include a mix of
research and career talks from senior scholars in the field from both
academia and industry, research presentations from attendees and networking
activities. Attendance will only be allowed for accepted participants, and
there will be a poster session where Pioneers will get a chance to
externally showcase their research.

To facilitate attendance, the workshop will provide partial support for
travel and registration for RSS Pioneers participants and the main RSS
conference. This year, the RSS Pioneers will be held on July 11th 2020 in
Corvallis, Oregon, USA. More details about the workshop, including a set of
FAQ, are available at the workshop website.
