The RSS community is committed to increasing the participation of groups
traditionally underrepresented in robotics (including but not limited to:
women, LGBTQ+, underrepresented minorities, and people with disabilities),
especially people early in their studies and career. Such efforts are
crucial for increasing research capacity, creativity, and broadening the
impact of robotics research. To that end, Inclusion @ RSS will be an
integral part of RSS that will focus on programs that increase and sustain
a broader participation in the robotics research community. Component
programs will range from co-located events to sponsored activities during
the main conference.

The primary focus of the 2019 Inclusion at RSS will be to increase the number
of new conference participants. Comprehensive travel support will be
awarded to selected undergraduate and first and second year PhD students.
Priority will be given to students who have not previously attended RSS
and/or are new to the robotics research community.

We invite interested students to apply (and other researchers to encourage
their students to apply!) for travel grants via our website:
