We invite abstracts for short presentations across all applications and
topics of telerobotics ranging from managing legacy systems through to new
innovations. Abstracts can be submitted for selection in the lightning
interactive demo session or for a standard presentation talk. Email
abstracts to: *iros19legacydisruptors at rainhub.org.uk
<iros19legacydisruptors at rainhub.org.uk>*. Abstract format information can
be found here <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__rainhub.org.uk_Legacy-2DDisruptors-2DHMI-2DIROS19_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=C0XO7kou5zlz6u3f31pbt1N3XMvrZIn43agGCy36H4A&s=aM4usPj1geRWSSGowmz_4f-BiHPL-1GxYZH4w0rhi2M&e= >.

The workshop will bring together individuals from the broad field of
Robotics and Human-Robot Interaction research, to discuss the future of
Human-Machine Interfaces in telerobotics. The focus is to discuss the
legacy issues that occur in telerobotics and to draw on innovative
approaches that might be introduced. The workshop aims to encourage
discussion of new methods and technologies for disrupting existing legacy
systems in telerobotics. Examples of established systems from research and
industrial applications will be reviewed to identify the lessons learned,
and considered alongside areas that have high levels of innovation. The
workshop invites participation across industry, academia and throughout all
applications in telerobotics.

The two primary goals of the workshop are (i) to identify the technologies
and methods that could introduce improvements to existing operations, and
(ii) to capture the best practices in human-machine interaction that have
been identified through a long history of telerobotics operations.

The proposed speakers come from a rich variety of backgrounds, aiming to
drive a diverse and cross-collaborative discussion. Speakers bring
experience on the challenges and insights of updating legacy telerobotics
systems (be it surgical, nuclear, or space), and will present discipline
specific solutions brought to these challenges. A plenary discussion will
collate the experiences from the participants and focus on a roadmap and
general guidelines for best practices moving forward. We expect that the
work discussed in the submitted papers will present cutting-edge
applications in telerobotics across all fields, giving a great overview on
innovative solutions in applications of telerobotics.

Additional aims include:

· Identify lessons learned and features that can carry forward from
established tele-operation systems.

· Provide an insight and encourage innovation from new applications of
tele-operation (e.g., search and rescue).

· Produce a clear roadmap for the future of teleoperating system design and
guidelines of best practice to adopt
