Important dates
============
March 20th: Submission deadline
April 30th: Notification of acceptance
May 10th: Camera ready paper
May 23rd or 24th: Workshop (full-day)

Format:
========
Authors are required to submit a 2-6 pages extended abstract or short / full paper as PDF in the standard ICRA conference format. We encourage contributions of research papers describing early research on emerging topics and early results.

Submissions:
========
Submissions will be judged based on relevance to the workshop topics, technical quality, and novelty. Authors of accepted papers are expected to give a lightning talk (2-3 minutes) and to present a poster at the workshop. A number of full papers will be selected for longer oral presentation. The authors of the best full paper will be awarded a monetary price. Outstanding submissions will be invited for a Journal of Field Robotics special issue on the conference topic.

Overview & Topics
========
Robotic technologies have revolutionized industrial manufacturing because of their ability to locate tools in 3D space with superhuman accuracy. This ability has not yet transferred to mobile robots, however. As a result, mobile robots still struggle to perform manipulation tasks quickly and reliably outside of industrial environments. The need for such capabilities are prevalent in emerging applications such as building construction, mining, space and service robotics, where mobile robots need to modify their environment through physical interaction. The grand challenge in developing such systems lies in the fact that they require the seamless integration of advanced sensing, control, and hardware systems. 
Topics of interest include, but are not limited  to:
• Mapping and localization in challenging environments
• Whole-body motion planning and control
• Active and interactive perception for mobile manipulation
• Robust recovery behaviors
• Hardware and system design for challenging environments
• Tactile sensing for precise manipulation
• Collaborative manipulation
• Lifelong mapping
• High-accuracy localization
