*Call for papers*

     ICRA 2020 Workshop ''Shared Autonomy: Learning and Control''
     When: Thursday, Jun 4, 2020
     Where: Palais des congrès de Paris, Paris, France
     Website: https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://members.loria.fr/SIvaldi/icra-2020-workshop/__;!!LIr3w8kk_Xxm!_jkZpTk0WB9cSAF9dkCXhD9lb5fefbwtfsMeGtmwXGEN96kUrQMSPwYv3dAxiQ9Dk_-RVK_O$ 

*Workshop scope and motivation*

     Shared autonomy enables humans to effectively and comfortably 
realize complex tasks by physically or remotely interacting with robotic 
systems. Nowadays, research on shared autonomy systems is playing a 
relevant role in a wide spectrum of robotic applications ranging from 
surgical to industrial, from single-arm systems to robot swarms. 
Recently, the availability of datasets and the advancement of machine 
learning techniques have enabled enhanced flexibility of shared autonomy 
systems that are now capable of providing contextual or personalized 
assistance and seamless adaption of the autonomy level. However, this 
desirable trend raises new challenges for safety and stability 
certification of shared autonomy robotic systems, thus requiring new 
advanced control methods to implement the continuously evolving division 
of roles.
     This workshop brings together renowned scientists from the machine 
learning and control communities devoted to shared autonomy robotics 
research. The goal is to foster the discussion about the state-of-art in 
the research field from different perspectives in the pursuit of 
coordinated solutions for building the next generation of shared 
autonomy robotic systems.


     We would like to invite all the prospective participants to submit 
an extended abstract (up to 2 pages) to be presented at the workshop. 
The manuscripts should use the IEEE ICRA two-column format. Please 
submit a PDF copy of your manuscript through our EasyChair platform 
(link below) before April 24th. Papers will be selected based on their 
originality, relevance to the workshop topics, contributions, technical 
clarity, and presentation. Authors of the accepted papers will be 
invited to submit an extended paper to a special issue to be organized. 
Accepted papers require that at least one of the authors will attend the 
     This workshop is an excellent opportunity to present and discuss 
your ongoing work and get early feedback from the participants. All the 
accepted papers will have a relevant role in the workshop. In 
particular, the authors will be requested to perform a teaser and a 
poster presentation at the workshop. Hands-on demos are highly encouraged.


      Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
     - Shared autonomy systems
     - Human-robot interaction and collaboration
     - Modeling and learning human-robot interaction
     - Shared and supervisory control
     - Human-in-the-loop systems
     - Collaborative and assistive robotics
     - Telerobotics control and interfaces
     - Haptic feedback and guidance
     - Robot safety
     - Co-adaptation between human and robot
     - Intention recognition, skill level/gap evaluation and role allocation
     - Learning from demonstration
     - Applications in robotic teleoperation, mobile robotics, humanoid 
robotics, and medical robotics
