Workshop Proposals

Participants are invited to hold workshops on topics relevant to social robotics. We particularly welcome creative, innovative, and interactive workshop formats that focus on areas of active research to generate significant discussion and exchange of ideas between participants, as well as interactions between established experts and early-career researchers. We encourage state of the art programs with high level of interest, impact, creativity and innovation that will attract a broad and active audience. Also, workshops focusing on academia-industry partnership and technology transfer of robotics research are welcome, with the aim of making connections to fields outside of robotics and/or connect academia to industry. 

The primary criteria for selection are anticipated level of interest, impact, novelty or creativity, and technical background of presenters.
