Workshop/Tutorial

Workshop and tutorial should focus on key areas of active research and provide a forum for participants to share new ideas and discuss recent results. We encourage proposals for topics that have substantial community interest, with a creative and innovative workshop/tutorial program that will attract a broad audience. Workshops and tutorials focusing on academia-industry partnership and technology transfer of robotics research are welcome. The primary criteria for selection are anticipated level of interest, impact, novelty or creativity, and opportunities for networking among participants.

Workshop and tutorial proposals should include the following information;

  • Title
  • Format (indicate full of half day, workshop of tutorial)
  • Main organizer (One person only, complete address, phone, and email)
  • Co-organizers (complete address, and email)
  • Previous editions (if any)
  • Statement of objectives
  • Intended audience
  • List of speakers and topics
  • Plan for inclusion, diversity and equity

Upon approval, workshop and tutorial organizers will be asked to produce and maintain a dedicated workshop/tutorial webpage, which will be used to disseminate updated information about the workshop/tutorial and also to effectively solicit participants. The organizers will also be required to collect and integrate workshop/tutorial abstract (letter size, 1 page) before the workshop/tutorial for the production of the RO-MAN 2023 handout.

The workshops and tutorials are tentatively scheduled for August 28(Fri), 2023.

Inclusion @ RO-MAN 2023

In addition to general inclusion and diversity considerations for your workshop, consider the following needs of attendees of a virtual conference.
Attendees may be in different time zones, have caregiving/other responsibilities, have less reliable access to internet, or lack quiet private space to participate during the scheduled timing of the event.

You may consider offering:

  • asynchronous access to materials,
  • asynchronous forms of interaction discussions or Q&A (e.g., text-based),
  • recordings of the event for participants to access the material later,
  • an alternative to using a camera/microphone during breakout sessions if participants are unable to use it during the event,
  • session timing details provided well in advance for planning purposes, and
  • inclusive time zone schedule display.
