ieee RAS iesRSJ

IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems
November 3-8, 2013, Tokyo Big Sight, Japan


Tutorials and Workshops

Tutorials should target established fields of research, in order to provide descriptions on its state of the art, by individuals who are recognized researchers of the field. Workshops should focus on areas of active research, in order to provide an informal forum for participants to exchange developing research results and ideas. We encourage state of the art programs with high level of interest, impact, creativity and innovation 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 technical background of presenters.

The following tutorials / workshops will be organized at the IEEE/RSJ IROS2013, on November 3rd and 7th at the main conference venue. Based on peer review, we have accepted totally 28 proposals.
