The Ro-MAN2020 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Workshops & Tutorials to be held during the 29th IEEE International Conference on Robot and Human Interactive Communication in Naples, Italy from 31th August till 4th September 2020. Ro-MAN is the flagship conference of Robotics, where state-of-the-art innovative results, latest developments, as well as future perspectives relating to robot and human interactive communication are presented and discussed. The conference covers a wide range of topics related to Robot and Human Interactive Communication, including theories, methodologies, technologies, as well as empirical and experimental studies.
The goal of the Tutorials is to target established fields of research, in order to provide descriptions on its state of the art, by recognized researchers in 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.
