Theme of the workshop
**************************************************************************************************
This half-day workshop aims to introduce and discuss the current works
related to social robotic teleoperation, focusing on a) methods to
enhance/train teleoperation of robots, and b) its new applications.

Recently there have been growing needs for teleoperation, especially
after the Fukushima disaster including the nuclear energy plant
explosion. Since then, many studies as well as products have emerged in
the field of teleoperated robots. However, the focus have been placed on
product development and mostly no efforts have been given on the
training and enhancement of teleoperation. Besides, there are emerging
usage of teleoperated robotics, especially in the social interaction
field such as elderly care.

In this workshop, we will gather novel works on this emerging field and
discuss future research directions.

**************************************************************************************************
Workshop topics of interest (but are not limited to)
**************************************************************************************************
- Training for effective teleoperation
- Improvements in teleoperation system
