apologies for multiple postings

Dear all,

you are invited to participate in the ERF 2018 Workshop on Research
Reproducibility in Robotics (part of the  Competitions and Benchmarking
In recent years, significant progress has been made in the reproducibility
of results in robotics research and their objective evaluation and
In particular, an IEEE RAM special issue composed of replicable experiments
and guest edited by some of the proposers has been published in September
2015, and the 2015 IEEE Summer School dedicated to the same topics has been


Starting from September 2017 for the first time ever for a top-tier
publishing venue in Robotics, the IEEE R&A Magazine solicits and accepts
Reproducible Experiment Articles, see my article here:

RAM authors guidelines here (section 9.):

__Please notice  that R(eproducibile)-articles are solicited!!!___


Several successful benchmarking oriented competitions, such as  in the
European Robotics League have been organized. This workshop aims to update
on the recent developments and to discuss how to cope with the still open
issues in performing a reproducible robotics research.

The workshop will consist of a few longer (5-10 min) invited presentations
and a number of shorter presentations selected through an open call. We
will leave significant space for a structured discussion between industry
and academia representatives.

If you are interested to give a 5’ talk please send a 200-300 words abtract
before February 28th.

Participants will be involved in a (both online and by other media)
discussion before the workshop. The best ideas will be included in the
plenary discussion during the ws and afterwards.

We look forward your participation!
All the best
Fabio, Matteo, John and Angel
