[robotics-worldwide] [meeting][news] CfP for WAFR 2018 Robot Guru Workshop and WAFR Student Travel Grants

Lewis Chiang
The 2018 WAFR Robot Guru Workshop is an undergraduate mentoring workshop
one day before the main Workshop on Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics
(WAFR) conference (12/9-12/11). The goal of the workshop is to motivate and
encourage undergraduates to attend graduate school through the exciting
research area of robotics and to foster a community of graduate student and
faculty mentors. We encourage graduate and undergraduate students
interested in attending the WAFR to apply to our workshop. Women are
especially encouraged to apply.

Undergraduate participants will be connected with graduate student mentors
and meet experts in the field, and will attend the workshop and WAFR 2018
virtually from respective home institutions. Selected undergraduate
students will be funded to attend in person. At the full-day workshop,
amazing keynote speakers will present along with experts introducing all
different subfields of robotics, busting robotics and AI myths, explaining
the career paths in robotics, and presenting tips to be successful in grad
school.

Awarded graduate participants will be funded to attend the Robot Guru
Workshop and the WAFR conference in Mérida, México.  Graduate student
fellows will mentor a small group of undergraduates attending the Robot
Guru workshop.
