Workshop:                       March 15, 2018


ROS is developing into the standard middleware for robotics
applications. Researchers and practitioners world-wide contribute their
results and publish software packages for ROS. This way, a large number
of state-of-the-art robotics algorithm become available to be used
freely. With the ROS-Industrial project, the ROS success story should be
extended to industrial robots as well. To foster ROS-Industrial is also
the mission of the ROSIN project (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__rosin-2Dproject.eu&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=yUdxrKKbAW6GCG4tO_8j3e6MXo3tZ2fJqe_0NFGEsCg&s=HGVc6uTpjqADCJ5r4RTPF0rWquIa37nt8yNjQGL6yOQ&e=). In order to
build a broad ROS-I community, one of the goals of ROSIN is to teach
ROS-I to university students and professionals.

Many institutions offer education activities about the Robot Operating
Systems. There are a number of Summer Schools, there are professional
trainings for ROS-Industrial and even online courses are available for
learning ROS.

But how is ROS and, for that matter, how are some of the
fundamentals of robotics being taught to the students?

With this workshop we aim at bringing together educators involved in
teaching robotics courses and/or ROS to discuss curricular topics, best
practices and exchange about common problems with “Teaching robotics
with ROS”.


We invite submissions of research papers from all researchers and
practitioners who are involved with teaching robotics and/or teaching ROS.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) experiences with
ROS-based teaching activities, curriculum development, intended and/or
achieved learning outcomes, online teaching/learning platforms,
accreditation/certification of efforts in teaching robotics/ROS, ...


Potential participants are invited to submit either
* a full length paper (regular contributions), or
* a short paper (late breaking results or work in progress).

Due to time limitations, at the workshop only a poster session
and lightning talks to advertise a poster are possible.

In case of questions you can contact the organizers via

Submission will be available via EasyChair at


Submissions are accepted in PDF format only,
using the Springer LLNCS style.
Guidelines are available at:

Author names should be included.

Regular papers must not exceed 12 pages
and short papers must not exceed 6 pages,
including references and appendices.


Papers accepted at the workshop will be published
electronically in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org).
