This workshop is an excellent opportunity to present and discuss ongoing works about human-robot collaboration, from “cobots" and manipulators to full humanoids.
We are interested into all topics related to collaboration: learning, control, interaction, robot design, safety, ergonomics, requirements, etc.
We are particularly interested in discussing the requirements for humanoids to be collaborative partners in real-world applications.
Are there some requirements in terms of technology, features, skills, capabilities, that we are still missing?
And what is the take of industries towards humanoids to be used in the future?
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS:
We welcome prospective participants to submit extended abstracts and short papers (up to 2 pages) to be presented as posters.
Manuscripts should use the IEEE double column template.
Papers will be selected based on relevance to the workshop, originality, technical contribution and clarity.
We will accept papers from different topics, including (and not limited to) control, learning, HRI, robot design.
The best contributed papers will be selected for oral presentation at the workshop.
Papers should be submitted via email to [hidden email] with the tag [humanoids_workshop]
