Workshop on *Variable Impedance Robot Skills: Control & Learning*
IROS 2018, 1-5 Oct., Madrid, Spain

Dear Colleagues,

We would kindly like to remind you to participate in *IROS** 2018* Workshop
on *Variable Impedance Robot Skills: Control & Learning*, which will be
held on *Monday 1**st** of October 2018*.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts, from control theory
and machine learning, as a means to examine current research on how to
successfully transfer compliant motions from humans to robots, allowing for
safe and energy-efficient interactions. Moreover, this workshop will
discuss the most recent achievements in variable impedance robot skills.

For more information about the workshop and updates, please visit the
workshop webpage: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__iros18wsimpedance.weebly.com_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=2LASy_EDHMtv6dzBJPbt1-hHYDGfVzPabgkt_P08XbI&s=DDP-xuTXjDiJdj3FurUAswgf5wqqaOO0rQZPuwSfFOI&e=

*CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS:*
We will welcome prospective participants to submit extended abstracts (2 to
4 pages) related to the workshop's topics of interest to be presented as
posters. The manuscripts should use the IEEE IROS two-column format. A PDF
copy of the manuscript should be submitted through the dedicated EasyChair
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_conferences_-3Fconf-3Dvirs-2Dcl18&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=2LASy_EDHMtv6dzBJPbt1-hHYDGfVzPabgkt_P08XbI&s=gjk-SFwNm1RUKEDj6WzYSgC2NF7mMzcukS58Qtr6BZI&e=> access. Each paper will
receive a minimum of two reviews. Papers will be selected based on their
originality, relevance to the workshop topics, contributions, technical
clarity, and presentation. Accepted papers require that at least one of the
authors register for the workshop.

Accepted papers will be presented as short oral presentation and posters
contribution prepared in advance. The presentation should be up to 3-
minutes talk in a teaser form to give opportunity for all presenters to
highlight the key findings of their research and identify their poster to
the audience.

Moreover, the workshop will welcome prospective participants to submit
videos related to the workshop's topics of interest. The video should be
uploaded on youtube (up to 2mins) and the link should be submitted along
with an abstract (video description) to the dedicated EasyChair
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_conferences_-3Fconf-3Dvirs-2Dcl18&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=2LASy_EDHMtv6dzBJPbt1-hHYDGfVzPabgkt_P08XbI&s=gjk-SFwNm1RUKEDj6WzYSgC2NF7mMzcukS58Qtr6BZI&e=> access. Accepted videos
require that at least one of the authors register for the workshop. These
videos will be projected during the workshop and will be posted on the
webpage of the workshop.
