[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Participation: ICRA 2018 Workshop on Machine Learning in Planning and Control of Robot Motion

Lewis Chiang
** We have received many exciting paper and poster submissions (final
program out shortly), we look forward to see you at ICRA 2018**

*Apologies for cross postings*

Third Machine Learning in Planning and Control of Robot Motion Workshop at

The workshop aims to spark vibrant discussion with talks from invited
speakers, presentations from authors of accepted papers, and a poster
session. Because machine learning methods are often heuristic, issues such
as safety and performance are critical. Also, learning-based questions such
as problem learnability, knowledge transfer among robots, knowledge
generalization, long-term autonomy, task formulation, demonstration, role
of simulation, and methods for feature selection define problem solvability.

Intended audience

- Motion planners with interests in learning and planning for changing
agents, environment, or both
- Reinforcement learning and machine learning communities that develop
novel learning methods for autonomous agents
- Multi-agent researchers
- Controls community focused on controlling physical systems
- Robotics community


Topics of interest

Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Task representation and classification
- Planning for complex and high dimensional environments
- Smart sampling techniques for motion planning
- Learning feature selection
- Methods for incorporating learning into planning
- Reinforcement learning for robotics and dynamical systems
- Transfer of learning and motion plans, knowledge and experience sharing
among the agents
- Policy selection: exploration versus exploitation, methods for safe
- Methods for creating motion plans that meet dynamical constraints
- Task planning and learning under uncertainty and disturbance
- Motion planning for system stability
- Adaptable heuristics for efficient motion plans
- Motion generalization - methods that learn subset of motion and produce
plans with higher range of motions
- Motion planning for multi-agent systems and fleets
