[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Participations: ICRA 2018 Workshop on Elderly Care Robotics – Technology and Ethics (WELCARO)

Dear all,

We would kindly like to invite you to participate in ICRA 2018 Workshop on Dynamic Legged Locomotion in Realistic, which will be held on Monday 21th of May 2018 (Room P5 - Plaza Level).

This workshop will share knowledge about technological opportunities and challenges regarding robots and systems for assistive care for older people as well as open a dialogue within the scientific society about the ethical issues to be considered.

Please see the workshop website for details and updates: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sites.google.com_site_icra2018welcaro&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=ZLybArgd1nUSqPeT4kmrrqaIk3P3CEr8L3EjRUtrsbM&s=CxwHgcr32pNijDQInRYulZjvzLdS3rEYRrPFkjd-g14&e= <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sites.google.com_site_icra2018welcaro&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=ZLybArgd1nUSqPeT4kmrrqaIk3P3CEr8L3EjRUtrsbM&s=CxwHgcr32pNijDQInRYulZjvzLdS3rEYRrPFkjd-g14&e=>
