ICRA 2022 Workshop Call

Robotics for Climate Change

23 May 2022 · Room 108 B

Call for Contribution

We invite interested researchers to submit 2-4 pages extended abstract of work relevant to the topic of Robotis for Climate Change. We encourage submissions on all fields related to new trends in robotics for climate change, in particular (but not limited to) the topics listed below. We specially encourage innovations from “non-traditional” robotics and late breaking results. The best paper and the best presentation will be awarded with a prize. 

The abstracts proposed to the workshop will be evaluated on relevance to the workshop theme, novelty, and impact. The accepted abstracts will be posted on the workshop website and will not appear in the official IEEE proceedings. The reviewing is single blind and will be carried out by the workshop organizers. The accepted papers will have the opportunity to present their work/ideas in a poster session or as a or video demonstration presentation.

Each extended abstract is limited to 4 pages (including references). The IEEE conference template  in two-column format must be used. More information about the template can be found here: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html.

All abstracts should be submitted through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rccicra2022.
