Call for Workshop/Tutorial Proposals

We invite proposals for half-day or full-day workshops and tutorials. These workshops and tutorials will be held both before the main conference, on December 13 (Tuesday). They will take place at the main conference venue, the Parc 55, a Hilton Hotel in San Francisco, California, USA. The primary criteria for selection are the anticipated level of interest, the potential impact, and the presenters' technical background.

Workshops promote informal discussion of an active research area. Tutorials involve formal presentation of the principles (e.g., tools and methods) behind an established research area. We particularly welcome creative new formats for both workshops and tutorials that increase the number of participants, that encourage participants to stay for the full duration of the event, that enhance discussion among participants, that increase the level of interaction between established experts and early-career researchers, and that make useful connections to fields outside of robotics.

A proposal must be a pdf file submitted via e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (max. file size: 2 MB). Proposals should not exceed two pages and must have these elements:

1. Type and duration. Specify workshop or tutorial, half-day or full-day.
2. Title.
3. Organizers.
4. Abstract. 200 words maximum.

6. Plan to solicit participation. 200 words maximum.

We look forward to hosting your workshops and tutorials at SIMPAR 2016.
