Call for Forums

We are particularly interested in forums that discuss non-technical societal issues of robotics such as robotic society, robo-ethics, new jobs and employment, regulations, citizens, culture, etc. We are open to different proposals and themes that may be of broad interest for IROS 2018 attendees.
