Call for Tutorials

IROS 2018 seeks to provide an extensive program of workshops and tutorials to be held prior to and after the conference. Proposals that address topics related to the conference theme are welcome. We invite proposals for half-day or full-day tutorials.


All deadlines are 23:59 PST

Mar 11, 2018

Tutorial Proposals submission deadline

Apr 20, 2018

Notification of acceptance

Oct 1 and 5, 2018

Workshops and tutorials

Tutorial proposals should identify proposed mechanisms for content delivery and identify how the proposed tutorial will complement and enhance the IROS technical program. We particularly welcome creative new formats 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 general audiences, and that make useful connections to fields outside of robotics.

Proposals must be submitted via PaperPlaza and must address these points:

  • Type and Duration

  • Title

  • Organizers

  • Objectives

  • List of speakers

  • Intended audience

  • Expected attendance

  • Why this tutorial is not expected to be covered by other IROS activities

  • Details of any other workshops/tutorials at IROS in which the proposers are involved

  • Support/Endorsements

  • Special requests (equipment or other issues)

A Microsoft Word Template is available to help you structure the proposal.  Accepted proposals will be asked to provide an abstract and a dedicated website for their event.
