Submission of extended abstracts - Call for Papers:

We are soliciting submissions of extended abstracts of maximum 3 pages on research related to the planning aspects of human-robot interaction for shared autonomy and collaborative robotics. Accepted abstracts will presented at the workshop as a short spotlight talk followed by a poster session.

Abstracts should be submitted as a PDF file using the same format as for the main RSS conference submissions.

Accepted abstracts will be archived on the workshop website.
