ICRA 2018 Workshop

Call for Contribution

We invite interested researchers to submit a 1-2 pages extended abstract of relevant work. 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, selected papers will be invited to give a 15 minute oral presentation, and best poster will be awarded.

Please submit your abstract to the workshop official email address RT.DUNE@gmail.com before 15 March 2018.

In addition, a selected number of papers from the poster sessions will be invited to submit their novel work to the Special Issue we are proposing in an upcoming journal. This special issue will cover the main topics of interest of this workshop.
