ICRA 2019 Workshop

23 May 2019 · Room 520b

Keynote Speakers

The workshop format will include morning and afternoon keynote talks by researchers covering topics that are essential for addressing the workshop central topic.

Confirmed speakers in order of presentation:

Poster Sessions

Posters: Two 45 minute poster sessions will be conducted (morning and afternoon) that will allow authors of selected submissions to present work in this research area, and interact with other researchers and government/industry participants. Selected submissions* that are highly relevant to the workshop theme will be invited to give short (15-minute) oral presentations.

Selected Poster Abstracts – Morning Session – 10:30

Selected Poster Abstracts – Afternoon Session – 14:00

Discussion Panels

Morning Panel – 10:45

The morning panel will consist of members of organizations (government and industry) that sponsor research for attendees to learn from international experts in defining the real-world problems that motivate this work.


  • LTC Philip Root, Acting Deputy Director, Tactical Technology Office, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
  • Dr. Stuart Young, Program Manager, Artifcial Intelligence for Maneuver and Mobility, Army Research Laboratory
  • Dr. Todd Danko, Principal Roboticist, General Electric Global Research

Afternoon Panel – 16:15

The afternoon panel will bring together experts in both the problem and solution areas for an open discussion with the attendees to further understanding and discuss future directions.
