Fourth Machine Learning in Planning and Control of Robot Motion Workshop
Paris, France on June 4, 2020
Modern robots are increasingly expected to perform complex tasks in the real world. These tasks are complicated by high-dimensional state spaces, changing environments, nonlinear dynamics, and significant uncertainty throughout the robotic stack. The ability to plan and control robotic systems lies at the core of addressing these challenges. Recent successes in machine learning offer promising steps forward towards addressing these issues.
Following previous workshops on Machine Learning in the Planning and Control of Robot Motion (2014, 2015, 2018), this workshop seeks to continue to explore methods and directions for integrating machine learning with robotic planning and control. This workshop will feature talks from leading experts, panel discussions, solicited papers, and poster presentations in an effort to:
- Develop a community of researchers working on machine learning methods in complementary fields of motion planning and controls
- Discuss current state of the art and future directions of intelligent motion planning and controls
- Provide for collaboration opportunities
Call for Papers
Please submit all submissions in IEEE format via Microsoft CMT at https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/MLPC2020/ by March 18, 2020 AOE.
We invite authors to submit via two tracks to the workshop: short papers or demos.
- Papers (up to 6 pages in the above format)- to be presented as posters with a selected few spotlight talks
- Demos / Interactive Exhibits (1 page extended abstract)- e.g., robot demonstrations, software demonstrations
The deadline for these submissions is March 18, 2020 AOE with decisions announced April 17, 2020.
Speakers and Schedule
- Sergey Levine (UC Berkeley)
- Nathan Ratliff (NVIDIA)
- Aude Billard (EPFL)
- Leslie Kaelbling (MIT)
- Michael Beetz (University Bremen)
The workshop schedule is still pending, but will be a full day with invited talks, spotlight talks, a panel discussion, demos, and a two poster sessions.
