It is an exciting time to do robotics research across all spectrums: from the smallest insect robot to large fleets of autonomous vehicles. With an ever-growing interest and increasing number of researchers in this field, we are at an inflection point where we can look back and evaluate how we are doing as a community.
This workshop is intended to provide a forum for discussions and commentary on topics about research, dissemination, and community, by taking inspiration from Computer Vision research and this excellent CVPR workshop. We bring forward discourse on important questions like: How to incentivize and do good systems research? How to best disseminate results, code, and hardware? How to be a fair reviewer? How to be a good area chair? How to support a caring and inclusive community? How to bridge the gap between academia and industry and the role of ethics in their interplay? and in general how to go about being a good citizen of robotics research.
Our community and its culture play a central role in the research we conduct and the robots we deploy into the real world. These discussions will guide us to acknowledge what has worked, and review areas where we could be doing more with a hope to foster an ever improving, inclusive, and productive community.
