RSS Pioneers


RSS Pioneers is a day-long workshop for senior graduate students and postdocs, held in conjunction with the main RSS conference, that seeks to bring together a cohort of the world’s top early career researchers in robotics. The first annual RSS Pioneers will be held on Friday, June 21, 2019 at Faculty of Engineering, University of Freiburg.

The goal of RSS Pioneers is to foster collaboration, networking, and professional development among a new generation of robotics researchers. The workshop will include a mix of research and career talks from senior scholars in the field, research presentations from attendees, networking activities, and mentoring of junior students, as part of the Inclusion@RSS initiative. To facilitate attendance, the workshop will provide partial support for travel and registration for RSS Pioneers and the main RSS 2019 conference.

Details about the workshop are available at the workshop website.
