We are excited to announce this year’s edition of the RSS Pioneers workshop.

About RSS Pioneers: RSS Pioneers is an intensive workshop for senior Ph.D. students and postdocs in the robotics community. Held in conjunction with the main Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS) conference, each year the RSS Pioneers brings together a cohort of the world’s top early-career researchers. The workshop aims to provide these promising researchers with networking opportunities and help to navigate their next career stages, and foster creativity and collaboration surrounding challenges in all areas of robotics.

Mentors: This year, we have an exciting lineup of mentors including Wolfram Burgard (University of Freiburg), Vasu Raman (Nuro), Matthew Johnson-Roberson (University of Michigan), Ali-akbar Agha-mohammadi (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory), and more.

Webpage: Please visit our website for further details about the event and for the application process.

Applications are due March 22, 2021 (AoE). Please note that this year’s pioneers workshop will be a virtual event. We are working on making this Pioneers event as interactive as possible to transfer a full experience to our participants. Stay tuned for more details.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion: RSS Pioneers is committed to ensure and continually improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of the workshop. Diversity, equity, and inclusion at our workshop means new perspectives, ideas, and applications, all of which contribute to the success of our field. Individuals from groups underrepresented in robotics, such as minorities, women, and persons with disabilities, are encouraged to apply.
