RSS Pioneers is a day-long invitation-only workshop for senior graduate students and postdocs, held in conjunction with Robotics: Science and Systems, that seeks to bring together a cohort of the world’s top early career researchers in all areas of robotics. The first annual RSS Pioneers will be held on Monday, June 25, 2018 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.
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 top 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 2018 conference.
