The 12th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2020)
November 14-16, 2020
Golden, Colorado <>

TL;DR: ICSR is fully virtual and so we invite proposals for a broader-than-normal range of online based activities to be co-hosted with the conference. Simple 2 page proposals outline key activity details due by 31st July to [log in to unmask]


You may have seen the news that ICSR 2020 is going to be fully virtual this year and so we're really hoping to do something fresh with the workshop provision and invite you to be as creative and open-minded as possible in proposing workshops and/or other activities to be co-hosted with the conference. These could include, for example:
    (i) traditional workshops/panels
    (ii) debates
    (iii) robot poetry slams
    (iv) science fiction discussions
or any other activities you might like to propose so long as the content is appropriate and on topic. 

The only key requirements are as follows:
    (i) workshop organisers must be able to host the events themselves (e.g. via Zoom)
    (ii) a (recommended) maximum length of <4 hours to minimise zoom fatigue
so we really encourage you to be creative, and hope you might take this opportunity to explore something new!
