Deadline for We Robot Poster Proposals Extended to March 11

Applications are now open for the first-ever We Robot poster session – and the deadline for proposals has been extended until March 11, 2016 due to planned maintenance and downtime of the submission site scheduled for, wouldn’t you guess it, March 8, the original deadline. A list of posters that have already been accepted is on our program — but there’s still room for some more.

We seek late-breaking and cutting edge projects. This session is ideal for researchers to get feedback on a work in progress and professionals, academics and graduate students are all encouraged to participate. At least one of the authors of each accepted poster should plan to be present at the poster during the entire poster session on the afternoon of April 1, 2016 and for a “lightning round” of one-minute presentations.

How to propose a poster session. Please send an up to 400 word description of what you have or are doing, with links to any relevant photos or audio visual information, as well as your C.V., via the conferencing system at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ROBOT2016/. Please be sure to choose the “Posters” track for your upload. Submissions are due by March 8, 2016. We’ll accept poster proposals on a rolling basis. Remember, at least one author of an accepted poster must register at the conference to submit the final version – but we’ll waive the conference fee for that person.

About the Conference. We Robot 2016 will be held in Coral Gables, Florida on April 1-2, 2016 at the University of Miami School of Law, with a special day of Workshops on March 31. We Robot is the premiere US conference on law and policy relating to Robotics. It began at the University of Miami School of Law in 2012, and has since been held at Stanford and University of Washington. Attendees include lawyers, engineers, philosophers, robot builders, ethicists, and regulators who are on the front lines of robot theory, design, or development. The We Robot 2016 conference web site is http://robots.law.miami.edu/2016.
