We Robot 2019 Preliminary Workshop Schedule

We Robot starts with a day of optional Workshops on April 11. Because We Robot is so interdisciplinary, we’ve found it helpful to offer attendees introductions to basic concepts in a variety of fields so that we can all have a common vocabulary.   The workshop day is optional: you can register for it when reserve your place at We Robot 2019 (April 12-13).
