WAFR is a biannual multi-disciplinary single-track meeting of international researchers presenting the latest advances on algorithmic problems in robotics. Since its inception in 1994, WAFR has established a reputation as a premier venue for presenting algorithmic work related to robotics.

The focus of WAFR is on the design and analysis of robot algorithms from both theoretical and practical angles. The
design and analysis of algorithms and foundations of robotics raise unique questions in a variety of traditional and new fields including but not limited to:
- Control theory and optimization,
- Computational geometry and topology,
- Motion planning,
- Planning and reasoning under uncertainty,
- Randomized and sampling-based algorithms,
- Decision theory and game theory,
- Machine learning, including supervised and unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, representation learning, imitation learning,
- Algorithmic approaches to human-robot interaction, and
- Theoretical computer science.

In addition to these topics, we also encourage papers on applications of robot algorithms to important or new domains, such as:
- Manufacturing,
- Assistive and service robots,
- Legged locomotion,
- Surgical robots,
- Intelligent prosthetics,
- Multi-agent and transportation networks,
- Computational biology,
- Graphics and animation,
- Sensor networks,
- Brain-controlled robots, and
- others.

The workshop proceedings will be published in the Springer Proceedings in Advanced Robotics (SPAR) series.
