Aim and Scope

Along the history there are many important discoveries that resulted from long trials and error processes (e.g. the electric light bulb from Edison) or from analyzing 'failed' results (e.g. the Michelson-Morley experiment). In each case, the key contributor for the final success was the willingness to learn from previous mistakes and to share the gained experience with the research community.

The path to progress in the field of robotics is not free of failures and caveats. These failures provide valuable lessons and insights on future approaches by analyzing errors and finding methods to avoid them. As such, the robotics community could benefit from the experience of those who had faced and overcome similar failures before.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers to share their personal experiences on their 'failure to success' stories, to present what they have learnt, what others should avoid while experimenting in similar context, providing tips for better research practices and for creating more successful robots that meet people's expectations.

The topics of the workshop include, but are not restricted to:

* Analysis of failures when participating in robotic challenges
* Design of robust human-computer interfaces for robots
* When failure is not an option: creating an outstanding robot from hardware to software
* The search for errors: benchmarking and tools for testing robots
* Avoiding common but frequently seen errors when deploying robots for industrial or general public environments
* Advanced techniques for failure recovery and troubleshooting
* Matching the expectations and needs of industries and consumers with the current technology
* Alternatives to techniques and algorithms that are prone to fail
* The keys for successful research projects and proposals on robotics
* Analysis of failed results and projects when using smart algorithms, well-established techniques or brilliant designs


Submission Information

All papers must be written in English and submitted electronically in PDF format that has to conform to the manuscript preparation guidelines (http://ras.papercept.net/conferences/support/support.php). All papers are reviewed using a single-blind review process. The paper extension should be no less than 4 pages and not more than 8 pages, excluding references. The organizing committee is managing to publish selected best papers in a well-known journal (more information will be provided later).

The papers should be submitted via EasyChair to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=finer2015
