Hi Everyone,

Got a neat robot simulator that you'd like to show off?
Been working on a killer dynamic model or sensor noise model?
Have some real-world simulation experiences that you are dying to share?

*The R4SIM is the workshop for you!*

The RSS 2015 R4SIM workshop is motivated by the need for robotics
simulators that (i) lower the barriers to entering robotics research, (ii)
provide a means to realistically and comprehensively simulate systems in
conditions, or at scales, that would be infeasible or impossible to test
experimentally, and (iii) enable efficient and reliable transition to and
from hardware experiments.

We invite contributions for a wide range of topics in robotic simulation.
Special weighting will be given to those contributions with a data-driven
focus, and particularly if they are accompanied by a demonstration or open

Subjects of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Dynamics models
- Control models
- Sensor noise models
- Environmental models
- Radio / communication models
- Patterns and architectures
- Optimization and performance
- Hardware in the loop designs
- Systems and experiences
- Demonstrations

Submissions should take the form of an extended abstract (2-3 pages) or a
full paper (up to 8 pages), and can be a presentation of work in progress
or a summary of recent research advances. We strongly encourage submissions
that are accompanied by a practical component (code and data sets) or a
demonstration. Selected contributions will be presented at the workshop as
talks or hands-on sessions, but will not be archived.

Important dates:

- Submission site open : March 31, 2015
- Submissions due: June 2, 2015 (11:59pm PDT)
- Paper decisions: June 16, 2015
- Final program: June 30, 2015
- Camera-ready due: July 7, 2015 (11:59pm PDT)
- Workshop date: July 16, 2015

See you in Rome!
