CALL FOR POSTERS for “We Robot 2019” Conference 4/11-13/2019

Now in its 8th year, We Robot is the leading North American conference on robotics law and policy.  Hosted by the University of Miami School of Law, its the most exciting interdisciplinary conference on the legal and policy questions relating to robots. The increasing sophistication of robots and their widespread deployment everywhere—from the home, to hospitals, to public spaces, and even to the battlefield—disrupts existing legal regimes and requires new thinking on policy issues. If you are on the front lines of robot theory, design, or development, we hope you will attend. Come join the conversations between the people designing, building, and deploying robots, and the people who design or influence the legal and social structures in which robots will operate.

This year’s We Robot will also have a day of Workshops on April 11 before the main Conference. The Poster Session will be on April 12 during the main conference in order to showcase late-breaking research and developments.  The Conference itself is April 12-13 (click here for the Program).

We Robot 2019 will be held from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the University of Miami Newman Alumni Center 6200 San Amaro Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33146.


Call For Posters

We Robot invites poster submissions and seeks contributions by American and international academics, practitioners, and others, in the form of scholarly papers, technological demonstrations, or posters. We particularly encourage papers that reflect interdisciplinary collaborations between developers of robotics, AI, and related technology and experts in the humanities, social science, and law and policy.

How to Submit a Poster Proposal   We Robot’s poster session is designed to accommodate late-breaking and cutting edge projects. This session is ideal for researchers to get feedback on a work in progress. 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 12, 2019 and for a “lightning round” of one-minute presentations during the main session. If your poster is accepted, we will waive all conference fees. You can bring the poster or, in some cases, with sufficient lead time we may be able to print it in Miami for you. If accepted, you will also need to provide a web-friendly summary of the work that we can post on the conference web site.

How to propose a poster session. Please send an up to 500 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 conference submission portal. Please be sure to choose the “Posters ” track for your upload. Submissions open January 15, 2019 and are due by March 21, 2019, and we will send acceptances on a rolling basis.
