Full Day Workshop #3
13 October 2016 @ IROS'16

After two successful workshops at theIEEE PHM'16 conference in Ottawa  and at SIPRI , the ATSI Forum at IROS 2016 will allow for discussion on the design of autonomous technologies and their societal impact in both positive and negative ways with particular emphasis on issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region but not exclusively. Emphasis will be placed not only on technology and public policy issues but also on environmental, cultural, structural, political, and socio-economic factors. Based on the discussions before, during, and after these workshops and forums, a White Paper consisting of valid and balanced  reflecting the state-of-the-art with an emphasis on technology and public policy issues that are representative of various stakeholders from across the globe will be published towards the end of 2016. The findings and summaries will be made available via the FDC website for other initiatives and similar efforts to use them as a reference guide to foster discussions within the community and to foster best practices.
