Workshop of CHARMS 2020

Cyber physical systems (CPS) and robots are becoming more involved in the lives of humans. All indications point to a future where many varieties of CPS, robots and humans co-exist and, at a minimum, must interact consistently through life’s tasks. This workshop will explore ideas of the future to understand, discern and develop the relationships between humans, robots and CPS and the practical nature of software agents to facilitate the integration.

The general interest of this workshop is the research intersection between humans, agents, robots and machines and sensors. Specifically, how agents can be used in the modeling, design, implementation and experimentation of these complex systems. Intersecting humans and CPS are agents and multiagent systems tasked to map the interaction, communication and networked relationships.

The goals of this workshop are to provide a forum to exchange ideas, present results, share experience, and enhance collaborations among researchers, practitioners, and developers in numerous areas of communicative interfaces between humans, robots and other entities.

Workshop of ERRoSS 2020

Robots become more and more intelligent due to the increased penetration of general-purpose computing technologies. Software frameworks like ROS gain in popularity each year. Despite the big success of software-driven robotics however, building fault-tolerant and resilient software for robotics remains a challenge. Compared to methods that are common in modern software engineering, software engineering in robotics lags behind several years due to the complexity and immaturity of the field leading to error-prone robotic systems and tedious development processes.

This workshop benefits the field of robotic software engineering by promoting novel ideas, technologies, tools, and best practices for building high-quality, robust and resilient robotic software. Feature-driven development of robotic software is still hardly possible in the environments we currently work in since the sheer complexity of the technology itself is challenging enough. With this workshop, we want to lay the foundations for a community bringing together roboticists and software people who push for developer productivity, modern methods and tools because, in the end, robots can only be good if their developers find perfect circumstances for engineering them.
