 Autoware Workshop IV2022

The 4th Autoware workshop at the Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV2022) ended. 

Thank you to all who attended and helped make IV2022 a great success!

On June 5th, 2022, the workshop took place in Aachen, Germany, in hybrid mode.


Autoware Workshop IV2022 is a workshop aimed at developers of all levels, from student to professional, in the ROSCon, PyCon, and BoostCon models. It will be a full-day program featuring technical talks and tutorials to introduce the state of Autoware, new algorithms, tools, and libraries, as well as demonstrations.​


 Autoware IV2022 Workshop Proposal Submission

We are now accepting proposals for presentations at the workshop. Presentations on all topics related to Autoware are welcome, e.g., introduction of the participants to an Autoware package or a library or application, investigation of the use of tools, etc. The program committee will examine the proposals, which assesses their suitability, influence, and balance.​

Women, members of minority groups, and members of other under-represented groups are encouraged to submit presentation proposals for Autoware@IV2021.

Proposals will be reviewed by a program committee evaluating fit, impact, and balance. We cannot offer presentations that are not proposed!

If there is a topic on which you would like to present, please propose it. If you have an idea for an important topic that you do not want to present yourself, please post it for discussion at Autoware Discourse or Slack.

 Workshop Topic Areas

All Autoware-related work is invited. Topics of interest include:

  • Best practices
  • New packages
  • Vehicle-specific development
  • Simulation
  • Safety and security
  • Embedded systems
  • Product development & commercialization
  • Research and education
  • Community organization and direction
  • Testing, quality, and documentation
  • Competitions and collaborations
  • Related open-source projects​

 Proposal Format

Contribution proposal:

  • Title
  • Presenter (name and affiliation)
  • Recommended duration: Short (~10 minutes), Medium (~20 minutes) or Long (~30 minutes)
  • Summary [maximum 100 words]: to be used in advertising the presentation
  • Description [maximum 1000 words]: outline, goals (what will the audience learn?), pointers  to packages to be discussed

 

Please be sure to include in your proposal enough information for the program committee to evaluate the importance and impact of your presentation. We strongly encourage you to provide links to publicly available resources, including code repositories and demonstration videos. Demonstrated community interest is helpful in evaluating proposals. A proposal that promises to make an open-source release in the future is difficult for the program committee to evaluate and less likely to be accepted.
