Date: 28th of August

Venue: Room A (Sicily Room, 1st Floor). Online participation information is to be announced.

For online presenters: we request a prerecorded version of your presentation to be made available to us before the workshop start time (e.g., by emailing one of the organizers a link to where they can download the video from). This is to have a backup in case internet connections are poor that day.

Participation in the workshop requires a RO-MAN Workshops and Tutorials registration. This can be obtained from the RO-MAN website.

An initial draft of the schedule is provided below. All times are in Korea Standard Time (GMT+9).
