2nd Workshop on Dexterous Manipulation:
Design, Perception and Control

Full-Day RSS 2024 Workshop, July 15, 2024


This workshop aims to pioneer the exploration of learning-based strategies for achieving dexterous manipulation in robotics. Dexterous manipulation is among the most challenging problems in robotics, and this event seeks to provide insights and viewpoints for researchers and attendees on this subject. We will delve into current research and advancements in the hardware design of dexterous manipulators, generalizable manipulation learning approaches, and sensing technologies like tactile sensors.

Following our first dexterous manipulation workshop in RSS 2023. This workshop is Intended for a wide range of audiences, including researchers, engineers, and students with a strong foundation or interests in machine learning, computer vision, robotics, and related fields. The workshop promises a rich dialogue among leading experts from academic and industrial backgrounds. Accepted papers will have a chance to be presented in poster sessions and contributed talks. Through these events, participants will gain insights into the latest breakthroughs and collaborative opportunities, setting the stage for future innovations in robotic learning.
