Conference on Robot Learning (CoRL) - 2018 Edition
The Conference on Robot Learning (CoRL) is a new annual international conference focusing on the intersection of robotics and machine learning. The first meeting (CoRL 2017) was held in Mountain View, California on November 13 - 15, 2017, and brought together about 350 of the best researchers working on robotics and machine learning.

CoRL 2018 will be held on October 29th-31st, 2018, in Zürich, Switzerland.

The conference is organized with help from the International Foundation of Robotics Research (IFRR), publication support from the Journal of Machine Learning (JMLR), and financial support from sponsors.


CoRL proceedings will appear in the Proceedings of Machine Learning Research (PMLR). Selected papers will be invited for expedited review as regular submissions to the IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) and to the Journal of Machine Learning Research (JMLR).

The proceedings of CoRL 2017 are available here!
