At CoRL we recognize the intrinsic value of diverse perspectives and identities in the robotics community. We are committed to creating space for and promoting participation of groups traditionally underrepresented and underserved in robotics, including those who self-identify as women or non-binary, LGBTQIA+, as a person with a disability, and/or as an underrepresented minority. To this end, Inclusion@CoRL will be a central feature of CoRL that aims to provide programming and support with social events, panel sessions, and sponsored funding.

Registration Discounts for Historically Underrepresented Groups

Attendance support for CoRL is available for conference participants which identify as a member of an underrepresented or under-served community in robotics. To receive a discount code for your registration, please apply here.

Inclusion@CoRL Organized Events

We invite all attendees to engage with our events.

Grand Challenges in Robotics: Panel + Social (Tuesday 1:00-2:30PM PT)

An hour long panel with academic and industry leaders will discuss their perspectives on technical hurtles at the intersection of robotics and ML/AI, in addition to thoughts on effective collaboration, inclusion and equity, and their vision for the future of the community. A half-hour social will follow this event. The panel will be streamed live to our Youtube page and can be accessed via Pheedloop. The social will be hosted on Gather.Town (no need for an account), and can be accessed via Pheedloop.

Identity and Professional Development Roundtables (Wednesday 6:00-7:00AM PT)

Representatives from Women in Machine Learning and Queer in AI will host roundtable discussions with participants around career planning and advice. Inclusion@CoRL will also host a roundtable at this event with several early-career academic and industry professionals for a structured discussion on their experiences and perspectives. Links to these virtual tables can be found via Pheedloop.
