Significant progress has been made in the replicability of results in robotics research and their objective evaluation and comparison in recent years. A RAM special issue composed of replicable experiments and guest edited by some of the proposers has been published at the end of 2015 and the 2015 IEEE Summer School dedicated to same topics has been held.


This workshop aims to share the recent developments  and to discuss how to cope with the still open issues.


This worskshop is meant as a gathering of the TG on benchmarking and competitions members.

It is partially funded by the ECHORD++ project
