AIM AND SCOPE

Reinforcement Learning (RL) is promising for continuous learning and discovery of optimal policies for complex tasks. However, a major open challenge is the safety and robustness of decision-making for RL systems that has involved efforts from a variety of communities, including RL, human-robot interaction (HRI), control, and formal methods (FM).

The aim of this multidisciplinary workshop is to bring together researchers both in industry and academia from these communities to identify and clearly define key challenges and propose and debate existing approaches related to safe and robust exploration, formal safety and stability guarantees of control systems, safety in physical human-robot collaborative systems, and discuss methods and benchmarks to accelerate safe and robust RL research. To share ideas between communities, this workshop is designed to encourage fruitful and lively discussions between researchers and is open to anyone.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Based on the target areas and the discussions during our RL-CONFORM workshop at last year’s IROS, topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Data-efficiency, sim-to-real gap, and guided exploration in RL;
* Safety guarantees, shielding, invariant sets, and online verification;
* Stability, Lyapunov functions, controllability, and model identification;
* Query sample-efficiency, human-robot interaction, learning from demonstration, and human feedback;
* Existing and new benchmarks to accelerate safe and robust RL research.



CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

We invite extended abstract submissions of preliminary or ongoing work related to the topics of interest on safety and robustness in RL. All accepted abstracts will have the opportunity to be presented at the workshop during a short paper presentation session, in which the authors have a chance to present their work in a 5-minute presentation and engage in a 3-minute live Q&A session. This is a non-archival venue: there will be no formal proceedings, but we strongly encourage the authors to publish their extended abstracts on arXiv; links to the papers will be placed on the workshop’s website and will remain available after the workshop. Abstracts may be submitted to other venues in the future.
