About the Workshop
This workshop aims to foster communication around current paradigms for autonomous vehicles. While we see sufficient maturity in all parts of the classical self-driving stack, their combined performance leaves room for improvement. In the past years, ML-first solutions have been showing promising results, not only in simulation or simplified scenarios, but also in real-world, complex environments. We want to open up the discussion on the challenges that need to be solved in order to enable the next generation of AVs and to encourage new ideas regarding their scalability and safety.
All events will be held in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Room 118 B. All times are in Eastern Time (ET).

Call for Papers
We invite submissions to the Fresh Perspectives on the Future of Autonomous Driving workshop, hosted at ICRA 2022.
A non-exhaustive list of relevant topics:
Approaches to autonomous driving that break from traditional interfaces or abstractions
End-to-end approaches to autonomous driving
Approaches that account for interactions between traditional subcomponents (e.g., between perception and planning)
Learned methods for planning and control and their ability to generalize
Learning from demonstrations / imitation learning
Reward function learning
The collection, curation, and sampling of datasets for end-to-end or learned decision making approaches
Methods for validating / evaluating the performance of end-to-end / learned approaches
Methods for interpreting or debugging learned approaches
Submission Portal: CMT
Manuscripts should follow the ICRA 2022 paper template.
Direct links to ieeeconf.zip and IEEEtranBST.zip.
Paper Length: The page limit is 6 pages (excluding references and appendix).
Dual Submission: We accept dual submissions, but the manuscript must contain substantial original contents not submitted to prior conferences, workshop, or journal.
Non-archival: The workshop is a non-archival venue and will not have official proceedings. Workshop submissions can be subsequently or concurrently submitted to other venues.
Visibility: Submissions and reviews will be private. Only accepted papers will be made public.
Review and Selection
The review process will be double-blind. As an author, you are responsible for anonymizing your submission. You should not include author names, author affiliations, or acknowledgements in your submission.
All accepted papers will be presented as posters. The guidelines for the posters are the same as at the main conference.
At least one co-author of each accepted paper is expected to register for ICRA 2022 and attend the poster session. Remote attendance permitted.
If you need a Visa to enter the US, please apply for one as early as possible. See Visa information provided on the ICRA website.
All the accepted submissions will be available on our workshop website, though authors could indicate explicitly if they want to opt out.
Extended paper submission deadline : April 25th, 2022 (anywhere on earth)
Notification to authors: May 9th, 2022
Information for authors of accepted papers
Posters: Authors should prepare a poster to be presented at the conference.
The ICRA 2022 poster guidelines suggest a poster no larger than 60" wide and 40" tall (1.5m wide x 1m tall).
