Motivation:
The field of robotics and automation has grown significantly during the past few decades. Today, we are seeing some of the most ground-breaking work being performed by researchers with very different backgrounds: medical doctors collaborating with software and tool designers, physiologists and neuroscientists collaborating with computer vision researchers, behavior and social study researchers collaborating with developers of humanoid robots. It appears that this synergistic trend has brought more women into the field of robotics and automation, which has historically been dominated by men. However, there are still relatively few women at robotics and automation conferences. Our long-term goal is to develop activities that increase the number of women participating in the field of robotics and automation.

Topics to discuss:
Career difficulties/requirements/paths
What are the research interests of female researchers in robotics and automation?
What is the male/female senior researcher ratio in RAS and IEEE as a whole?
What is the male/female student ratio in RAS?
Strategies for encouraging young women (from grade school through graduate school) to join the robotics field.?
