This document is the current edition of a publication series which records the topics, discussions and efforts
of the workgroups at the DFKI Robotics Innovation Center (RIC). Each edition contains presentation slides
and posters of a project day which is organized by two workgroups.
Workgroups provide a platform for cross-project communication and knowledge transfer. They are formed
by peers dedicated to a specific topic. Each workgroup has one administrator. In 2008, the workgroups
started to present their results and efforts in an open presentation format called brown-bag talk. From 2009
onwards, these presentation were held at so-called project days. Since 2014, a project day consists of two
main parts: an oral session and a poster session. Both sessions are documented in a proceedings using the
DFKI Document format.
