Feedback, comments, discussions
A questionaire was distributed at the end of the workshop to get some
feedback and comments from the attendees. 23 questionaires were
returned, we hope they are representative of the general opinion.
The questionaire and the results can be found
here. It comes out that the workshop
was a rather interesting and fruitful day. People found the talks
interesting and at the right level of details. The panel sessions,
which gave rise to passionate discussions, were generally found useful
and informative. They showed the importance of establishing common
vocabularies and definitions between different research fields.
Again, many thanks to the speakers and panelists!
Finally, The questionaire also showed that there was a strong
interest in having
between people interested in cooperation
between Robotics, Biology and Psychology.
We received several comments for improvements from different attendees
and we are grateful for them. They may not reflect the general opinion.
If you were at the workshop and would like to give some more comments,
don't hesitate to send us an email.
A short summary and some more comments can be found on
Good composition of panels but questions should have been more
directed to prepared debate topics.
Some speakers too vague on the Robotics/Biology problem.
Good range of speakers.
More shorter talks or same number but shorter with more discussions.
Second panel caught up in definitions rather than a more constructive
Workshop too short given the subject diversity. Subject areas should
be more specific.
More time for panel discussions.
We would be very happy to update this page and make it a basis for
discussions on the cooperation between Robotics, Biology and
Psychology. Feel free to send us your opinions and we will add them
Here are for instance some remarks from Eric Ronco (Glasgow) on
`natural' vs engineered robotics.
