The Autoware Foundation is organizing the 3rd workshop Autoware at the Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV2021), which will be held online.

The workshop will take place on Sunday, July 11th, 2021, in hybrid-flexible mode.

We are looking forward to your participation. 

Autoware Workshop

Autoware@IV2021 is a workshop aimed for developers of all levels, student to professional in the model of ROSCOn, PyCon, and BoostCon. It will be a full-day program featuring technical talks and tutorials to introduce the state of Autoware, new algorithms, tools, and libraries, as well as demonstrations.

We welcome your papers and presentation proposals.


The program will be comprised of 10-30 minute presentations

(some may be shorter or longer).



Papers/presentation proposal submission is open!!!

We are now accepting proposals for presentations at the workshop. Presentations on all topics related to Autoware are welcome, e.g. introduction of the participants to an Autoware package or a library or application, investigation of the use of tools, etc. The proposals will be examined by the program committee which assesses their suitability, influence, and balance.

Women, members of minority groups, and members of other under-represented groups are encouraged to submit presentation proposals for Autoware@IV2021.


Proposals will be reviewed by a program committee that will evaluate fit, impact, and balance. We cannot offer presentations that are not proposed!


If there is a topic on which you would like to present, please propose it. If you have an idea for an important topic that you do not want to present yourself, please post it for discussion at Autoware Discourse or Slack.



The full details of the program can be found here:



Agenda will be shared in due course.




We eagerly encourage authors to submit paper contributions at the Autoware Workshop. Please follow the paper submission deadlines and format defined at IV2021’s  information for authors. Submissions will follow the conventional review process, and selected papers will be included in IV2021 proceedings and published at IEEE Xplore.


Presentations without paper submission are also welcome. Please submit your presentation proposal in the following format:
・Presenter (name and affiliation)
・Desired duration: Short (-10 minutes), Medium (-20 minutes) or Long (-30 minutes)
・Summary [max. 100 words]: to be used for advertising your presentation
・Description [max. 1000 words]: outline, goals (what will the audience learn?), pointers to packages to be discussed
Please be sure to include in your proposal enough information for the program committee to evaluate the importance and impact of your presentation. We strongly encourage you to provide links to publicly available resources, including code repositories and demonstration videos. Demonstrated community interest is helpful in evaluating proposals. A proposal that promises to make an open source release in the future is difficult for the program committee to evaluate and less likely to be accepted.
