someone accomplished in the subject of the workshop, which I am not. But

Dear Professor McCarthy,

I wish you all my best for a Happy and Fruitful New Year.

I am glad to inform you that the IEEE-Robotics and Automation Society's
Technical Committee on Roboethics, which is co-Chaired by Gianmarco
Veruggio, is organizing an international Full Day Workshop, 17th of May,
2009, in the frame of the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Robotics
and Automation (ICRA2009), to be held in Kobe, Japan, from 12 to 17 May

Here you can find the Workshop's website:


In light of your interest on Roboethics, and of your outstanding
research activity in the field of human-robot interaction, I think that
the participants will be glad and inspired by a talk of yours.

I warmly hope you can send to the Committee an abstract and a paper.

I am at you disposal for any information you would need. I am using this
occasion to send you my kindest regards, on behalf of Gianmarco Veruggio.

Yours, cordially,

Fiorella Operto
