The European public is greatly skeptical and mostly unaware about the current
robotics technology and its function in today's world. This is an interesting workshop that can have a remarkable impact on the image of robotics for the general public and the media.

In 2011, the European Robotics Week took place with tremendous success. Therefore, the workshop this year will mainly focus on the coordination and organisational aspect of the European Robotics week in 2011, the experience itself (negative or positive), lessons learned, what can be improved, and the way forward: A decision concerning next year's European Robotics Week should be made - Would the robotics community like to make this into an annual tradition?

The audience is invited to actively participate in discussions concerning the above topics and share their experience, provide input and voice their opinion.
