Dear Organizers and everyone participating,
Thanks a lot for your effort and great work. I was wondering how the procedure will be in demanding access to the robots after the deadline of today.
I am asking because we would like to further test and benchmark our algorithm such that we can later also publish the results. Therefore, we need to conduct more rigorous experiments.
We also wanted to ask the other participants and the organizers if anyone would be interested in joining forces and collaborating on writing a joint paper. We think that presenting various algorithms and approaches in one place and doing a thorough ablation study would have the biggest impact. Perhaps we could even consider combining our approaches to figure out which design choices make the biggest difference.
If you are interested, feel free to just write me an e-Mail - email@example.com - we can then figure out the details. Of course, we are also very open to other suggestions.
