The computer vision and robotics communities have recently seen tremendous success in powerful, accurate visual reconstructions via implicit scene representations (neural radiance fields, signed distance functions, etc.). Similarly, there have been amazing successes in implicit policy representations for complex tasks. However, it remains unclear how to create or use such implicit representations within robotics for arbitrary manipulation tasks.

Given the exciting, rapidly-evolving state of the art in implicit representations, this workshop seeks to bring together a variety of speakers and participants in robotic manipulation, robot learning, planning, and computer vision to explore which role implicit representations can play in solving robotics tasks.
