Call for papers
"Physical Human-Robot Interaction in Anthropic Domains"
Organizers: Antonio Bicchi
(<mailto:bicchi at ing.unipi.it>bicchi at ing.unipi.it)
and Alessandro De Luca
(<mailto:deluca at dis.uniroma1.it>deluca at dis.uniroma1.it)
to be held in conjunction with the
2006 IEEE/RSJ Int. Conf. on Robots and
Intelligent Systems (IROS'06) in Beijing, October
The workshop web page, containing detailed
information and the open call for contributions,
is available at
(this page is also linked from the IROS06 page
This initiative stems from the European
Perspective Research Project
If you are actively doing research in the area of
physical Human-Robot Interaction (pHRI), we
invite you to submit a contribution and
participate to the workshop.
Contributions should be submitted as pdf by email
to Antonio Bicchi or Alessandro De Luca, by
August 1, 2006.
The format is rather free (you can prepare a
manuscript following the IROS conference style),
with a maximum length of 12 pages. Timeliness in
exchanging on-going research results and ideas is
one of the driving factors of workshops.
Therefore, submission of even preliminary or
informal work is encouraged. Also, extended
versions of IROS'06 papers will be considered.
Finally, state-of-the-art surveys in the topical
areas below are welcome.
Topics for contributions include but are not limited to:
· Safety analysis and injury indices in human-robot interaction
· Lightweight robot design for safety
· Antagonistic and other innovative compliant actuation
· Variable impedance actuators
· Sensor fusion for whole-arm supervision
· Fault tolerant robotic systems
· Planning safe and dependable robot motion
· Real-time collision anticipation in human environments
· Collision detection and robot reaction strategies
· Mechanical-control co-design
· Motion control in the presence of variable compliance
· Standards in physical human-robot interaction
We will select by August 15 the best
contributions, based on their quality and
relevance, so as to make this workshop a special
The final material to be distributed as a package
to the workshop participants is due by September
The half-day workshop is scheduled for Tuesday,
October 10, afternoon, at IROS'06.
Please contact us in case you wish further information.
Looking forward to your contribution
