Call For Video Submissions
Human Robot Interaction Caught On Film
The Human Robot Interaction 2008 conference will host a video session, in
which movies of interesting, important, illustrative, or humorous HRI
research moments will be shown. We invite videos related to all aspects of
human-robot interaction. Robots and humans do not always behave as expected
and the results can be entertaining and even enlightening - therefore
instances of failures will also be considered. We invite all researchers in
the HRI area to share their best videos that may have been taken
accidentally or intentionally.
A panel of your peers will review video submissions, but will not follow a
strict peer review procedure. Besides the importance of the lessons learned
and the novelty of the situation, the entertainment value will be judged.
The video session has the character of a design competition.
Each video must be accompanied by a 200-word abstract that describes the
video. The video itself must be self-explanatory for the HRI-2008 conference
audience. The use of voice-over, subtitles or introduction slides is
recommended to prepare the audience for the video.
The selected videos will be published in the conference proceedings (CD-ROM)
and in the ACM digital library. The authors of the selected videos should
plan to attend the conference and will be given a moment to explain the
The video material should be of the highest available quality. The video
should preferably not be scaled down or compressed. The preferred video
format (codec) is standard DV in either the PAL or the NTSC standard. The
video container may be AVI or Quicktime. The maximum length is 3 minutes.
The length of the credits at the end is limited to three seconds.
Upload the videos to the FTP server at ftp://home.bartneck.de. The login is
"hri2008" and the password "Videosaregreat1". Upload them to the directory
"incoming". The filename should correspond to the name of the author, such
as JohnDoe.avi. Alternatively, the author can put a video on a web site and
submit the video's URL to christoph at bartneck.de.
The contact details for all authors, the abstract, the movie's title, a
representative screenshot, and the filename of the submission must be
submitted throught the conference submission system
(http://www.precisionconference.com/~hri). The screenshot should show a key
scene of the movie and it should not contain text, such as in the credits or
the opening title. The screenshot will be used for the edited paper.
The deadline for submission is September 10th, 2008. The notice of
acceptance will be send by December 7th, 2008. Upon acceptance, the authors
will have to submit an ACM release form. Authors' do not need to assign the
copyright to ACM. In addition, the authors must have obtained permission of
every relevant person in the movie for showing the video at the conference
and for distributing the movie in the proceedings and in the ACM digital
library. Alternatively, the people in the movie may be rendered anonymous by
visual effects, such as blurring.
