1st International Conference
on Human-Robot Personal Relationships

Maastricht University, The Netherlands

June 12-13, 2008


Announcement
Call for papers

Within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction and
Human-Robot Interaction, the past few years have
witnessed a strong upsurge of interest in the more
personal aspects of human relationships with these
artificial partners. Nowhere has this strength of
interest been more apparent than at Maastricht
University, where the defence of a recent PhD thesis,
“Intimate Relationships with Artificial Partners”,
attracted wide media publicity on an unprecedented
scale; therefore, Maastricht University is organizing
and hosting the 1st International Conference on
Human-Robot Personal Relationships, during the period
June 12-13 2008. 

Conference sessions are planned on the following
topics: 
•	Robot Emotions 
•	Robot Personalities
•	Gender Approaches
•	Affective Approaches
•	Psychological Approaches
•	Sociological Approaches
•	Roboethics
•	Philosophical Approaches

We welcome contributions in the form of an extended
abstract and/or paper.

 
Please note that the conference web site is now
live at:
