*Call for papers*

Human-robot interaction and collaboration is a quickly growing research 
area with enormous potential applications in various industries, 
assistive technologies and human life. The need for human-machine 
interaction is fundamental to almost all robotic system applications, 
from operator control of large robot fleets, through intervention in 
search and rescue robotics, to use of robots in aged care and domestic 
settings. Together human and machine must cooperatively achieve a task, 
requiring a joint understanding of abilities and intent, and safe joint 
management of task execution.

This symposium aims to explore recent advances and bring together 
leading researchers and practitioners in human-robot interaction and 
collaboration. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

   * Multi-robot task allocation and motion coordination by means of HRI
   * Multi-modal human-robot communication and fusion of modalities
   * Interpretation of human-robot communication in the context of a
     robotic task
   * Modelling of beliefs, desires and intentions in human-robot
   * Haptic/tactile rendering in human-robot interaction
   * Computational linguistics for human-robot interaction
   * Social learning and human-robot interaction
   * Long-term human-robot interaction
   * Human-robot interaction modelling
   * Human-robot interaction observation and analysis
   * Experimental studies on human-robot interaction
   * Human-interactive machines
   * Individual/group human-robot interaction
