=======================================================================
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
2011 Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Pioneers Workshop

Held in conjunction with HRI 2011: http://hri2011.net
Location and dates: Lausanne, Switzerland, March 6, 2011
Workshop URL and Program: http://www.hripioneers.org
=======================================================================
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

The 2011 HRI Pioneers Workshop will provide a forum for graduate
students and select postdocs to learn about the current state of HRI,
to present their work and to network with one another and with select
senior researchers in a setting that is less formal and more
interactive than the main conference. Workshop participants will
discuss important issues and open challenges in the field, encouraging
the formation of collaborative relationships across disciplines and
geographic boundaries.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
WORKSHOP FORMAT:

Approximately twenty graduate students and postdocs will be invited to
attend the workshop. The format of the workshop will include several
types of participation: student introductions, student presentations,
a breakout session, group presentations and a poster session.  At the
beginning of the day, all workshop attendees will present an overview
of their work. A select number of participants will each then give a
15-30 minute presentation, enabling them to share their research and
receive feedback from students and senior researchers in an informal
setting. After lunch, all workshop attendees will be given an
opportunity to present their work in a poster session format.
Workshop attendees will also be addressed by a panel of four senior
researchers and will participate in a breakout session.
