Please apologize the multiple postings.
2010 IEEE International Symposium on Robots and Human Interactive
12th-15th September, 2010
The 19th IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive
will be held in Viareggio, Italy at "Principe di Piemonte" Congress Center.
The theme of the conference is
Thinking and acting together:
cognitive and cooperative interaction between human and robots
Final submission deadline: 16th July, 2010
Submission of demo proposals: 1st August, 2010
Notification of demo acceptance: 8th August, 2010
Early Registration: 31th July, 2010
We have the pleasure to announce that the RO-MAN 2010 Registration is
now open. You are
welcome to register yourself taking advantage of the early registration
and IEEE Membership.
The preliminary program is organized around three days of main
September preceded by a first day dedicated to workshops.
The Scientific Committee has selected about 115 papers spanning
different domains of Human-Robot
communication, from basic algorithms to high level social interaction
of them will be awarded with the IEEE RO-MAN 2010 Award, the Cognitive
Systems Award and
the Kazuo Tanie Award.
Nine special sessions address selected topics in Human-Robot
Communication, among the others
Cognition for Interactive Robots, Brain Engineering and Science,
Re-thinking interaction with robots, Internal Models and Prediction in
Humanoid Robots and
Multimodal Interfaces for Capturing and Transfer of Skills. In many
cases these special sessions
are connected to results from European research projects.
We have three keynote speakers: Erhan Oztop (ATR, Japan), Danica Kragic
and Massimo Bergamasco (SSSA, Italy) that will present their vision of
the research field
during the morning of the three main days.
WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS
On 12th September we have three Workshops and a Tutorial:
- Interactive Service Robots in Specific Applications and Environments -
Design, Systems, Studies, and Evaluation,
organized by Elin Anna Topp (Lund Univeristy) and Helge Huttenrauch
- Haptic Joint Actions by Humans and Robots organized by Dr.
Abderrahmane Kheddar (AIST-CNRS JRL, Japan),
Dr. Etienne Burdet (Imperial College London, UK)
- 5th XVR Workshop organized by Franco Tecchia (Scuola Superiore S.Anna,
Marcello Carrozzino (Scuola Superiore S.Anna, Italy)
- Tutorial by Aldebaran Robotics entitled "Abilities of Nao in
CALL FOR DEMO
With the aim of allowing Symposium attendees to try out the latest and
greatest of your Robot-Human interaction research, the Ro-Man 2010
Symposium strongly encourages demonstrations of novel Human-Robot
interaction devices, software or experiments. Authors of accepted papers
are particularly welcome to apply for demonstration space to support
their presentation. Demonstrations must be free of commercial content.
Demonstrations will be assigned to a specific Demo session within the
conference program and will be on display throughout the full Symposium
duration. To create an engaging atmosphere, Demo presenters are
encouraged to run their demonstrations also during coffee-breaks.
Details about this call are available on the website.
