The International Conference on Social Robotics is a conference for
scientists, researchers, and practitioners to report and discuss the latest
progress of their forefront research and findings in social robotics, as
well as interactions with human beings and integration into our society. The
inaugural conference was held in Incheon, Korea under the FIRA Robo- World
Congress 2009; and this year, the beautiful city garden of Singapore is
proud to be the host for ICSR 2010.

The conference welcomes original, peer reviewed papers and contributions
describing technically rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in
social robots, and their interactions and communications with humans,
especially innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and improvements,
as well as novel applications on the latest fundamental advances in the core
technologies that form the backbone of social robotics, distinguished
developmental projects, as well as seminal works in aesthetic design, ethics
and philosophy, studies on social impact and influence pertaining to social
robotics, and its interaction and communication with human being and its
social impact on our society.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

- Affective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robots
- Context awareness, expectation and intention understanding
- Design philosophies and socially appealing design methodologies
- Biomechatronics, neuro-robotics, and biomedical robotics
- Human factors and ergonomics in human-robot interactions
- Intelligent control and artificial intelligence for social robotics
- Knowledge representation, information acquisition, and decision making
- Learning, adaptation and evolution of intelligence
- Interaction and collaboration between robots, humans and environments
- Multimodal sensor fusion and communication
- Robot-ethics in human society; Interactive robotic arts
- Social acceptance and impact in the society
- Compliance, safety and compatibility in the design of social robots
''living'' with humans
- Software architecture and development tools
- Human-robot interaction and robot-robot interaction
- Models of human and animal social behavior as applied to robots
- Applications in education, entertainment and gaming
- Applications in health care and aged care

Submission of Papers:

Authors are invited to submit the complete manuscripts in PDF format.
Submissions should be as per the LaTex or Word templates. Manuscripts are
limited to
ten(10) A4 size papers. The front page must contain the title of the paper,
full name(s) and address(es) of the author(s) and the appropriate academic
All papers will be refereed by the program committee.
Conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag. Selected papers
