CALL FOR PAPERS - HUMANOIDS 2010 WORKSHOP
Workshop on Humanoid Robots Learning from Human Interaction
http://robot.cmpe.boun.edu.tr/~cmericli/Humanoids2010-HRLHI
Nashville, TN, USA, December 7th, 2010
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Important Dates:
------------------------
* Deadline for submissions: *** October 22nd, 2010 (Extended) ***
* Notification of acceptance: November 5th, 2010
* Final papers due: November 23rd, 2010


Research Topics:
--------------------------------------
Research in interactive learning encompasses many topics, and we
solicit a broad range of contributions in an effort to foster
collaboration between different research areas.  Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
* Imitation learning
* Learning from demonstration
* Developmental psychology
* Teachable agents
* Cognitive models
* Human-robot interaction
* Unimodal and multi-modal media for efficient human-humanoid interaction
* Correspondence problem in human-humanoid learning scenarios
* Caregiver modeling
* Adaptive systems
* Transfer learning
* Sliding autonomy
* Learning performance evaluation

Motivation and Objectives:
--------------------------------------
Empowering everyday users with the ability to customize robot behavior
is vital for broadening the use of robots in human environments.
Interactive policy learning methods, in which the robot obtains some
or all of its training data through interaction with a human, have
gained widespread interest in recent years due to their accessibility
to non-expert users. Endowing machines with human-like learning
capabilities has an advantage of utilizing the natural human teaching
abilities and allows users to teach robots as they would teach other
humans. Furthermore, people have been shown to exhibit implicit
expectations from the humanoid robots in interactive robot learning
setups.


Submissions:
-------------------
We solicit paper submissions, optionally accompanied by a video.
Papers should be up to 6 pages in length, formatted according to IEEE
conference layout outlined here.  Email submissions to:
HRLHI10 at gmail.com.  Please provide a URL for downloading any video
submissions.
