Dear all,

We would like to invite you to organize a Workshop or Tutorial at
Human-Robot Interaction (HRI2011) conference. Tutorials and workshops will
be held on March 6, one day before the main technical sessions.
Participants in tutorials and workshops are required to register for the
main conference as well.

Submission instructions for organizers follow below. All tutorial/workshop
proposals must be submitted by September 22th 2010. The proposals submitted
will be subjected to a review process.

We invite experts in different areas to propose half-day or full-day
tutorials relevant to the HRI2011 theme. Examples of topics are
state-of-the-art overviews of particular HRI areas or design/research
methods. Interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome. Please
submit the following information (up to 2 pages) to the tutorial/workshop
Adriana Tapus (email:  adriana.tapus at ensta-paristech.fr) and Kerstin
Dautenhahn (email: k.dautenhahn at herts.ac.uk), no later than September 22th

. Title of tutorial
. Tutorial speaker(s), including short CV's
. Motivation or background
. Target audience or prerequisites
. Overview of tutorial including topics covered
. Links and references relevant to the tutorial

If the tutorial is accepted, the submitted material will be used for
advertising it as part of HRI2011.

Workshops are an opportunity for participants to meet other members of the
HRI community, to discuss problems, and to present their ideas around a
common topic. The workshops can be half-day or full-day, and could cover any
topic relevant to HRI research, development, or education. Interdisciplinary
and user-centered approaches are particularly welcome. The format of the
workshop may vary depending on the topic and audience. The responsibilities
of workshop organizers include: (1) setting up a website for the workshop
that will be linked to the HRI2011 website; (2) publicizing the workshop and
soliciting position papers among potential participants. A position paper
outlines the submitter's view on the workshop theme and the reasons for the
submitter's interest in the topic. The workshop organizers will select
workshop participants based on the quality of submitted contributions; (3)
(when applicable) putting together proceedings of the workshop consisting of
accepted contributions and other relevant materials.

Please send your workshop proposal in the following form to Adriana Tapus
