6th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2011)



Full paper submissions for the HRI 2011 Conference is now available through
the PCS Submission System. https://precisionconference.com/~hri

March 6-9, 2011, Lausanne, Switzerland


HRI 2011 is the 6th Annual Conference for basic and applied human-robot
interaction research. Scientists from across the world submit their bestwork
and attend HRI to hear the latest theories, data, and videos from the
world's best HRI researchers. Each year, the HRI conference highlights a
particular area. The theme of HRI 2011 is *Real World HRI*. This theme is
intended to highlight HRI in which basic scientific research is further
tested in real world settings or applied to questions that arise in real
world settings. One central aspect of this type of research, in contrast to
other realms of applied research, is that it is theoretically driven and
feeds back to our theoretical understandings. As such, real world research
fortifies our understanding of people, robots, and interaction between the

HRI is a single-track, highly selective annual international conference that
seeks to showcase the very best interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary
research in human-robot interaction with roots in social psychology,
cognitive science, HCI, human factors, artificial intelligence, robotics,
organizational behavior, anthropology and many more, and we invite broad
