*International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR) 2011*
November 24-25, 2011, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
 <http://www.icsr2011.org/> http://www.icsr2011.org


The International Conference on Social Robotics brings researchers and
practitioners together to report on and discuss the state-of-the-art
research in the field of social robotics. The conference focuses
particularly on social interaction between humans and robots, the
integration of robots into our society, and the design of next generation
social robot interfaces and systems.

The theme of the 2011 conference is "Alive!" It expresses the vitality of
the social robotics research, paying particular attention to the development
of robots that appear increasingly social -- the point that people perceive
them to be alive. The conference aims to foster discussion on the
development of computational models, robotic embodiments, and behavior that
enable robots to act socially and the impact that social robots have on
people and their social and physical environment.


*First Call For Works-In-Progress (WIP)*

The *Works-In-Progress* track welcomes research contributions in early
stages of development. The four-page contributions will be made available to
the attendees of the conference in the conference USB drive, but will not be
archived, thus, allowing authors to maintain the copyright of their work
until full publication. The WIP presentations will be made in the form of
brief talks and optionally as poster presentations.



Submissions must be made in the PDF format and follow the Springer LNCS
style for the layout. Templates for MS Word and LaTeX are available on the
conference website. Late-breaking results are limited to *four* A4 sized
pages. The submission system can be access through
