Call for papers for
IROS Workshop on Cognitive Neuroscience Robotics (CNR)
September 25th, 2011, San Francisco, California, in conjunction with the
IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS)

Abstract
--------------
While traditional technologies have made our society convenient, their
effects on our cognitive functions have been disregarded. In order to
reveal their effects and to establish a new design principle for safe
and adaptable Information and Robot Technology (IRT) systems, the
organizers have promoted the global center of excellence (GCOE) project
supported by Japanese government, in which world-famous research groups
in robotics, cognitive science, and brain science, working at Osaka
University and ATR in Japan, are highly-integrated to establish an
interdisciplinary research area called Human-friendly Robotics Based on
Cognitive Neuroscience (Cognitive Neuroscience Robotics).
In this workshop, starting from the keynote talk by Prof. Hiroshi
Ishiguro who is the leader of the GCOE, some members and international
collaborators of the GCOE will give their talks about the most-advanced
studies mainly on the fields of human-robot interaction (HRI), cognitive
science, brain science, and the interdisciplinary area. Based on the
talks, we will discuss the way to integrate these research fields for
the establishment of a novel research area of human friendly IRT system.

Topics
------
Topics of interest include:
Human-Robot Interaction (HRI)
Assistive system
Brain science
Neuroscience
Brain-Machine Interface (BMI)
Cognitive psychology
Cognitive developmental robotics
