------------------------------------------------------------
GOAL
------------------------------------------------------------
The goal of the symposium is to discuss collaboration between humans and robots in situations which require all to continuously adapt to developing events. Examples are adverse circumstances encountered during emergency responses in various types of search & rescue missions, or security or military deployments. Adaptation needs to reflect changes both in what is to be done by human and robot (the tasks), and in how they are supposed to do so (the roles). It needs to explicitly couple the task-work with the social aspects of team-work for the human-robot team to maintain cohesive, effective operations. What makes this difficult is that humans are performing under stress. And that robots, so far, are far from being well-tuned to the human factor in human-robot collaboration.

------------------------------------------------------------
TOPICS AND INTENDED AUDIENCE
------------------------------------------------------------
The symposium aims to bring together scientists from different research areas with a common interest in "the human factor" in human-robot and multi-robot collaboration in dynamic adverse environments, to answer an emerging issue in cognitive modeling for human-robot teams. Topics that are core to the symposium are the following:

   * Cognitive modelling of human and robot workload in stressing situations
   * Doctrines and strategies for adaptive multi-modal team communication
   * Robust decision making for instant or reciprocal urgencies
   * Attention and cognitive perception of environments and events
   * Joint planning, mixed initiative planning and joint collaboration schedules
   * Situation awareness and robot-operator communication
   * Performance metrics of joints operations
   * Risk and ethical considerations of human-robot collaboration

------------------------------------------------------------
FORMAT
------------------------------------------------------------
The symposium will combine a variety of activities intended to facilitate interaction among participants from different communities and discussion of key challenges in bridging research in human factors, human-robot interaction, collaborative planning, and teamwork modeling. These activities will include, but are not limited to keynote speeches, individual technical presentations, open panel discussions, and breakout discussion sessions focused on developing a roadmap to facilitate crosscutting research in human-robot teaming.

------------------------------------------------------------
PAPER SUBMISSION
------------------------------------------------------------
We solicit papers describing original work, either in-progress or finished. Papers should follow the AAAI formatting, with a page-limit of 6 pages. Proceedings of the symposium will be published by AAAI as a CD, distributed at the symposium.
