Due to multiple requests, we have extended the submission date for the IJSR Special Issue on Robot Learning from Demonstration by one week, to November 7th.  The remainder of the schedule for author notifications and paper revisions remains unchanged.  

We look forward to your submissions,

Sonia Chernova and Andrea Thomaz

> *Call For Papers for the International Journal of Social Robotics*
> *Special Issue on Robot Learning from Demonstration*
> The International Journal of Social Robotics invites papers for a special
> issue on robot learning from demonstration.
> Research in learning from demonstration seeks to enable robots to learn from
> human instruction, harnessing human expertise to learn tasks and customizing
> behavior to match human preferences. Demonstration learning approaches
> assume little or no robotics knowledge on behalf of the human user, enabling
> a lay human to teach a robot what to do through demonstration instead of by
> programming.
> This special issue will focus on the current advances in the areas of robot
> learning from demonstration and imitation learning, including demonstration
> techniques, policy learning methods, evaluation metrics and impact on
> human-robot interaction.
> Papers are solicited on all areas directly related to these topics,
> including but not limited to:
>   - Learning from human demonstration
>   - Imitation learning
>   - Interaction interfaces for robots learning from humans
>   - Active learning in social settings
>   - Human behavior prediction
>   - Social learning mechanisms
>   - Use of social cues in interactive learning
>   - Models of human and animal imitation learning as applied to robots
> Papers must contain high-quality original contributions and be prepared in
> accordance with IJSR guidelines. Authors who intend to submit a manuscript
> are encouraged to contact the guest editors as soon as possible in order to
> ensure that the planned submission falls within the aims and scope of the
> special issue. All papers will be reviewed following the regular reviewing
> procedure of the Journal.
