HRI-2013 Workshop on Probabilistic Approaches for Robot Control in HRI

URL: http://robotics.usc.edu/~hri/parc-hri

CONFERENCE: 8th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot
Interaction (HRI-2013)
LOCATION: National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan),
Tokyo, Japan

  * Intent to submit: Sunday, January 6, 2013 (requested, but not required)
  * Submission deadline: Sunday, January 20, 2013
  * Notification: Sunday, January 27, 2013
  * Camera-ready deadline: Sunday, February 3, 2013
  * Workshop: Sunday, March 3, 2013

The objective of this half day workshop is to discuss the application of
probabilistic approaches to further enable robot autonomy in HRI, as well
as address the shortcomings and necessary improvements in current
techniques needed for robust socially intelligent behavior. This workshop
will investigate the use of probabilistic approaches, such as Bayesian
networks and Markov models, for robust robot control and decision-making
under uncertainty. Target applications range from social behavior
primitives—such as gesture, eye gaze, and spacing—to higher-level
interaction planning and management systems.

Under the focus of probabilistic approaches to sociable robot control, the
workshop invites submissions describing original work, either completed or
still in progress, related to one or more of the following topics:
  * Social content and behavior planning
  * Behavior realization and control for sociable robots
  * Models for natural communication dynamics
  * Knowledge-based and data-driven approaches to social behavior
  * Numeric representations of human state
  * Online learning and user adaptation
  * Situatedness within social/environmental contexts
  * Interaction frameworks and architectures for human-robot interaction

The organizers request (but do not require) that prospective authors please
send an intent to submit to hri2013ws.parc at gmail.com prior to submitting a
full contribution; this will help the organizers plan for the review
process. This should include (a) a list of prospective authors, (b) a
tentative submission title, (c) a few sentences about the submission.

Workshop contributions should be submitted via e-mail to
hri2013ws.parc at gmail.com.

If a submission exceeds 10MB, the file should be made available online and
a URL should be provided.

Submitted papers should be 4-6 pages in length in PDF format, and should
conform to the IEEE publication guidelines. For templates and examples,
follow the link:

  * Amin Atrash, University of Southern California (atrash at usc.edu)
  * Ross Mead, University of Southern California (rossmead at usc.edu)
