Call for papers for IROS Workshop on Cognitive Neuroscience Robotics (CNR)
November 7th, 2013, Tokyo Big Sight, Japan, in conjunction with the IEEE/RSJ
International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS2013)

*** Extension of paper submission deadline: August 31st, 2013 ***

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