** Call for Papers

Gyeongju, Korea
August 26-29, 2013

** Important Dates

February 28, 2013: Deadline for submission of regular papers
March 31, 2013: Deadline for submission of interactive demonstrations or video
April 25, 2013: Notification of paper acceptance
May 30, 2013: Deadline for submission of camera-ready final papers

** Paper Submission

* Regular Papers

Authors should submit their papers electronically using the template via
PaperPlaza. For the first submission, a manuscript can be 6-8 pages. For the
final submission, a manuscript should be 6 pages, with 2 additional pages
allowed but at an extra charge. Detailed instructions for paper submission
using PaperPlaza will be available on the conference website.

* Interactive Demonstration Papers

Interactive demonstration sessions are designed to foster practical research
into novel human-robot interaction technology. Groups that are interested in
demonstrating their novel ideas and results with real robots or artifacts are
encouraged to participate. Participating groups should submit a video clip
showing the interactive demonstration as well as a 2-page extended abstract.
Accepted contributors have to interactively demonstrate their results on site.

* Video Papers

Videos illustrating new and exciting results are sought for dedicated video
sessions. Videos should be accompanied by a 2-page extended abstract and should
be submitted via the PaperPlaza submission site for the conference.
