IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication
(RO-MAN 2013)

August 26 - 29, 2013, Gyeongju, Korea       www.ro-man2013.org

Paper submission deadline: Feb. 28 2013



The 22nd IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive
Communication (RO-MAN 2013) 

will be held in Gyeongju, Korea from August 26 to 29, 2013. (www.ro-man2013.


Robots have been generally used in factories but nowadays they tend to
extend application domains into 

our daily lives such as scientific exploration, military battle, search and
rescue, education, entertainment, 

hospital care, home care, etc. These new robot application domains require
close interaction with human 

since robots and human typically share workspace and goals in terms of task
achievement. Therefore, 

Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), the study of interaction between human and
robots, recently became 

a major field of robotics. 


IEEE RO-MAN 2013 will be the best place to discuss and share your ideas and
opinions on HRI. IEEE RO-MAN 2013 

will focus on the up-to-date theories technologies and studies for HRI and
the related issues such as 

artificial intelligence/emotion, human factors, social relationship, haptic
interaction, application and evaluations, etc. 

Especially, Art & Technology issue is newly generated this year as robotics
tends to fuse with art. We truly welcome your papers 

on all aspects of human-robot interactive communication, and expect your
great interest and participation.
