May 30, 2013 : Deadline of Submission for Camera-Ready Final papers


**Paper Submission

*Work-in-Progress Papers for Poster Presentation

Special poster session is prepared to present research results in there 
early stage from both academia and industry. 2 page extended abstract 
should be submitted via PaperPlaza site for the conference.

*Interactive Demonstration Papers

Interactive Demonstration Session is 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. The participating 
groups should submit a video clip showing the interactive demonstration 
as well as the 2 page extended abstract. The 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 the 2 page extended 
abstract and should be submitted via the PaperPlaza submission site for
