International Workshop on Collaborative Robots and Human Robot Interaction (CR-HRI 2014)
As part of The 2014 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2014)
May 19-23, 2014 
The Commons Hotel
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA


Applications of and research on robotic technologies are growing in both civilian and military contexts,
including small unmanned ground sensors, socially assistive and companion robots, and multi-ton
unmanned vehicles.  In the near  future, we anticipate that robots  will be increasingly employed in
collaborative interaction with humans and other robots, working together to achieve common goals.  The
study, design, and implementation of interaction among collaborative robots as well as between robots
and their human operators is critical to the successful employment of robots, and, therefore, needs
careful examination and further research.

This workshop on collaborative robots and human-robot interactions - to be held as part of the 2014
International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems -
will focus on the areas of human-robot interaction and human-robot collaborative technologies.
We invite original contributions from researchers in academia, research laboratories, and the computer industry on these emerging and
important areas of information technology.  Our goals are to provide a dedicated refereed workshop that
fosters closer interaction among researchers from multiple relevant disciplines, including robotics,
human-robot interaction, design, cognitive science, psychology, computer science, anthropology,
human-computer interaction, as well as user communities, and to provide a forum in which they can exchange
their findings and ideas.
