Call For Late-Breaking Reports, Demonstrations and Videos
10th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2015)
March 2-5, 2015, Portland, Oregon

The 10th Annual ACM/IEEE HRI Conference theme is “Broadening HRI: Enabling
Technologies, Designs, Methods, and Knowledge.” The conference seeks
contributions from a broad set of perspectives, including technical,
design, methodological, behavioral, and theoretical, that advance
fundamental and applied knowledge and methods in human-robot interaction.
We particularly invite work that “enables” human-robot interaction through
new technical advances, novel robot designs, new guidelines for design, and
advanced methods for understanding and evaluating interaction.

Late-Breaking Reports and abstracts of the accepted demonstrations and
videos will be published in the “extended abstracts” of the conference, a
companion publication to the main proceedings of the conference, which is
also archived in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore. Note that this
has changed from previous years in which LBRs, Demos, and Videos appeared
as part of the main proceedings. Authors of all accepted LBRs, videos, and
demonstrations will retain the copyright for their work.

Full details of the submission types is provided on

Important Dates
8 December 2014: Submission of late breaking reports, demonstrations, and
23 December 2014: Notification of LBRs, demos and videos acceptance
3 January 2015: Final camera-ready versions due

Late Breaking Reports
Authors are encouraged to submit their Late-Breaking Reports in a short
paper format, which is limited to two pages. Accepted Late-Breaking Reports
will be presented at a poster session during HRI 2015. Guidelines for
preparing LBRs can be found at
PLEASE NOTE: There will not be an additional content revision allowed for
the camera-ready stage of the Late-Breaking Reports. Submitted abstracts
will be considered final and ready for inclusion in the “extended
abstracts” proceedings and the ACM Digital Library. Camera-ready versions
are allowed to differ from submitted papers only in the updated copyright
statement including the accepted paper's DOI.

Video Session
We invite videos related to all aspects of HRI. Besides the importance of
the lessons learned and the novelty of the situation, the entertainment
value will be judged. The video must be self-explanatory. The videos will
be archived in the ACM Digital Library and be presented at a video session
during HRI 2015. Authors are encouraged to follow the requirements and
guidelines listed on the conference website (
http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2015/authors/videos/) for video size and
formatting instructions.

We invite demonstration proposals for cutting-edge prototype systems that
make interaction with robots more intuitive, seamless, and pleasant, or
otherwise illustrate some human-robot interaction concept in an exciting
and engaging way. Demos will be accepted on the technical and research
importance of the work, as well as their suitability to a live
demonstration. Please refer to the full guidlines at
