> Portland, Oregon, USA

> *Organizers: *
>
> *Hagen Lehmann*, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, iCub Facility, Genoa,
> Italy
>
>
>
> *Luisa Damiano*, Research Centre on Complex Systems, University of
> Bergamo, Bergamo, Italy

> *Objectives:*
>
>
>
> This workshop intends to bring together researchers investigating one or
> more aspects of behavior coordination in three different research domains:
> *human-human* interaction, *human-animal* interaction, *human-robot*
> interaction.
>
> Our goal is to develop an interdisciplinary dialogue directed towards
> cross-fertilization between these fields, and to stimulate front line
> research engaged in (a) deepening the scientific understanding of the
> natural mechanisms underlying behavioral coordination through their robotic
> modeling; (b) facilitating and enhancing human-robot cooperation on the
> basis of the implementation of these mechanisms in human-robot interaction.
>
> The workshop aims at involving in this bi-directional transmission of
> knowledge between the domain of the ‘natural’ and the domain of the
> ‘artificial’ all the disciplines included in the traditional and in the
> synthetic study of behavior coordination: cognitive sciences, developmental
> psychology, developmental anthropology, developmental robotics,
> primatology, the sciences and the epistemology of self-organization, the
> sciences and the epistemology of complex systems, social robotics, HRI, etc.
>
> The interdisciplinary discussion on behavior coordination that will take
> place during the workshop will focus on dyadic behavior, conceived as the
> basic systemic unit of coordinated behavior, and on some of the key
> mechanisms for effective coordination currently under exploration, such as
> joint attention, action observation, task-sharing, action coordination,
> perception of agency, motor synchronization.
>
> Some of the questions on which the forum will focus are:
>
> ·      What are the differences and similarities between human-human and
> human-animal behavior coordination?
>
> ·      What are the underlying mechanisms for behavior coordination?
>
> ·      Which aspects of behavior coordination influence human social
> perception?
>
> ·      How can aspects of natural behavior coordination be productively
> used to facilitate naturalistic Human-Robot Interaction?
>
>
>
> The workshop is directed not only to researchers studying behavior
> coordination, but also to specialists from other fields who want to learn
> more about trans-species and technology behavior coordination.
>
>
>
> *Submissions:*
>
>
>
> We accept submissions in the form of extended abstracts (1000 words
> including references) and short position papers (2000 words including
> references).
>
> Extended abstracts will be presented in 15 minutes talks plus questions,
> position papers will be presented in 25 minutes talks plus questions.
>
> Depending on the number of submissions we will also consider to have
> poster presentations of selected abstracts.
>
> All abstracts and papers will be peer reviewed in order to ensure that the
> work is original, high quality, and relevant to the purposes of the
> workshop. All submissions will be collected and made available to the
> public online. Please use the main conference’s MS Words or LaTeX2e
> templates (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates)
> for your submission.
>
>
>
> We are looking in particular for papers focusing on:
>
> ·      Original investigations on behavior coordination between
> human-human and human-animal interaction and their implications for HRI;
>
> ·      Original investigations on behavior coordination between animals
> and their implications for social technology development;
>
> ·      New paradigms of behavior coordination and their implications for
> the different fields involved;
>
> ·      Original applications of mechanisms of behavior coordination in
> HRI.
>
> *HOW TO SUBMIT:*
>
> *Please send your abstracts and short papers to:*
>
