Call For Papers, Videos, Tutorials/Workshops 10th ACM/IEEE International
Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2015)
http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2015/
March 1-4, 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 papers on 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. Full papers,
Late Breaking Reports, and Videos will be archived in the ACM Digital
Library and IEEE xPlore. Full details of the submission types is provided on
http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2015/authors/.
 
Important Dates
----------------------
3 October 2014: Submission of full papers and tutorial/workshop proposals
8 December 2014: Submission of late breaking reports, demonstrations, and
videos

Full Papers
----------------------
Full papers are eight camera ready pages, including figures. Accepted full
papers will be published in the conference proceedings and be presented in
an oral session.
 
To facilitate quality interdisciplinary reviewing, authors will be required
to select a theme for their full paper submission. These themes represent
different types of contributions to human-robot interaction and thus involve
different criteria for evaluating what constitutes a significant
contribution to the field. 

Studies of Human-Robot Interaction theme includes naturalistic and
experimental studies of how humans and robots interact in real-world
settings or in experimental scenarios to establish new understanding,
principles, and design recommendations for human-robot interaction. 
Theme Chair: Takayuki Kanda, ATR, Japan

Enabling technologies include contributions that describe new robot systems,
algorithms, and computational methods that enable robots to better
understand, interact with, and collaborate with their users. 
Theme Chair: Nicholas Roy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

Enabling designs theme involves contributions that describe new robot
designs, including new robot morphology, behaviors, or services. 
Theme Chair: Jodi Forlizzi, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

Enabling methods include contributions that describe new techniques and
methods that enable the study, analysis, or construction of human-robot
interactions form. 
Theme Chair: Greg Trafton, Navy Research Laboratory, USA

Enabling knowledge theme describes contributions that provide new
understanding of human interaction, needs, and environments that will inform
the development of new robot technologies, systems, and applications. 
Theme Chair: Manfred Tscheligi, University of Salzburg, Austria

Authors are encouraged to review the extended call for papers on the
conference website (http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2015/) for more
information regarding the themes, including theme specific
program-committee, examples of past publications, and evaluation criteria.

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 as a poster, and will be published in the conference
proceedings, and archived in the ACM Digital Library.
 
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
published in the conference proceedings and archived in the ACM Digital
Library.
 
Tutorials and Workshops
----------------------
We invite you to organize a workshop or tutorial. The HRI 2015 theme
highlights the importance of HRI as a broad, multidisciplinary field. Hence,
we particularly invite workshops and tutorials representing different
technical, behavioral, design, and methodological perspectives.
 
Exhibitions
----------------------
There will be an exhibition, and promoters are encouraged to display
state-of-the-art products and services in all areas of robotics and
human-robot interaction.
