HRI 2015 CFP

************************************************************************
Call For Papers, Videos, Tutorials/Workshops
10th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2015)
http://humanrobotinteraction.org/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 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 and an Open Letter sent to the HRI Community that describes the changes in the peer-review process for HRI 2015 (http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2015/authors/full-papers/open-letter-to-the-hri-community/)..

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.
