*HRI 2016 Call For Papers*

11th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2016)


*Conference*: March 7-10, 2016, Christchurch, New Zealand

*Submission Deadline*: October 2, 2015.


The 11th Annual ACM/IEEE HRI Conference theme is “Natural Interaction.” 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. Full papers and Tutorial/Workshop abstracts will be archived
in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Full details of
the submission types is provided on

*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. For a full description of themes and examples of
prior contributions see

*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 Chairs: Takayuki Kanda (ATR, Japan), Tony Belpaeme (Plymouth Univ.,

*Technical Advances in Human-Robot Interaction* 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: Siddhartha Srinivasa (Carnegie Mellon Univ., USA)

*Human-Robot Interaction Design *involves research related to robot design
from a broad spectrum of design practices, including form, interaction, and
service design.
Theme Chair: Guy Hoffman (IDC Herzliya, Israel)

*Theory and Methods in Human-Robot Interaction* theme includes
contributions that provide novel ways of understanding and studying human
interactions, needs, and environments that will inform the development of
robot technologies, systems, and applications.

Theme Chair: Kerstin Fischer (Univ. of S. Denmark, Denmark)

Authors are encouraged to review the extended call for papers on the
conference website (

information regarding the themes, including theme specific
program-committee, examples of past publications, and evaluation criteria.
