Dear colleagues,
We cordially invite you to participate and contribute in the social
robotics workshop during ERF 2015:

==============================================
"Workshop on Robot's Social Intelligence and Natural Interaction
Capabilities with End User Development" (
http://socialrobotserf.sciencesconf.org/)

at European Robotics Forum (ERF) 2015 <http://www.erf2015.eu/>,
Vienna (Austria)

Date: 11th March 2015
Time: 16:15 - 18:15

================================================

This year the workshop aims to provide a single and unique platform for
discussion on three complementary but important pillars of development of
socially acceptable robots:
 Social Intelligence, Natural Interaction and End User based development.

The workshop will consist of a series of invited talks from different
disciplines, followed by an open panel discussion:
    “Social Robotics, the current challenges and the needs”

(Please find more detail below)

The valuable input from the participants will also be used to produce a
post workshop report, expected to serve and guide for the future activities
on this domain as well as to provide the input to euRobotics.

We look forward to see you all in Vienna at ERF 2015.

Thanks & Regards,
Amit Kumar Pandey

The Idea
-------------
Social Robotics and Human Robot Interaction, being some of the emerging
fields with plenty of potential applications, are getting much attention
both from scientific community and industry. However, there is a great need
to interface and bridge ongoing R&D and Innovation in diverse directions,
to achieve a wider goal of having socially acceptable robots.

This workshop aims to bring together the experts of this multidimensional
and multidisciplinary nature of social robotics. Continuing the success of
preceding individual workshops, this year the workshop aims to provide a
single and unique platform for discussion on three complementary but
important pillars of development of socially acceptable robots: Social
Intelligence, Natural Interaction and End User based development.

The workshop will consist of a series of presentations on these aspects
followed by a joint panel discussion. The presentations will aim to
highlight the statements of interest and need from different stakeholders
of the domain. This will build the ground for panel discussion with experts
from different backgrounds and with active public participation.
