Special Issue: Towards a framework for Joint Action

International Journal of Social Robotics (IJSR)

*************   Call for papers ************

**** Focus ****

For more than a decade, the field of human-robot interaction has
generated many valuable contributions of interest to the robotics
community at large. The field is vast, going all the way from perception
to decision and action. At the same time, research on human-human joint
action is a topic of intense research in cognitive psychology and
philosophy, providing elements and even offering control architecture
hints to help our understanding of human-human joint action.

This special issue is focused on collecting existing work regarding the
analysis of human-human joint action and how it can be used to develop
future human-robot joint action systems, and on the other hand the most
promising contributions from roboticists to human-robot joint action.

**** Topics ****

Topics of interest include but are not limited to

- joint goal establishment and negotiation
- agents' commitment to joint action
- joint action execution, monitoring, turn-taking and timing management
- skills required for collaborative task achievement
- agents' world modelling and management (incl. theory of mind and
shared knowledge)
- forms of communication during joint goal achievement
- joint goal / joint action description and modelling
- control architectures for joint action
- theory of mind issues related to joint action

If you have any questions regarding whether your work could fit this
special issue call, please do not hesitate to contact us (see
information below).
