Call for Papers and Call for Participation:
A 2015 International Workshop on Communication for Humans, Agents, 
Robots, Machines and Sensors (CHARMS), August 17 - 20, 2015, Belfort, 
France (This workshop will be a part of MobiSPC 2015).

Cyber physical systems (CPS) are becoming more involved in the lives of 
humans. All indications point to a future where many varieties of CPS 
and humans co-exist and, at a minimum, must interact consistently 
through life’s tasks. This workshop will explore ideas of the future to 
understand, discern and develop the relationship between humans and CPS 
and the practical nature of software agents to facilitate the integration.

The general interest of this workshop is the research intersection 
between humans, agents, robots and machines and sensors. Specifically, 
how agents can be used in the modeling, design, implementation and 
experimentation of these complex systems. Intersecting humans and CPS 
are agents and multiagent systems tasked to map the interaction, 
communication and networked relationships.

The goals of this workshop are to provide a forum to exchange ideas, 
present results, share experience, and enhance collaborations among 
researchers, practitioners, and developers in numerous areas of 
communicative interfaces between humans, robots and other entities.

Topic of interest:
* Human-centered agents
* Design, modeling and evaluation of CPS
* Security and privacy issues in CPS
* Asistive technology and robots
* Indistinguishability between agent, robots, machines, sensors and humans
* Conversational ubiquitous systems
* Human robot social interaction
* Service robots and agents
* Conversational agents
* Humans and the Internet-of-things (IOT)
* Humanoid assistance and rehabilitation robots
* Wearable computing and wearable robotics
* Wearable companion robots and agents
* Human behavior modeling and activity recognition
* Ubiquitous robots and agent challenges
* Autonomic capabilities and semantic reasoning
* Social awareness
* Human activities monitoring
* Social interaction of CPS

Important Dates:
* Submission Deadline: April 14, 2015
* Author Notification: May 15, 2015
* Final Manuscript: June 10, 2015
