[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Reminder Deadline Nov 20th for 2016 Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Pioneers Workshop

HRI Pioneers Workshop pioneeringhri at gmail.com
Tue Nov 17 16:43:12 PST 2015


We want to remind you that submissions to the 2016 HRI Pioneers Workshop
will be open until Friday 20th (11:59pm PST). The workshop will be held in
Christchurch, New Zealand on Monday, March 7, 2016 in conjunction with the
2016 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction. Pioneers
seeks to foster creativity and collaboration surrounding key challenges in
human-robot interaction and empower students early in their academic
careers. Each year, the workshop brings together a cohort of the world's
top student researchers and provides the opportunity for students to
present and discuss their work with distinguished student peers and senior
scholars in the field.
This is the premiere forum for graduate students in HRI, thus we invite
students at any stage of their academic career to consider applying. To
facilitate attendance, we expect to provide financial support to accepted
students to help mitigate the costs of the workshop and main conference.

*ABOUT*

The eleventh annual Human-Robot Interaction Pioneers Workshop will be held
in Christchurch, New Zealand in conjunction with the 2016 ACM/IEEE
International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction.  We invite students
pursuing a PhD (including Masters students) to consider applying. Each
year, HRI Pioneers brings together a cohort of the world’s top students to
present and discuss their work with distinguished student peers and senior
scholars in the field.  To facilitate attendance, we expect to provide
financial support to most participants that will cover part of the workshop
and main conference costs (travel, registration, and meals).

*SUBMISSION GUIDELINES & REVIEW PROCESS*

Graduate students pursuing a PhD in a field related to human-robot
interaction, should submit

the following materials:

*Extended abstract *– an anonymized two-page description of the applicant’s
past, current,

or proposed work (in IEEE 2-column conference format). In particular, it
should cover:

-       the key research questions/motivation of the applicant’s work,

-       background and related work that informs the research,

-       the research approach and methodology, and

-       results to date (if any) and a description of remaining work.

*CV *– a two-page curriculum vitae of the student.

Further details, including templates, are now available on the workshop
website at http://www.hripioneers.info/hri16. The application process will
open on October 6 and will continue through November 20, 2015 (11:59pm PST).

The HRI Pioneers Workshop will follow a review process in which submissions
will be evaluated by a number of factors including:

-       the quality of the submission (blind review),

-       the expected benefits of the workshop for the student’s PhD
research, and

-       the student’s contribution to the diversity of topics, backgrounds,
and institutions.

We hope to achieve a diversity of research topics, disciplinary
backgrounds, methodological approaches, and home institutions. As such, we
do not expect more than two students to be invited per institution. In
addition, we especially encourage groups traditionally underrepresented in
computer science to apply.

*PUBLICATION & ATTENDANCE*

Accepted abstracts will be published alongside Late-Breaking Reports in the
extended abstracts section of the main HRI conference proceedings, and
archived in the ACM Digital Library. All authors of accepted submissions
are expected to attend the Pioneers Workshop and the main conference poster
session, at which they will present their work as a poster. A detailed
program for the workshop and the participation guidelines for the poster
session will be available after the camera-ready deadline.
