Workshops & Tutorials:         January 15, 2016


This year, the IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human 
Interactive Communication (RO-MAN) for 2016 will be held from August 26 
– 31, 2016 at Columbia University, Teachers College in New York City! 
The conference will highlight productive working partnerships between 
humans and robots by convening the theme of Human-Robot Collaboration 
that includes robotic use in research and design, and the development of 
robots that interact collaboratively with humans, and support 
human-human collaboration.

This coming year is the 25th anniversary of RO-MAN, and the organizing 
committee would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the 
progress that has been made in the robots/robotics field, as well as 
examine how the area of robotics is evolving in the areas of robot 
designs; interfaces and interaction modalities; robot autonomy and 
teleoperation; robot expressiveness; interaction kinesics; 
social/emotional learning and skill acquisition by robots; and design of 
best practices when optimizing for human-robot interaction.

In addition, the conference will explore new, broader definitions of 
robots/robotics, such as, robotic devices that augment human performance 
(both physically and mentally), architecture/platforms for operating 
robots, robots in space, ubiquitous robots, crowdsourcing human-robot 
interaction based on interaction style, virtual robot apps and virtual 
humans for future robot applications in education, robots in healthcare 
services, exoskeleton bionic devices, role of data analytics and robots, 
and implementing sophisticated cognitive mental models in robots.

Full details of the conference and submission types are provided on 

Workshops and Tutorials Proposals (Submission Deadline: January 15, 2016)
Tutorials should target established fields of research by individuals 
who are recognized researchers in that field. Workshops should focus on 
areas of active research, to provide an informal forum for participants 
to exchange developing research results and ideas. We encourage state of 
the art programs that have high levels of interest, impact, creativity 
and innovation to attract a broad audience. Workshops and tutorials that 
focus on academia-industry partnerships and technology transfer of 
robotics research are welcome. The primary criteria for selection are: 
anticipated level of interest, impact, novelty or creativity, and 
technical background of presenters.
