WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:


The 2016 Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) for Small and Personal Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) Workshop, which will be held in conjunction with the 2016 Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS) Conference, will be an exploratory venue bringing together those who work in teleoperation, navigation, and social interactions across both academia and industry to discuss the future of the field and develop recommendations for future work. This workshop will be a cohort of the world's top small UAV researchers and practitioners that seeks to foster creativity, communication, and collaboration across the incredibly diverse field of current research and development as it relates to human interaction with UAVs. Workshop participants are selected on the basis of applications that include a statement of current or proposed research.


Occurring two days before the main conference begins, HRI for UAV attendees will present and discuss their individual work and goals with peers and scholars all fields contributing to the field (basic robotics research, field robotics, teleoperation for UAVs, social UAV interactions, etc.). The workshop is also pleased to announce that Julie Adams (Vanderbilt University) will deliver a keynote lecture in the session. In the late afternoon, a discussion will provide experiential insight into the current and future practice of human-robot interaction for UAS. Other post-workshop activities around Ann Arbor are also planned.


Interested researchers at any stage of their academic career should consider applying. Applications consist of a two- to four-page extended abstract describing the applicant's past, current, or proposed work in small and personal UAVs (position papers are welcome). The application process will be open on April 23 and will continue through May 9, 2016. The HRI for UAV Organizing Committee and the Program Committee will review applications. Further details, including templates, are now available on the workshop website at www.midwestrobotics.org/rss2016.
