Effective human-robot collaborations in healthcare, education,
manufacturing and disaster relief require the development of computational
methods, models, and protocols for supporting such teamwork. This issue
seeks papers on computational approaches that demonstrably enable safe,
efficient and seamless interaction between humans and robots. Research
areas include physical human-robot interaction, supervisory control, shared
autonomy in teleoperation and brain-machine interaction, and human-robot
mixed-initiative planning and decision-making. Technical approaches include
algorithms and frameworks for communication, learning, planning,
decision-making, and control that enable robots to better collabo-rate with
human partners. Methods and survey papers that demonstrate effectiveness of
computational approaches across multiple research areas, or draw novel
insights and relationships among works are also encouraged.

Paper topics include methods for:

   - Physical and psychological safety in human-robot interaction
   - Human-machine collaboration for assistive, wearable, and
   rehabilitation robotics
   - Communication and coordination in distributed human-robot teams
   - Recognition and prediction of human state
   - Robot motion planning with consideration of human presence and motion
   - Robot task planning with consideration of human activity prediction
   - Robot communication
   - Shared autonomy in human-vehicle interactions
   - Shared autonomy in dexterous manipulation


IJRR requests experimental results, and comparison of results with existing
datasets, the sharing of new datasets, and multimedia content (MM) such as
data, code or videos.

Please note that IJRR has no page limit on papers and is a leader in
archival publishing of data sets, code and videos with papers. For full
guidelines, including the Aims and Scopes of the Journal see:

For Multimedia Guidelines see Section 4.10 of the above url.
