Over the last decade the idea that robots could become an integral part of groups and teams has developed from a promising vision into a reality. Robots are increasingly part of groups and teams, yet most human-robot interaction research still focuses on a single human interacting with a single robot. The goal for the workshop is therefore to advance research in computer supported cooperative work (CSCW) and human robot interaction (HRI) by raising awareness for the social and technical challenges that surround the placement of robots within work-groups and teams. The workshop will be organized around three central questions: (1) How do robots shape the dynamics of groups and teams in existing settings? (2) How does a robot’s behavior shape how humans interact with each other in dyads and in larger groups and teams? (3) How can robots improve the performance of work groups and teams by acting on social processes? Through presentations centered around these core questions we expect in depth discussions around each question and, ultimately, to improve the quality of and support the growth of research in the CSCW community that focuses on the intersection of robots and groups and teams.
