************************************************************************

The 12th Annual ACM/IEEE HRI Conference theme is “Smart Interaction”,
following Vienna’s “Smart City” initiative.  The conference seeks
contributions from a broad set of perspectives, including technical,
design, methodological, behavioral, and theoretical, that advance
fundamental and applied knowledge and methods in human-robot interaction.

5 December 2016: Submission deadline

23 December 2016: Notification of acceptance

11 January 2017: Final camera-ready versions due

alt.HRI is a venue for radical, unconventional, thought-provoking and
rigorous submissions that have high potential for impact. This year’s
alt.HRI theme is "The Less Positive Side of HRI." Beyond human acceptance,
statistical significance and algorithmic performance lie deeper questions
of positive and negative downstream impacts, and the transformational
impacts that HRI work can have on society. Given possible detrimental
effects, what new methodologies or techniques can be proposed to encourage
awareness and more positive results? We encourage researchers to consider
the bigger picture of their work. Not just “can we do this?” but “should
we?”

Submissions will be rigorously peer-reviewed, in a double-blind fashion, by
a dedicated alt.HRI program committee that will be announced on the HRI
website. Accepted papers will be orally presented in the main program and
will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore Digital Library
along with the main conference papers. Up to eight anonymized and
camera-ready pages (excluding references) are allowed. See the website for
additional information for preparing alt.HRI submissions:

Student Design Competition

------------------------------------

For this year’s 12th Annual HRI Conference, we are reintroducing the
Student Design Competition, last conducted in 2008 in Amsterdam. The
competition has two primary goals:


   1.

   To provide graduate and undergraduate students with a hands-on
   introduction to HRI through a team-based design project.
   2.

   To engage students of diverse backgrounds working in technical,
   art/design, or social science disciplines.


Building upon this year’s conference theme of smart interaction, student
teams will develop interactive robotic objects that enhance any level of
the smart city environment. We encourage teams to identify and focus on a
particular interaction context, develop their own interactive robotic
objects, and create scenarios that illustrate how their robots fit within
the lives of the humans involved. The competition therefore focuses less on
demonstrations of technical proficiency, and more on the design of
compelling interactions that inspire, surprise, and delight.

Late-Breaking Reports

------------------------------------

5 December 2016: Submission deadline

18 December 2016: Mutual Review deadline

30 December 2016: Notification of acceptance

11 January 2017: Final camera-ready deadline

The Late-Breaking Reports (LBR) venue at HRI provides authors with the
opportunity to present cutting-edge and experimental research results to
the community. It is also an excellent opportunity for researchers new to
the field to participate in the conference.

All LBR​ ​submissions will be lightly peer-reviewed​​, and published in
the​ ​companion proceedings of the conference, which will appear in both
the​ ​ACM Digital Library and IEEExplore. ​Authors ​will retain the
copyright​ ​of their work, and can submit it to other venues.  LBRs will
be​ ​presented at a poster session during HRI 2017.

More​ ​details, including submission guidelines​, templates, and mutual
review requirements

can be found​ ​at: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__humanrobotinteraction.org_2017_authors_late-2D&d=DQIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=aIkwJulPnZAYn6MwdBF5VoYI6uW-xlS8q27vpW_W3OE&s=MXj5-jUwCS9Sil4kN1yD0GrnTX6q4fHu8BZbj1vVKGk&e=

Videos

-----------

5 December 2016: Submission deadline

19 December 2016: Notification of acceptance

11 January 2017: Final camera-ready deadline

We invite videos related to all aspects of HRI. The videos must be
self-explanatory for the audience. A peer review process will judge videos
on content, lessons learned, novelty, and entertainment value. Accepted
video abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings and
archived in the ACM Digital Library. See the website for additional
resources and details on how to submit: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__humanrobotinteraction&d=DQIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=aIkwJulPnZAYn6MwdBF5VoYI6uW-xlS8q27vpW_W3OE&s=DKl9-gI2t-WJIE4VBAXnNSQWDKTv5zivlOml_049gwM&e= .
