Dear colleagues,

due to multiple requests the deadline of the special issue on 
User Profiling and Behavior Adaptation for Human-Robot Interaction
of the Pattern Recognition Letter journal has been extended to 20th of
October 2016.

Important Dates
Submission period – September 1st /October 20th, 2016
First review notification – December 10th, 2016
Revision submission – January 31st, 2017
Second review notification – March 1st, 2017
Final notice of acceptance/rejection – April 1st, 2017

The development of social robots that interact with humans have become 
an important focus of robotics research leading to several research and industrial 
projects been funded. For improved and natural human-robot cooperation, human 
users learn how to interact with the robot but, at the time, the robotic systems should 
adapt to the users. This adaptation requires learning a model of human behavior and 
integrating this model into the decision-making algorithm of the robot. Creating 
robotic systems capable of correctly model and recognize the human behavior and of 
adapting their behaviors to the user is a very critical and open task, especially in the 
domain of assistive robotics and when working with vulnerable user populations.

The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together the works of many experts in this 
multidisciplinary subject, that involves different competences and knowledge, which 
span from machine learning to user profiling and to robot behavior control. The Special 
Issue serves to highlight the advances from a wide-angle perspective on the topic, as 
well as to further stimulate excellent fundamental and applied research on compiling 
the state of the art in this subject. 

Topics of interest
Include, but are not limited to:
- Assistive Robotics
- User Profiling
- Adaptive Behavior
- Activity Recognition
- Intention Recognition
- Multi-sensor fusion
- Ambient Assisted Living
- HRI and Personalization
- Proxemics
- Robot Learning
- Adaptive Planning

Submission instruction
Prospective authors are invited to upload their manuscripts during the submissions period. 
Papers should be prepared by adhering to the PRLetters guidelines. When uploading their 
papers through the online system, Authors should select “SI:UP4HRI” when they reach the 
“Article Type” step in the submission process to make it clear that they are submitting to this SI.

Contributors will be informed that their papers should not have been published previously, 
nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. If the submissions are extended works 
of previously published papers, the original works should be included and a description of 
the changes that have been made should be provided.

Guest editors will make an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all submissions.
