We would like to invite you to organize a workshop or tutorial at the

Interaction (HRI 2017). The HRI Conference is highly selective and
aims to showcase the very best HRI research, which has
interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary roots in robotics, social
psychology, cognitive science, HCI, human factors, artificial
intelligence, engineering, and many other disciplines. Each year, the
HRI conference highlights a particular theme. For HRI 2017, the theme
is "Smart Interaction", following Vienna’s “Smart City” initiative.
