The objectives of this workshop are to:

   1. Create a forum to brainstorm and discuss aspects of intergroup
   interaction, teamwork, and multi-agent systems that are particularly
   relevant in HRI
   2. Provide an opportunity for authors to receive detailed feedback on
   works in progress that relate to groups in HRI
   3. Brainstorm critical directions to take research and robot design in
   group HRI
   4. Share knowledge and ideas of how to build and program robots for
   intergroup interaction
   5. Encourage discussion about questions such as, “when are robots
   considered a group or grouped together,” “are robots, by definition of not
   being human, an outgroup to humans?” “how to coordinate robots (e.g., by

*Intended Audience*
Because this topic broadly affects people who will work with or live near
robots, we invite people from all domains, from practitioners to
researchers to designers of HRI and robots. We especially invite scholars
of various backgrounds (e.g., social psychology, sociology, swarm robotics,
human-robot teaming) to share their diverse perspectives on intergroup
relationship and interaction.

*List of topics*

   - Intergroup interactions in HRI
   - Teamwork in HRI
   - Multiple robots interacting with one or more humans
   - Multiple humans interacting with one or more robots
   - Programming coordination of swarms or groups of robots
   - Ethical implications of robot groups
