ECCE 2017 Workshop on Robots in Contexts: Human-Robot Interaction as Physically and Socially Embedded
September 19, 2017, Umeå, Sweden (ecce2017.eace.net<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ecce2017.eace.net_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=G8VvJxpoMd0HWMiqkEcMLL-oHh4hbj-o0cht9q14Cxc&s=kxnT9tj2O3d9HDlfaFcHcyo6NGeQJmZWbQb-wj5yHmg&e= >)

Robotic technologies are being increasingly integrated into real life settings. The adoption of robots by the society is transcending the initial fascination with novel technology and is gradually entering a new phase, characterized by a massive impact of the technology on various aspects of our everyday lives. These developments emphasize the need to better understand how robotic technologies shape, and are being shaped by, the physical and social contexts in which they are used. The aim of the proposed workshop is to explore possible ways of addressing this issue by bringing together a group of human-robot interaction (HRI) researchers within the ECCE context in order to reflect on a range of methods, concepts, and design approaches that could help understand, anticipate, and deal with HRI challenges associated with the upcoming “robotic revolution”.

This one-day workshop will be held as part of ECCE 2017 (the European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics, Umeå, Sweden, September 20-22, 2017, ecce2017.eace.net<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ecce2017.eace.net_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=G8VvJxpoMd0HWMiqkEcMLL-oHh4hbj-o0cht9q14Cxc&s=kxnT9tj2O3d9HDlfaFcHcyo6NGeQJmZWbQb-wj5yHmg&e= >)

The authors of the accepted papers will be invited to submit extended papers to the Special Issue on Robots in Context (www.degruyter.com/page/1540<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.degruyter.com_page_1540&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=G8VvJxpoMd0HWMiqkEcMLL-oHh4hbj-o0cht9q14Cxc&s=DbbrLQi9nV6mFz1UObiMezApLEfj-An5aSaJ_TtioUo&e= >)

THEME AND AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP
Robotic technologies are being increasingly integrated into real life settings. The adoption of robots by the society is transcending the initial fascination with novel technology and is gradually entering a new phase, characterized by a massive impact of the technology on various aspects of our everyday lives. These developments emphasize the need to better understand how robotic technologies shape, and are being shaped by, the physical and social contexts in which they are used. The aim of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in analysis, design, and evaluation of physically and socially embedded human-robot interaction (HRI) and, in the context of ECCE, identify key relevant issues and collectively explore a range of methods, concepts, and design approaches that could help address such issues. The topics of discussions include (but not limited to):

  *   spacing and orientation,
  *   agency,
  *   activity awareness and accountability,
  *   robot and human identities,
  *   responsibility, rights, and ownership,
  *   power differences,
  *   action capabilities and affordances,
  *   human-robot collaboration,
  *   perceptions and identities,
  *   social etiquette,
  *   social interaction,
  *   ecosystems of interconnected smart objects.

IMPORTANT DATES:
- Submission by: July 31, 2017
- Notification of Acceptance: August 18, 2017
- Workshop: September 19, 2017 (the day before the main conference)
