IROS-2017 Workshop

Human-Robot Interaction in Collaborative Manufacturing Environments

September 24, 2017 -- Vancouver, BC, Canada



* Paper submission deadline (EXTENDED): August 11, 2017 @ 11:59pm PT (UTC-7)

* Acceptance notifications: September 1, 2017

* Camera-ready deadline: September 8, 2017

* Workshop: September 24, 2017


The objective of this workshop is to discuss the design, development, and
deployment of hardware/software systems for the recognition (from humans)
and generation (by the robot) of social behaviors that enable robots to be
more effective co-workers with their human counterparts in real-world
collaborative manufacturing environments. A strong emphasis will be put on
systems that support bidirectional communication between humans and robots
for closed-loop operations in human-robot collaborative scenarios. This
workshop will bring together academic researchers and industry partners to
frame problems and solutions in real-world contexts.


- Multimodal human-robot interaction for collaboration

- Verbal, nonverbal, and co-verbal human-robot interaction for collaboration

- Bidirectional gestural communication (e.g., emblematic, iconic, deictic,

- Human-robot proxemics

- Explicit, implicit, and back-channel feedback cues

- Manufacturing use cases

- Safety standards for collaborative human-robot interaction

- … and more!


- FULL PAPERS (5-6 pages): highlight state-of-the-art research framing
industrial automation as a collaborative HRI problem

- SHORT PAPERS (1-2 pages): outline new or controversial views, or describe
ongoing work in collaborative HRI in manufacturing settings


All papers must be written in English and submitted electronically as a US
letter-sized (8.5” x 11”) PDF format of length no more or less than the
page limit of the corresponding submission type.

All accepted full and short papers will be presented orally and published
online on the workshop website. Authors will be notified as to whether they
have been assigned a “full-length” or “lightning” presentation slot.
Authors assigned to lightning talks will be invited to participate in a
poster session.


- Prof. Julie Shah, MIT

- Prof. Clément Gosselin, Laval University


- PRESENTATIONS: Full length and “lightning” oral presentations of accepted
full and short papers. Presenters of lightning research talks will be
invited to participate in a poster session.

- SPEAKERS: Invited talks will give different perspectives on the
intersection of human-robot interaction and industrial automation.
Moderated discussions will allow participants to engage in collaborative
public discussion on controversial topics and issues of interest to the
workshop audience.

- BREAKOUT SESSIONS: Participants will gather into small groups to discuss
topics related to technical, societal, legal, and ethical considerations
for collaborative HRI in manufacturing settings, and present the results of
their discussion to the workshop audience.

- NETWORKING: A large part of this effort is to bring together a community
of researchers, strengthen old connections, and build new ones. Ample time
will be provided for networking and informal discussions.
