About the Workshop: 
     An increasing number of control researchers have been putting efforts
in human-robot interaction (HRI). This attention on new intelligent control
methods for HRI is motivated by the benefit of synergizing human
intelligence with collaborative robots to improve the joint human-robot
system performance and reduce manpower and workload. There is a significant
number of civilian and military applications where autonomous robots,
endowed with communication, sensing and actuation capabilities perform tasks
with a human-in-the-loop, to achieve a desired global goal. However, the
model, analysis, and implementation of effective HRI remain largely an open
problem. There is a great demand for verifiable, reliable, and scalable
algorithms to serve HRI systems, where the control systems theory and
engineering can contribute significantly. 
     The workshop aims to present new developments in the modeling and
control of human-robot interaction (HRI), especially methods that enable the
collaboration between humans and robotic systems. This is an
interdisciplinary research area across the controls, robotics, and human
factors communities. We wish to identify the key challenges of robot control
with a human-in-the-loop, to explore the degree to which core elements of
control theory contribute to HRI, and to anticipate the future innovation in
bringing human and autonomous robotic systems together. This workshop aims
at promoting a discussion to identify and define the overarching ideas that
can tie together different research directions in control theory and HRI.
The workshop encourages the participation of young researchers in controls,
robotics, and human factors, and promote the discussion between the speakers
and the audience. 
     This full-day workshop is supported by the IEEE CSS Technical Committee
on Manufacturing, Automation, and Robotic Control.
