RO-MAN 2017
2nd Workshop on Behavior Adaptation, Interaction and Learning for  
Assistive Robotics ? BAILAR

Date: August 28, 2017
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Website: www.cogrobotics.unina.it

Submission deadline: June 16, 2017
Acceptance notification: July 10, 2017
Camera-ready deadline: July 20, 2017

With robots getting out of the cages, Human-Robot Interaction  
applications effectiveness has not only to rely on the skills of  
trained users but also on the ability of the robot to adapt to the  
users? behaviour and needs as well. In particular, the development of  
personal robots, as assistive technological tools, challenges  
researchers to develop socially intelligent and adaptive robots that  
can collaborate with people.

Personal robots are expected to incrementally learn user preferences  
and to modify and adapt their behaviors accordingly. Indeed, for  
improved and natural human-robot cooperation, human users will learn  
how to interact with the robot but, at the time, the robotic systems  
should adapt to the users. This adaptation requires learning a model  
of human behavior and integrating this model into the decision-making  
algorithm of the robot. Creating robotic systems capable of correctly  
modeling and recognizing the human behavior and of adapting their  
behavior to the user is a very critical task, especially in the domain  
of assistive robotics and when working with vulnerable user populations.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
?	Assistive Robotics
?	HRI and Cognitive Impairments
?	User Profiling
?	Adaptive Behavior
?	Activity Recognition
?	Intention Recognition
?	Multi-sensor fusion
?	Ambient Assisted Living
?	HRI and Personalization
?	Proxemics
?	Robot Learning
?	Adaptive Planning
?	User Experience
?	User-centred Design

To be announced
We are planning to have two different keynote speakers coming from  
different communities.

We welcome prospective participants to submit either full papers (up  
to 6 pages) or extended abstracts (up to 2 pages). Papers can be on  
research that the authors have already conducted, but we especially  
encourage papers on new ideas or research that the authors plan to  
The manuscripts should use the IEEE RO-MAN two-column format. Please  
submit a PDF copy of your manuscript through EasyChair.
Each paper will receive a minimum of two reviews. Accepted papers  
require that at least one of the authors register to the workshop.

The organizers are investigating the availability of journal editors  
in order to invite a selection of accepted papers from the workshop to  
a special issue or post-proceedings volume.
