ICRA 2017 Full-day Workshop - Human Multi-Robot Systems Interaction 
June 2, 2017 Singapore
We invite participation in the full day workshop on human multi-robot system
interaction at ICRA 2017. 
The objective of this workshop is to present the new developments in human
multi-robot systems (MRS) interaction, which is an interdisciplinary
research area across the robotics, controls, and human factors communities.
We wish to identify the key challenges of MRS systems with
human-in-the-loop, to explore the degree to which core elements of MRS
research (e.g., distributed algorithms, decentralized planning, etc.)
contribute to human-robot interaction (HRI), and to anticipate the future
innovation in bringing human and MRS together. This workshop aims at
promoting a discussion to identify and define the overarching ideas that can
tie together different research direction in MRS and HRI, and lead to the
definition of common practices and standards.
A constantly increasing community of researchers has been putting great
effort in human-robot interaction (HRI). More recently, the interest in
human multi-robot systems (MRS) interaction is motivated by the benefit of
synergizing human intelligence with a team of cooperating robots to improve
the joint human-robot system performance and reduce manpower and workload.
Researchers interested in HRI and MRS represent an inherently diverse
community, since several competences are needed in this field, ranging from
control systems to human factors, which include control, mechanical design,
estimation, perception, planning, interaction, ergonomics, and psychology,
just to list a few. While this fact could represent an incredible richness
for human multi-robot systems interaction, perhaps instead it hinders the
internal dialogue among researchers across different disciplinary and thus
represents an obstacle for the constitution and development of a united
field of research like other fields in robotics. The main objective of this
workshop is therefore to present the new cross-disciplinary developments in
human multi-robot systems (MRS) interaction. We seek to identify the key
challenges, framework, core elements of MRS systems with human-in-the-loop.
Toward this aim we will host a selection of invited keynote speakers that
cover many different spirits among the HRI and multi-robot communities. We
will ask them to give a historical perspective on their research, a current
state-of-the-art, and insights on future trends and research challenges.
