The 9th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2017) brings together researchers and practitioners working on the interaction between humans and robots and on the integration of robots into our society.

Robots will improve quality of human life through assistance, enabling for instance independent living or providing support in work-intensive, difficult and possibly complex situations. The conference aims to foster discussion on the development of computational models, robotic embodiments, and behaviour that enable social robots to have an impact on the degree of personalized companionship with humans.
The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in the area of social robotics: innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and improvements, novel applications on the latest fundamental advances in the core technologies that form the backbone of social robotics, distinguished developmental projects, as well as seminal works in aesthetic design, ethics and philosophy, studies on social impact and influence pertaining to social robotics, and its interaction and communication with human beings and its social impact on our society.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

Affective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robots
 Context awareness, expectation, and intention understanding
 Control architectures for social robotics
Human augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robots
 Interaction and collaboration among robots, humans, and environments
 Personal robots for the home
Robot applications in education, entertainment, and gaming
Robot ethics in human society
 Robots that can adapt to different users
Robots to assist the elderly and persons with disabilities
Robots with personality
Safety in robots working in human spaces
Socially assistive robots to improve quality of life
Social acceptance and impact in the society
Socially appealing design methodologies

Submissions must be made in the PDF format and follow the Springer LNCS/LNAI style for the layout. All papers will be refereed by the program committee. Full papers are limited to ten pages. Detailed instructions for paper submission are available on the conference web site. LNCS style templates are available on the Springer LNCS website.
Participants who would like to exhibit their relevant products during the conference site should submit a summary describing the demonstration. Exhibition space will be allocated to those approved by the ICSR 2017 organizing committee.
Participants are invited to hold a half day workshops and/or special sessions on topics relevant to social robotics. Proposals on workshops and special sessions will be considered by the organizing committee.
Social robot designs from practitioners from any discipline, and in any format, and designs, prototypes, performances or demos selected by the organizing committee will be invited for exhibition during the conference.
The Proceedings of the Eight International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2017) will be published by Springer International Publishing as part of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (LNAI). Selected papers will be invited for publication as a Special Issue in the International Journal of Social Robotics (Fall 2018).
