*Important Dates*

Acceptance Notification: Friday, July 14
Final Draft Due: Friday, July 28
Workshop Date: Monday August 28

With more robots entering our lives, many interactions will include
multiple robots and/or multiple humans – yet most human-robot interaction
(HRI) research still focuses on a single human interacting with a single
robot. Studies in social psychology and HRI indicate that inter-group
interaction varies crucially from inter-individual interaction (e.g.,
increases intergroup competition, introduces variables of groups not
present in dyadic interaction). This workshop brings together researchers
and practitioners concerned with how the presence of groups will affect
HRI. *The workshop has special emphasis on workshopping papers and creating
a forum for brainstorming about and improving authors’ current and future
works.* The end goal is to inform robot design, including the development
of appropriate interaction frameworks and modalities, robot appearance and
autonomous capabilities, and functions of robot groups in human

*Guidelines for Position Papers*
Papers should be 4-6 pages (including citations). Papers can be on research
that the authors have already conducted, or on research in progress. We
especially encourage papers on new ideas or research that the authors plan
to conduct; feedback can be given during coffee breaks or during
discussions. Paper format should be according to the RO-MAN 2017 paper
guidelines (IEEE format). The submission should include a cover page with
the authors’ names, affiliation address, email addresses, and phone
numbers. The corresponding author should be clearly indicated. The cover
page should also include up to 6 keywords. Each paper will receive a
minimum of two reviews. *Submissions should be in PDF format via email to
robots.in.groups2017 at gmail.com <robots.in.groups2017 at gmail.com>.* Accepted
papers will be available on the conference website. Papers will be selected
based on reviewer comments for oral and/or poster presentation at the
workshop. Accepted papers will require that at least one author registers
for and attends the workshop.
