Human-centered robotics requires a fundamental shift from the traditional robot-in-a-cage model to robots interacting with people in an open environment with applications that include wearable robotics, social robots for home and entertainment, and collaborative manufacturing. Many efforts are underway to guarantee safety and improve performance when such robots operate in human environments, such as improved sensors and actuators and data-based methods for enhanced cognition. This generates numerous opportunities for innovation. At the same time there are substantial challenges before such robots become ubiquitous. In an effort to disseminate current advances of various robotics technologies for human-centered applications, this focused session seeks submissions in relevant areas. Papers should contain both theoretical and practical/experimental results. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

- Design of robots (soft and deformable structures) for human interaction
- Human-robot co-learning
- Modeling and control for human-robot interactions
- Safety of human-robot interactions
- Smart actuators and sensors for effective human-robot interfaces
- Wearable robotics including active robotic prostheses and orthoses
