--------------------------
Motivations and Objectives
--------------------------

The growing need to automate daily tasks, combined with new robot 
technologies, is driving the development of a new generation of 
human-friendly robots, i.e., safe and dependable machines, operating in 
the close vicinity to humans or directly interacting with them in a wide 
range of domains. The technological shift from classical industrial 
robots, which are safely kept away from humans in cages, to robots, 
which are used in close collaboration with humans, is facing major 
challenges that need to be overcome.

The objective of the workshop is to bring together academic scientists, 
researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their 
experiences and research results on all aspects related to the 
introduction of robots into everyday life. The workshop covers a wide 
range of topics related to human-robot interaction, both physical and 
cognitive, including theories, methodologies, technologies, empirical 
and experimental studies.

--------------

--------------

The list of topics include, but is not limited to:

-fundaments of human-friendly robots
