Dear Colleagues,

Robotics is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Love and Sex
with Robots". Dr. Chamari Edirisinghe, Prof. Adrian David Cheok and Dr.
David Levy are serving as Guest Editors for this issue. We think you
could make an excellent contribution based on your expertise.

Since more and more robots are being developed with the ability to
perform tasks independent of assistance, the perception of them as “mere
machines” is being re-evaluated. Research and development all over the
world is rapidly experimenting and commercializing robots that perform
everyday services. The major challenge for humans will be how to deal
with the close proximity of social robots and the juxtaposition of new
interactions. Social robots will play major roles in care giving,
education, information and communication, etc., and when social robots
are created with faultless physical dexterity and social skills, humans
will naturally create new relationships with them. These connections
will be diverse, and will compel society to redefine the prevailing
definitions of human relations and bonds...

The submission deadline is 15 June 2018. You may send your manuscript
now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under
consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to
send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in
advance (robotics at mdpi.com).

Since Volume 6, all published papers will be added in Scopus. The
journal is also indexed in Web of Sciences (Thomson Reuters), as part of
the ESCI database.

Robotics is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by
readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as
indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors
and their institutes. An Article Processing Charge (APC) of CHF 350
currently applies to all accepted papers. You may be entitled to a
discount if you have previously received a discount code or if your
institute is participating in the MDPI Institutional Open Access Program
(IOAP), for more information see: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.mdpi.com_about_ioap&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=cXlhTbxZHceaG1RZAeJaPZX6QcAKndxbTRciFCa5AZY&s=rZM1kvMjN28ol6Y8m8kXDpVAqqnTwXoX_IW78g58IqE&e=.
