Important Dates:
August 31: Submission deadline (AoE time)
September 5: Notification of acceptance
September 20: Camera-ready paper submission deadline
October 5 (Full-day): Workshop including a demonstration of android

The focus of robotics research is shifting from industrial robots to
robots working in daily situations and one of the most important
issues is to develop autonomous social robots capable to interact with
and live together with humans, i.e., symbiotic robots with humans. The
aim of this workshop is to introduce research activities in “Symbiotic
Human-Robot Interaction,” and discuss the future challenges in this
research area.

One of the goals of this research area is providing communication
support for people, such as companion robots for elderly people who
need psychological support as much as physical support. For this aim,
various humanoids, including android robots, have been studied for a
few decades, and full-scale social implementations are about to begin.

In this workshop, organizers will demonstrate one of our androids, the
world-famous, state-of-the art communication robots and bring you a
brainstorming workshop. We will discuss the future of everyday robots,
key technologies to make them able to be true companions living
together with us.
