The 1st HRoBa Workshop is in conjunction with IEEE International 
Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering (IEEE 
AIKE 2018)



Submission deadline: *_August 20th, 2018_*

Acceptance notification:***_September 1st, 2018_*


Nowadays, a lot of attention is given by many different research areas 
to the human- centered robotics topic. Despite that robots are becoming 
more and more part of humans’ daily lives in fields such as healthcare, 
entertainment, education, social assistance, physical therapy, and 
others, they are barely seen in the real world and in the service of 
people in need. This is partly due to the high prices of the proposed 
solutions, but also due to a lack of guaranteed, safe behavior or 
non-intrusive solutions. Furthermore, for practical reasons, some of 
these solutions were derived from existing systems that were developed 
for industrial or research settings, which might not be sufficiently 
adapted to human-centered contexts.


This workshop aims at bringing together scientists from different areas 
(human-robot interaction, artificial intelligence and machine learning, 
assistive and rehabilitation robotics, robotic systems design, field 
robotics, wearable robotics, biomedical and clinical domains, etc.) 
which have, as research interest, a deeper understanding of humans to 
propose solutions which:

(i) can be used by robots to safely interact, assist and cooperate with 
humans or

(ii) can help at developing solutions adapted to human needs.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    Physical and social interaction among robots and humans


    Wearable robotics systems for rehabilitation and human augmentation


    Bio-inspired models and controllers


    Learning from demonstrations for Human-Robot Collaboration or
    Human-Human Collaboration


    Autonomy in dynamic and uncertain environments


    Applications and challenges in human-centered robotics (e.g.
    rehabilitation, social

    interaction/therapy, to provide assistance)








Prospective participants are welcome to submit either full papers (6-8 
pages), extended abstracts (4 pages) or posters (2 pages) in the 
conference format (IEEE standard).

The HRoBa'18 Workshopis looking for original ideas and unpublished 
contributions from different areas of robotics and intelligent systems 
describing novel bio-inspired methodologies and drawing on rigorous 
quantitative approaches across (but not limited to) computer science, 
mathematics, engineering, physics, and life sciences. We also welcome 
system design, works in progress, simulations or software solutions, as 
long as they meet the guidelines of the session.

To submit your manuscript (pdf file) please send it by email to 
*_panchea at lix.polytechnique.fr_*and/or 
_*francois.ferland at usherbrooke.ca*_ with the subject “HRoBa submission”.

Accepted papers require that, at least one of the authors to register 
and attend the workshop.
