The 3rd International Workshop on Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality for Human-Robot Interaction (VAM-HRI)
Collocated with HRI 2020, Cambridge, UK
Submission Deadline: 1/30/20
Notification of Acceptance: TBA / Before HRI early registration deadline
Workshop: 3/23/20

At VAM-HRI we seek to bring together HRI, Robotics, and AI, researchers working 
on challenges in mixed reality interactions between humans and robots. VAM-HRI 
was held for the first time at HRI 2018, where it served as the first workshop of its 
kind at an academic AI or Robotics conference, and served as a timely call to arms 
to the academic community in response to the growing promise of this emerging field. 
VAM-HRI 2020 is looking to follow on the success of the last two years, and 
welcomes contributions on topics including but not limited to:

-  Novel HRI problems that can benefit from AR/VR/MR
-  Intention communication, explanation of behaviors
-  Robot testing and diagnostics
-  Human-subject experimentation
-  Efficient representations for AR/VR/MR interaction patterns
-  AR/VR/MR language grounding 
-  AR/VR/MR-augmented natural language generation
-  AR/VR/MR-enabled robot control
-  Architectures for AR/VR/MR-based HRI
-  AR/VR/MR for expanding social interactions

VAM-HRI accepts both FULL PAPERS (6-8 page papers presenting novel work) and 
EXTENDED ABSTRACTS (2-4 page papers presenting previous, current, or proposed 

Papers will undergo mutual review; as such, authors of submitted papers
will be expected to provide a small number of reviews for fellow authors.
All accepted papers will be accompanied by talks and/or
poster presentations and will be archived on the workshop website.
