The 2020HRI Pioneers Workshop 
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.hripioneers.info_hri20_index.html&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=PczkjhgXyfd8fcjVspc8LQ_K5Bp4TsUhdj3CHboB9Bc&s=0gRJLvNScDt8uKu6B8c7v1giR-VYsZyEbyLCG5vSaGQ&e= >, partnered with the2020 
International Conference on Human Robot Interaction (HRI 2020) 
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__humanrobotinteraction.org_2020&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=PczkjhgXyfd8fcjVspc8LQ_K5Bp4TsUhdj3CHboB9Bc&s=WIwN_az6koonwCeBtvJ9CFNOX45Uo-u-xCXAA8xmq-M&e= >,is rapidly approaching and we're 
looking forward to seeing you all there!


The HRI Pioneers workshop has been co-located with the HRI conference 
for 15 years, and connects upcoming researchers in the field with each 
other as well as introduces them to established faculty, industry 
partners, and alumni of the program who are active in the HRI community. 
A major goal of the workshop is to increase diversity in the field by 
actively encouraging those from underrepresented groups to apply, and 
supporting their attendance. This is a highly competitive program (last 
year’s acceptance rate was 32%), and alumni of the program have gone on 
to become chairs for the main conference, head research labs at 
universities around the globe, and have entered industry as leaders in 
the field of HRI.


Each year, HRI Pioneers provides financial assistance for conference 
expenses and travel to applicants to attend the conference through both 
the National Science Foundation and private sponsors. Many students who 
apply could not attend the conference without this support, especially 
those from smaller programs.  This year, we're reaching out again to the 
community!


As a supporter of the academic community, we hope you will be interested 
in helping sponsor the workshop this year or help connect us to others 
within the community that might be interested.  Feel free to reach out 
if you have any questions!


Hope to see you all in March!
