Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate in the 1st Workshop on Mental Models of Robots, to be held at HRI 2020 in Cambridge, UK on March 23rd.

The workshop website can be found through this link: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__mmhri.github.io_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rStC00sfV_qVWqlcnmGhKrRoTMim5rLso-FTzVW2NfNyo&m=PYQwOiBRHcjriZfkeLa2BYufetcJdz6lTxch5BDmjwI&s=J43mkPB_dZD53Wh25VpEGvkh6fH7_C418WKeKEk5ZKE&e= 

We are soliciting 2-page extended abstracts to be presented in short talks at the workshop. Some suggested topics are below. The submission deadline is January 15th, 2020. Please contact Matt Rueben at mrueben at usc.edu<mailto:mrueben at usc.edu> with questions about the workshop topic, scope, or anything else.

  *   Estimating user mental models
  *   Shared mental models
  *   Cognitive modeling / architectures
  *   Communicating intent
  *   Communicating learned policies
  *   Designing expressive robot actions
  *   Generating dialogue to influence mental model development
  *   Other communication modalities (e.g., haptics, GUIs, sounds, VR/AR)
  *   Interaction design for influencing mental models
  *   Transparency, explainability, legibility, or predictability
  *   Users' perceptions of robot actions or mental states
  *   Evaluation of robot systems in terms of mental models
  *   Legal, ethical and societal issues related to mental models held by different people (e.g., users, designers, engineers, consumers, marketers, policymakers)

Applicants with a background in human-computer interaction, natural language processing, design, human factors, psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, and any other related disciplines are welcome to apply. We especially encourage submissions from researchers and practitioners contributing theories, methods and applications that are only sparsely used in the HRI community such as human factors, gaming, and employee education for working with industrial robots.

Organizing committee:

  *   Matt Rueben, University of Southern California
  *   Stefanos Nikolaidis, University of Southern California
  *   Maartje de Graaf, Utrecht University
  *   Elizabeth K. Phillips, United States Air Force Academy
  *   Lionel Robert, University of Michigan
  *   David Sirkin, Stanford University
  *   Minae Kwon, Stanford University
  *   Sam Thellman, Linköping University

We are eager to receive your submissions.
