                                    Advanced Robotics
Special Issue on "Special Issue on Robot and Human Interactive Communication"
We would like to kindly invite you to submit a paper to the Special Issue on
"Special Issue on Robot and Human Interactive Communication"
in Advanced Robotics, which is an international journal organized by
RSJ (Robotics Society of Japan)

Important dates:
Submission due:31st January 2020  (New extended deadline)
Notification of acceptance: April-May 2020.
Final Submission: 30th May 2020
Publish:June 2020(Vol.34, Issue 11)

The main purpose of this special issue is to publish state-of-the-art
innovative results,
the latest developments as well as future perspectives relating to
robot and human
interactive communication. Based on this idea, the special issue is
open to all the
thematic areas related to human-robot interaction. It will also carry
revised and substantially
extended versions of selected papers presented at the main conference
and workshops of
the 28th IEEE International Conference on Robot and Human Interactive
(RO-MAN 2019).
The special issue covers a wide range of topics related to human-robot
communication, involving theories, methodologies, technologies,
empirical and experimental
studies. Papers related to the study of robotic technology,
psychology, cognitive science,
artificial intelligence, human factors, interaction-based robot
design, and other topics related
to human-robot interaction are welcome to be submitted. The topic of
the special issue
includes, but are not limited to:

- Research, design and development, and use of robots that interact
- Robots that support human collaboration
- Innovative robot designs for HRI research
- User-centered design of social robots
- Novel interfaces and interaction modalities
- Long-term experience and longitudinal HRI studies
- Evaluation methods and new methodologies for HRI research
- Degrees of autonomy and teleoperation
- Human factors and ergonomics in HRI research
- Virtual and augmented tele-presence environments
- Social, ethical and aesthetic issues in human-robot interaction research
- Robots in education, therapy, and rehabilitation
- Medical and surgical applications of robots
- Robot companions and social robots in home environments
- Assistive robotics for supporting the elderly or people with special needs
- Applications of social robots in entertainment, service robotics,
space travel, and others
- Anthropomorphic robots and virtual humans
- Interaction with believable characters
- Non-verbal cues and expressiveness in interactions: gesture,
posture, social spaces and facial
- Interaction kinesics
- Monitoring of behavior and internal states of human subjects
- Robotic etiquette
- Social intelligence for robots
- Social presence for robots and virtual humans
- Creating relationships with robots and humanoids
- Personalities for robotic or virtual characters
- Embodiment, empathy, and intersubjectivity in interaction with
robotic and virtual characters
- Intelligence, motivations, and emotions in robots
- Curiosity, intentionality, and initiative in interaction
- Perception and recognition functions for robots such as robot
audition and vision
- Linguistic communication and dialogue with robots and intelligent interfaces
- Multimodal interaction and conversational skills
- Cognitive and sensorimotor development in robots
- Cognitive skills and mental models for social robots
- Social learning and skill acquisition via teaching and imitation
- Programming by demonstration
- Cooperation and collaboration in human-robot teams
- Human-robot interaction and collaboration in manufacturing environments
- Motion planning and navigation in the vicinity of humans
- Machine learning and adaptation in human-robot interaction
- Multi-modal situation awareness and spatial cognition
- Computational architectures for human-robot interaction
- Detecting and understanding human activity
- Narrative and story-telling in interaction
- Virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality environments for
human-robot interaction
