Hello Roboticists!

The 2019 HRI Pioneers Workshop
partnered with the 2019 International Conference on Human Robot Interaction
(HRI 2019)
, 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
13 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 31%), 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 to either
our Sponsorship or General Chairs if you have any questions!

Hope to see you all in March!
