Dear robotics community,

(apologies for cross-posting)

Please feel invited to submit to SCRITA 2019. The workshop will be held in conjunction with IEEE RO-MAN 2019, Le Meridien, Windsor Place, New Delhi, India, 14 – 18 Oct, 2019.

This Workshop will focus on users’ trust in robots. We aim to explore different aspects of Human-Robot Interaction that can affect, enhance, undermine, or recovery humans’ trust in robots, such as the use of social cues, behaviour transparency (goals and actions), etc. In particular, this session will bring together leading researchers in the field to share and discuss ideas and findings that can guide the design and development of trustable and acceptable robots.

List of Topics

We are seeking papers covering all the different aspects of Human-Robot Interaction that can affect, enhance, undermine and recovery of humans' trust in robots. We strongly encourage submissions from leading researchers in the fields about designing and development of robots that human users would accept and trust:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  *   Impact of Social Cues on Trust in Human-Robot Interaction
  *   Measuring Trust in Human-Robot Interaction
  *   Trust Violation and Recovery Mechanism in HRI
  *   Effects of Humans’ Acceptance on Trust of Robots
  *   Humans Sense of Control and Trust in Robots
  *   Trust and Assistive Robotics
  *   Overtrust in Robots
  *   Antecedent of Trust and Robot Trust
  *   Enhancing Humans Trust in Robots
  *   Enhancing Trust in a Robot Companion
  *   User Profiling and Trust in Human-Robot Interaction

Important Dates

  *   Submission 04.08.2019
  *   Notification 25.08.2019
  *   Camera-ready 01.09.2019

Submission Guidelines

We encourage participants to submit long abstract or full papers, up to 6 pages, on original research and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Authors should submit their papers formatted according to the IEEE RO-MAN two-column format.
