*********************************************************************
The 12th International Workshop on Human-Friendly Robotics (HFR 2019)
October 24-25, 2019 - Reggio Emilia, Italy
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.hfr2019.unimore.it&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=TKD5YztX1LD88REFS9xAqKyFhMpd8nImCZKyiGii15s&s=KiLJOclk2XKKX3wRx0oX1QkW_the8EhmeipoaCGNJFs&e=
*********************************************************************

The objective of the International Workshop on Human-Friendly Robotics is
to stimulate a focused single-track discussion and bring together
researchers so to share knowledge on design, control, safety and ethical
issues, concerning the introduction of robots into everyday life.
The workshop covers a wide range of topics related to human-robot
interaction, both physical and cognitive, including theories,
methodologies, technologies, empirical and experimental studies.

In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
FUNDAMENTS OF HUMAN-FRIENDLY ROBOTS:
* mechatronic design
* control methods for safe and adaptive interaction
* interaction-based robot design
* telerobotic systems
* methods for physical and cognitive human-robot interaction
* multimodal human-robot communication
* human monitoring and intention recognition
* cognitive modeling
* adaptive interfaces
* cooperative task execution and sliding autonomy
* learning by demonstration
* human factors
* benchmarking and performance analysis
* social and ethical issues
APPLICATIONS OF HUMAN-FRIENDLY ROBOTS:
* medical and rehabilitation devices
* prostheses and orthoses
* robot assisted therapy
* personal and entertainment robots
* collaborative robots
* social robots
* telerobotics
* human-robot interaction in hazardous environments.
