FULL PAPERS
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: March 29, 2020 (extended)
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE: MAY 27, 2020 
CAMERA-READY DEADLINE: JUNE 15, 2020

The Ro-MAN2020 is a leading forum where state-of-the-art innovative results,
the latest developments as well as future perspectives relating to robot and
human interactive communication are presented and discussed. The conference
covers a wide range of topics related to Robot and Human Interactive
Communication, involving theories, methodologies, technologies, empirical
and experimental studies. Papers related to the study of the robotic
technology, psychology, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, human
factors, ethics and policies, interaction-based robot design and other
topics related to human-robot interaction are welcome.

Conference theme:
Robots with Heart, Mind, and Soul
The fruitful interaction of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics is
currently leading the Robot and Human Interactive Communication community
towards new frontiers where perceptual, reasoning, manipulation, and
interaction capabilities are effectively deployed in real word applications.
Still, there are several research challenges to be addressed. Firstly, the
robot mind can be enhanced by a heart, so social and emotional capabilities
are required to complement every single robotic functionality. It is not
just a matter of performing an interaction task correctly, but mainly of
performing such tasks in a way that is believable and acceptable to humans.
The user's experience with the robot is key to its large-scale adoption.
Companies need to build solutions rooted in a deeper analysis of humans'
specificities.
At the same time, academia needs to nurture the development of an extended
research community with a set of interdisciplinary skills to investigate the
required robot's capabilities for interactive communication with human
beings, for defining decision, machine learning algorithms, and cognitive
architectures to appropriately adapt the robot's behavior to the social
context.
Finally, such new bootstrap in robotic technologies for everyday life will
require a soul, so to address social, legal, and ethical issues that arise
by the uptake robots in personal domains, as such skills are fundamental to
achieve technological innovation which aligns with social, ethical and legal
values, in the direction of an ELSE (Ethical, Legal, Social, and Economic)
Robotics. Works that address open research problems with a clear view of the
practical application, both from the point of view of a direct realization
in the market and from the point of view of possible implications of such
technologies are welcome.

FULL PAPERS
Authors should submit their papers electronically in PDF format via
Papercept
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ras.papercept.net_confe

BmEXiJYAlUgSyyq6Ps&s=ajh8nF9m7_CLBbocHJqkFiFSX0AMr61nF_Jtvsn1CNQ&e= ). For
the first submission, a manuscript can be of 6-8 pages. For the final
submission, a manuscript should be of 6 pages, with 2 additional pages
allowed but at an extra charge. All papers are reviewed using a single-blind
review process.

All papers submitted to RO-MAN 2020 will undergo a peer-review process. A
manuscript will be reviewed by at least two reviewers, who will provide
detailed comments and - if the submission gets accepted - the authors submit
a revised ("camera-ready") version that takes into account this feedback.
All papers are reviewed using a single-blind review process: authors declare
their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but
reviewers do not know each other's identities, nor do the authors receive
information about who has reviewed their manuscript.

Authors should use the templates provided by the electronic submission
system. The templates for US Letter format paper should be used.

The manuscript submission website will require that you submit your abstract
and make any final changes to the author list and title of the paper before
uploading the paper.

All authors and co-authors must be registered in the electronic system. It
is the corresponding author's responsibility to ensure that the complete
author list and the correct title are being entered. This information will
be used for the conference program and the proceedings.

AUTHORS SHOULD ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING STEPS FOR SUBMITTING THE PAPER (FOR
INITIAL SUBMISSION):
- Create an account: go to

Ask all your co-authors to do the same if they do not have an account on the
system yet, write down the authors' PINs (this information is needed for
manuscript processing purposes).
- Go to Support Menu and depending on how you are preparing your paper,
download a template: LaTeX or MS-Word, Use these templates/style files to
create the paper and save in PDF format.
- Upload the paper: go to
