Special Session on Safe and Acceptable Human-Robot Collaboration
29th IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive
Communication (IEEE RO-MAN 2020)
31/8-4/9/2020 Naples, Italy
Motivation and goals of the session: The purpose of this special session
is to explore how collaborative robots can interact with humans in a
safe and acceptable way fostering their integration in real world
contexts. The special session will focus any human-robot collaboration
(HRC) application with a specific attention to industrial scenarios (one
of the most promising application areas for HRC). This special session
will focus on three aspects of human-robot collaboration: (1)
investigation of cognitive features and functions to support human-robot
interaction during the execution of collaborative tasks, (2)
technological development for guaranteeing safe and effective
human-robot collaboration and (3) human behavior and expectations as a
means to understand the acceptance aspects of collaborative robots in
real scenarios. This special session is also related to a Workshop held
in RO-MAN 2017 “Human-Robot Collaboration for an improved Quality of
Work” and will continue to pursue deeper understanding on HRC.
List of Topics (not limited to):
- Cooperative and Collaborative Human-Robot Interaction;
- New enhancing safety functions for the current status of ISO Robotics
Standards or future directions in relating to HRI;
- Vocal and gesture commands and physical contacts in real world
- Communication and coordination between human and robot;
- Robot motion and navigation in realistic environments
- Cognitive features for collaborative robots;
- Long-term autonomy in human-robot collaborative scenarios;
- Human-aware planning and execution in human-robot collaboration;
- Generation of robust robot controllers;
- Failure detection and recovery in HRC control systems;
- Evaluation methods for HRC workplaces and process (productivity,
- Benchmarking and objectively & quantitatively evaluating performance
of robots during the cooperation with human;
- Ergonomics of HRC (Physical, Intensity of signals, alarms, visual
- Vision and control of industrial robots for HRI applications;
- Novel Sensing and grasping technologies for HRI;
- Interfaces for real-time path and motion planning and collision
- HRC design;
- Case Studies, Experiments, Ethics and Outreach
TEMPLATES AND SUBMISSION PROCEDURE FOR REGULAR AND SPECIAL SESSION PAPERS
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. The review process is managed by the program
chair, the program co-chairs, the editors, and the conference associate
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.
*Submission deadline: MARCH 29, 2020 *
Notification of acceptance: MAY 27, 2020
Camera-ready deadline: JUNE 15, 2020
AUTHORS SHOULD ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING STEPS FOR SUBMITTING THE PAPER
(FOR INITIAL SUBMISSION):
Create an account: go to https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://ras.papercept.net/__;!!LIr3w8kk_Xxm!6MhaefPPE9W9sI6iCX7Xtsh6L4DBZSJQVHUUnliFUqVXVVJwHEGd0nAtJJH9qCuNq0xTU9TO$ , then PIN and fill
out the form. 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 https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://ras.papercept.net/__;!!LIr3w8kk_Xxm!6MhaefPPE9W9sI6iCX7Xtsh6L4DBZSJQVHUUnliFUqVXVVJwHEGd0nAtJJH9qCuNq0xTU9TO$ and click on "Submit
a contribution to RO-MAN 2020".
Submit (special session paper).
Fill in the form presented on the next page (make sure to enter all
author PINs created in Step 1).
