The HRI community has created a community forum with blogs, discussion groups, and publications. This forum is available at HRIweb.org.
A webpage has been created where links have been posted to photos taken at HRI2007 -- some from the conference, and some from the Washington DC area. Enjoy!

robots must coordinate their behaviors with the requirements and
of human team members; they are more than mere tools but rather
members whose tasks have to be integrated with those of humans. The
Annual Conference on Human-Robot Interaction is dedicated to these and
issues in human and robot interaction (HRI). The theme of HRI 07, Robot as Team Member, highlights the
importance of building core science and understanding the social and
issues in human-robot interaction in the context of teams and groups.
HRI 07 is
an interdisciplinary conference with roots in psychology, cognitive
HCI, human factors, artificial intelligence and robotics, and we invite
participation. This annual event will be held in March 2007 in
Scope of the Conference
Who Should Attend
Researchers in robotics, human-factors, ergonomics, and human-computer
interaction are invited to attend. Because human-robot interaction is
inherently inter-disciplinary, the conference is seeking papers from
several disciplines. A primary goal of the conference is to create a
common venue for a broad set of researchers. By appealing to a broad
set of researchers, the conference complements many existing venues.
HRI is a single track, highly selective annual conference that seeks to showcase the very best in human-robot interaction. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and assigned for either full or poster presentation.
