We invite experts from all over the world to submit their latest work to the 9th ACM / IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2014). HRI 2014 offers the opportunity to  present and discuss contemporary HRI-related theories, empirical studies, videos, and demonstrators developed by leading researchers in the field. This year’s conference features the theme of “(E)Merging Perspectives“.

The theme “(E)Merging Perspectives“ seeks to combine both user and system perspectives to advance new and possibly unorthodox methodologies? To extend the current singular approaches, we strongly call for papers that demonstrate the usage of novel empirical methods, the integration of empirical findings into complex robot systems, and holistic approaches in system evaluation.

HRI is a single-track, highly selective annual international conference that showcases outstanding interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in human-robot interaction with roots in social psychology, cognitive science, HCI, human factors, artificial intelligence, robotics, organizational behavior, anthropology and many more. Thus, we invite broad participation from experts in these areas.
