HRI 2015 is the 10th Annual Conference for basic and applied human-robot interaction research. Researchers from across the world attend and submit their best work to HRI to exchange ideas about the latest theories, technology, data, and videos furthering the state-of-the-art in human-robot interaction.
Each year, the HRI Conference highlights a particular area through a theme. The theme of HRI 2015 is “Broadening HRI: Enabling Technologies, Designs, Methods, and Knowledge.” The conference seeks contributions from a broad set of perspectives, including technical, design, methodological, behavioral, and theoretical, that advance fundamental and applied knowledge and methods in human-robot interaction. We particularly invite papers on work that “enables” human-robot interaction through new technical advances, novel robot designs, new guidelines for design, and advanced methods for understanding and evaluating interaction.
The HRI Conference is a highly selective annual international conference that aims to showcase the very best interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in human-robot interaction with roots in and broad participation from communities that include but not limited to robotics, human-computer interaction, human factors, artificial intelligence, engineering, and social and behavioral sciences.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Mechatronics and robot platforms for HRI
- Robot middleware and software architectures
- Robot learning from human guidance and demonstration
- Robotic navigation and mobile manipulation for HRI
- Dialog and natural language for HRI
- Mixed initiative and sliding autonomy
- Privacy and security for real world HRI
- Enabling reproducibility and interoperability in robotics
- Safety and physical interactions between robots and humans
- Perception and recognition of human actions and activities
- Multi-modal interaction, perception, and decision making
- Task allocation and coordination
- Collaboration between humans and robots
- Social, lifelike, and/or companion robotics
- Field and service robotics
