As an organization at the forefront of human-robot interaction, we would like to invite you to support HRI 2017, the 12th annual IEEE/ACM International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction, to be held in Vienna, Austria, on March 6-9, 2017. The 12th anniversary conference is dedicated to “Smart Interaction.” HRI 2017 is a highly selective annual conference that seeks to showcase the very best research in human-robot interaction with roots in robotics, psychology, cognitive science, HCI, human factors, artificial intelligence, organizational behavior, anthropology, and many other fields.
The conference will be held at the Hall of Science in Vienna, Austria, bringing together researchers from all over the world. Previous HRI conferences have attracted an increasing number of participants: 224 in Christchurch, New Zealand (2016), 355 in Portland, USA (2015), 327 in Bielefeld, Germany (2014), 346 in Tokyo, Japan (2013), 332 in Boston, USA (2012), 290 in Lausanne, Switzerland and 250 in Osaka, Japan (2010). With the best minds and leading researchers in the field present, we wish to bring together the organizations most interested in the latest technological advances in HRI, and invite your participation in this event. We offer several levels of support, with various benefits associated with each level, as follows:
The levels above are guidelines. In-kind contributions are also welcome. We hope that you’ll help in supporting real world HRI research by joining us in Portland.
