The third HRI conference was held in Amsterdam, Netherlands in March 2008. The theme of HRI 2008, Living With Robots, highlights the importance of the technical and social issues underlying long-term human-robot interation towards companion and assistive robots for long-term use in everyday life and work activities. HRI is a single-track, highly selective annual conference that seeks to showcase the very best interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in human-robot interaction with roots in psychology, cognitive science, HCI, human factors, artificial intelligence, and robotics, and we invite broad participation. The conference received 138 submissions, 48 of which appeared in the conference program. More information on the conference can be found on the conference website.
