We welcome everybody to Vienna to HRI 2017! We know you are looking forward to the coming days. Today is workshop day, tomorrow, the regular conference takes off. Also, don’t miss today’s welcome reception.


Did you have to stay at home and we miss you here in Vienna?

We are excited to announce that the HRI 2017 conference will have telepresence available for you to log in during the sessions and watch remotely.  For those of you who are unable to attend HRI this year in person, please express your interest in attending specific sessions via telepresence (provided by our supporters Revolve Robotics and Suitable Technologies) using this link. You will be asked to indicate which sessions you are interested in attending.  Prior to that session, you will receive an invitation email with a link to download the software and join the meeting for a specified timeframe.

Please keep in mind that the availability and quality of your telepresence experience is dependent on internet connection.  Therefore, please understand that at times connection may be slow or unavailable.  We will do our best to provide you with the best experience possible.  If you experience issues, please email jbeer@cse.sc.edu or mcakmak@cs.washington.edu.
