ACM/IEEE HRI 2023 Sponsorship Package

Dear Potential Sponsor,

The ACM/IEEE Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) 2024 is the annual conference for basic and applied human-robot interaction research. Researchers from across the world present their best work to HRI to exchange ideas about the theory, technology, data, and science furthering the state-of-the-art in human robot 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 are not limited to robotics, artificial intelligence, human computer interaction, human factors, design, and social and behavioral sciences.

In conjunction with the HRI conference, every year, young researchers are invited to submit their work to the Pioneers workshop. This exclusive forum seeks to foster creativity and collaboration surrounding key challenges in human-robot interaction and empower students early in their academic careers. The workshop brings together a cohort of the world’s top student researchers and provides the opportunity for students to present and discuss their work with distinguished student peers and senior scholars in the field.

Sponsoring either the HRI main conference or the Pioneers workshop (or both) provides a unique opportunity to connect with participants of the conference for recruiting, to learn from the state-of-the-art research being presented, and to also publicize new corporate innovations. It also allows your organization to invest in the brightest upcoming young researchers from around the world. We would graciously like to partner with your organization and have you as a sponsor for our upcoming events. As such, we invite you to read through the below sponsorship package, where we present to you the different benefits tiers available. These tiers provide flexibility depending on sponsorship goals, and all tiers demonstrate public support for the impactful research of the community. Sponsorship levels are in USD.

Should you have any questions, please contact the main conference organizers.
