Workshops and Tutorials

We invite you to organize a workshop or tutorial for the 19th Annual ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2024). HRI is a highly selective conference that aims to showcase the very best HRI research. It has interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary roots in robotics, social psychology, cognitive science, HCI, human factors, artificial intelligence, engineering, and many other disciplines. Each year, the HRI conference highlights a particular theme. For HRI 2024, the theme is “HRI in the real world.” We encourage tutorial and workshop proposals to build upon this theme, whether by topic, structure, or ways to engage participants.

We invite experts in different areas to propose half-day or full-day tutorials relevant to the HRI 2024 theme of “HRI in the real world.” Examples of topics are state-of-the-art overviews of particular HRI areas or design/research methods. Interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome.
The responsibilities of tutorial organizers include:
● Setting up a website for the tutorial that will be linked to the HRI 2024 website
● Publicizing the tutorial
● Running the tutorial at the conference [and/or online]
● Optionally, compiling tutorial proceedings after the workshop

Please submit the following information (up to 3 pages):
● Title of tutorial
● Motivation or background
● Overview of tutorial including topics covered and schedule
● Target audience or prerequisite
● Tutorial speaker(s), including biosketches/short CVs
● Links and references relevant to the tutorial
● A 150–250 word abstract suitable for advertising the tutorial at HRI 2024
● References (3-page limit is inclusive of the reference section)

Submission Details

Workshop and tutorial proposals should be no longer than 3 pages.

Proposals must be submitted in PDF format and conform to ACM Proceedings specifications.

Please note that we are following the general ACM SIG format (“sigconf”, double column format), not the SIGCHI format. Templates are available at this link (US letter).

In addition, ACM has partnered with Overleaf, where you can start writing using this link directly (note that this Overleaf document uses the new ACM workflow by default, which is not what HRI is using; to fix this, make sure the document uses the “sigconf” document class, rather than the “manuscript,screen,review” document class that is enabled in the Overleaf document by default).

Workshop and tutorial proposals should be submitted via the PCS submission system (

All submissions will undergo a review process by the Workshop and Tutorial Chairs plus other experts.
