[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD in Robotics at Örebro University, Sweden

Andrey Kiselev
/******************************************************************************/
/*             PhD in Robotics at Örebro University, Sweden                   */
/******************************************************************************/

Örebro University is seeking outstanding candidates for a PhD position at the
Center of Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems. The Center for Applied Autonomous
Sensor Systems (AASS), carries out multi-disciplinary research environment at
Örebro University in the intersection of robotics, machine learning, artificial
intelligence, computer vision and computer science.

RESEARCH PROJECT

Mobile robotic telepresence is used as a social communication aid for older
adults, with remote users steering the robot in its environment using feedback
from a robot's sensors. For unfamiliar drivers, this often creates a heavy
workload and therefore reduces focus on social interaction. One way to reduce
the workload is to introduce adjustable autonomy to assist the remote user in
operating the robot.

The successful candidate will study how sliding autonomy can be implemented in
social robotic telepresence by integrating two complementary issues of
non-verbal cues and social norms. Only three questions for a four year project:

1. How non-verbal cues can be used to automatically adjust autonomy.
2. How to modify the behaviour of the robot, when in autonomous mode, to take
social norms into account.
3. How inclusion of social norms in the robot’s behaviour is related to the
cognitive workload for operating the robot, and the associated Interaction
Quality.

The researcher will undertake two secondements: (1) an academic secondment to
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beersheba, Israel; (2) an industrial
secondment to Fraunhofer IPA in Stuttgart, Germany.


SOCRATES

The recruitment is done as part of SOCRATES (SOcial Cognitive Robotic Agents in
The European Society), a new Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network
(ETN) comprising 7 universities/research institutes: Umeå University and Örebro
University in Sweden, Universität Hamburg and Fraunhofer IPA, Stuttgart in
Germany, CSIC Barcelona in Spain, University West of England, and Ben-Gurion
University of the Negev in Israel. Additional non-academic partners are: Pal
Robotics, Adele Robots, Alfred Nobel Science Park, Urquhart-Dykes & Lord LLP,
Center for Digital Innovation, UMINOVA, Asea Brown Boveri, S.A, and Fundació ACE.

CONTACT

Please, contact [hidden email]<mailto:[hidden email]> for more details on the position.

[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] ECCE-2017 Workshop on Robots in Contexts: Human-Robot Interaction as Physically and Socially Embedded

Andrey Kiselev
*Apologies for cross-posting*

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ECCE 2017 Workshop on Robots in Contexts: Human-Robot Interaction as
Physically and Socially Embedded
September 19, 2017, Umeå, Sweden (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ecce2017.eace.net_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=JK19tljgLEbd6xfy7R9c0MgV6KAHFMeBHQLBZ1bCejA&s=V50YgNOTYTcMF-Z92tEKNT9ouCbPE7BrepknmqH4yQ0&e= )
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This one-day workshop will be held as part of ECCE 2017 (the European
Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics, Umeå, Sweden, September 20-22, 2017,
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ecce2017.eace.net_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=JK19tljgLEbd6xfy7R9c0MgV6KAHFMeBHQLBZ1bCejA&s=V50YgNOTYTcMF-Z92tEKNT9ouCbPE7BrepknmqH4yQ0&e= )

IMPORTANT DATES:
- Submission by: June 25, 2017
- Notification of Acceptance: July 1, 2017
- Workshop: September 19, 2017 (the day before the main conference)

THEME AND AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP
Robotic technologies are being increasingly integrated into real life
settings. The adoption of robots by the society is transcending the
initial fascination with novel technology and is gradually entering a
new phase, characterized by a massive impact of the technology on
various aspects of our everyday lives. These developments emphasize the
need to better understand how robotic technologies shape, and are being
shaped by, the physical and social contexts in which they are used.

The aim of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners interested in analysis, design, and evaluation of
physically and socially embedded human-robot interaction (HRI) and, in
the context of ECCE, identify key relevant issues and collectively
explore a range of methods, concepts, and design approaches that could
help address such issues.

SUBMISSIONS
We invite the submission of position papers, up to 2 pages (including
references) in the ACM SIGCHI proceedings format (see
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.acm.org_publications_proceedings-2Dtemplate&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=JK19tljgLEbd6xfy7R9c0MgV6KAHFMeBHQLBZ1bCejA&s=6RN2SY3p1fh5rSMofyepZKm3JP-gK3UPFMyqOBGs3nI&e= ) offering
perspectives on contextually embedded human-robot interaction. At least
one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop.

Submissions should be made by email to vklinin(at)informatik.umu.se and
andrey.kiselev(at)oru.se by *June 25, 2017*.

All workshop participants must register for both the workshop and the
main conference.

WORKSHOP ORGANISERS
- Victor Kaptelinin, Umeå University
- Andrey Kiselev, Örebro University
- Amy Loutfi, Örebro University
- Thomas Hellström, Umeå University
