ACM Transactions on Human-Robot Interaction
Inaugural Special Issue
"New Frontiers for Human-Robot Interaction"


In little over a decade, HRI has become a critical and groundbreaking area
of research across robotics, computing, and the human-centered sciences,
poised for sustained intellectual impact and pioneering innovation.  Since
then, HRI has grown from just a small set of loosely connected researchers
and groups of researchers into a thriving research community.  The growth
of HRI is on a rapidly upward trend with increasing numbers of students,
investments, and projects aimed at getting robots into the real world to
work with diverse groups of people.  With this growth, a lively and engaged
community has developed around HRI that we aim to broaden toward the
greater goal of realizing robots for the benefit of society.

Building on the growth of HRI, the ACM Transactions on Human-Robot
Interaction (ACM THRI) actively aims to cultivate new and leading ideas in
both robotics and the human-centered sciences.  THRI, formerly the Journal
of Human-Robot Interaction, will kick-off its seventh volume (and first
volume under the ACM banner) with the special issue "New Frontiers for
Human-Robot Interaction."  This special issue solicits leading research
contributions and insightful perspectives to provide a foundation for the
next generation of HRI scholarship.

ACM THRI is committed to the intellectual advancement of robotics and the
human-centered sciences.  ACM THRI pursues this aim through our four
primary thematic sections focusing on research in the Computational,
Behavioral/Social, Design, and Mechanical dimensions of HRI.  ACM THRI
values the importance of creating robot capabilities and interfaces that
dynamically balance human and robot competencies while addressing human
concerns such as social appropriateness, safety, and quality of service.

ACM THRI accepts submissions (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__mc.manuscriptcentral.com_thri&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=CN5OSMpMaR-_rqXg-BDI4gGhofmLmefDYDCvf5aIvIg&s=UAL9IoqLj4qkAr_GOZ87eYU1e4pAtZs-Kcvc3AJr6Do&e=) on an
ongoing basis for review and publication.  Submissions received by November
25, 2017 will be given full consideration for publication in this special
issue.  This special issue is expected to be published in March 2018.
