Interaction Studies is an interdisciplinary journal that
publishes original, high-quality research on social behavior and communication in biological and
artificial systems.

************************************
We find in social robotics many so-called “wicked problems” – problems that are extremely
complex and resist complete definition and resolution. To work out these problems, it is necessary
to critically discuss the underpinning logic, or line of reasoning, that motivates social robotics and
to develop new interdisciplinary methods to make social robots more “socially robust”. This special
issue aims to address current challenges in social robotics by bringing methodological discussions
to the foreground and therefore calls for submissions focusing on new methodologies in social
robotics by reflecting on, developing, and demonstrating interdisciplinary research. Researchers
with various disciplinary backgrounds and professions (e.g. engineering, physiotherapy,
philosophy, law, biology, art, STS, psychology, medicine, HRI, sociology, computer science,
nursing, industry, education, anthropology, HCI, management etc.) are strongly encouraged to
contribute.

This special issue aspires to report original research on new interdisciplinary methodologies in
social robotics. To further advance the field of social robotics a pressing question is for example
whether social robotics should in the near future strive to become more homologous field of
research, or rather attempt to balance ongoing tensions among disciplinary standards, which is
always a major challenge in interdisciplinary work. Successful submissions to the special issue
should therefore focus on (a) defining current challenges from a methodological point of view and
(b) presenting in response different models, approaches or methods for interdisciplinary social
robotics. If possible, c) they should also provide illustrations of implementation of the suggested
model, approach or method with a critical discussion thereof. All articles will be peer-reviewed.

************************************
