Nowadays, a lot of attention is given by many different research areas
to the human- centered robotics topic. Despite that robots are becoming
more and more part of humans’ daily lives in fields such as healthcare,
entertainment, education, social assistance, physical therapy, and
others, they are barely seen in the real world and in the service of
people in need. This is partly due to the high prices of the proposed
solutions, but also due to a lack of guaranteed, safe behavior or
non-intrusive solutions. Furthermore, for practical reasons, some of
these solutions were derived from existing systems that were developed
for industrial or research settings, which might not be sufficiently
adapted to human-centered contexts.
AIM & SCOPE:
This workshop aims at bringing together scientists from different areas
(human-robot interaction, artificial intelligence and machine learning,
assistive and rehabilitation robotics, robotic systems design, field
robotics, wearable robotics, biomedical and clinical domains, etc.)
which have, as research interest, a deeper understanding of humans to
propose solutions which:
(i) can be used by robots to safely interact, assist and cooperate with
(ii) can help at developing solutions adapted to human needs.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Physical and social interaction among robots and humans
Wearable robotics systems for rehabilitation and human augmentation
Bio-inspired models and controllers
Learning from demonstrations for Human-Robot Collaboration or
Autonomy in dynamic and uncertain environments
Applications and challenges in human-centered robotics (e.g.
interaction/therapy, to provide assistance)
Prospective participants are welcome to submit either full papers (6-8
pages), extended abstracts (4 pages) or posters (2 pages) in the
conference format (IEEE standard).
The HRoBa'18 Workshopis looking for original ideas and unpublished
contributions from different areas of robotics and intelligent systems
describing novel bio-inspired methodologies and drawing on rigorous
quantitative approaches across (but not limited to) computer science,
mathematics, engineering, physics, and life sciences. We also welcome
system design, works in progress, simulations or software solutions, as
long as they meet the guidelines of the session.
To submit your manuscript (pdf file) please send it by email to
_*[hidden email]*_ with the subject “HRoBa submission”.
Accepted papers require that, at least one of the authors to register
and attend the workshop.
