Important Dates:
Submission deadline: September 15:
Notification of acceptance: September 12
Camera-ready paper submission deadline: September 20:
Workshop: October 5 (Full-day):

The focus of robotics research is shifting from industrial robots to
robots working in daily situations and one of the most important
issues is to develop autonomous social robots capable to interact with
and live together with humans, i.e., symbiotic robots with humans. The
aim of this workshop is to introduce research activities in “Symbiotic
Human-Robot Interaction,” and discuss the future challenges in this
research area.

One of the goals of this research area is providing communication
support for people, such as companion robots for elderly people who
need psychological support as much as physical support. For this aim,
various humanoids, including android robots, have been studied for a
few decades, and full-scale social implementations are about to begin.

In this workshop, organizers will demonstrate one of our androids, the
world-famous, state-of-the art communication robots and bring you a
brainstorming workshop. We will discuss the future of everyday robots,
key technologies to make them able to be true companions living
together with us.

The organizers will bring an android robot "ERICA," to activate the discussion.
The robot is introduced on the below youtube page.
The setup of the robot will also be shown in the morning session (9:00-11:00).
