March 11th 2019: HRI Pioneers Workshop

March 12th-14th 2019: HRI Main Conference


The 14th annual Human-Robot Interaction Pioneers Workshop will be held in Daegu, Korea on Monday, March 11, 2019 in
conjunction with the 2019 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction

Pioneers seeks to foster creativity and collaboration surrounding key challenges in human-robot interaction and empower
students early in their academic careers. Each year, the workshop brings together a cohort of the world's top student
researchers and provides the opportunity for students to present and discuss their work with distinguished student peers and
senior scholars in the field.

Pioneers is a premiere forum for graduate students in HRI, thus we invite students at any stage of their academic career to
consider applying. To facilitate attendance, we expect to provide financial support to accepted students to help mitigate the
costs of the workshop and main conference.


An anonymized, two-page description of the applicant's past, current, or proposed work. All extended abstracts must be
submitted in PDF format and conform to IEEE Proceedings specifications. Templates are available at this link
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ieee.org_conferences_publishing_templates.html&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=9Bkkioe-GNrUYwp14CpgIeDOYbE36XIhEown_lpBGdg&s=iQRoFdGVyPHIQTMRnx7vLUmt_md5EM-VNgolPWBRmOg&e=). In addition,
IEEE has partnered with Overleaf, where you can start writing using this link (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.overleaf.com_latex_templates_ieee-2D&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=9Bkkioe-GNrUYwp14CpgIeDOYbE36XIhEown_lpBGdg&s=lN3-SjwgxW2DQ-zZh95XiXQlw0Y8bjbMRgvd_qlKovY&e=
conference-template-example/nsncsyjfmpxy) directly.


The extended abstract should cover:

- key research questions/motivation of the applicant's work,

- background and related work that informs the research,

- the research approach and methodology, and

- results to date (if any) and a description of remaining work.

For undergraduate students, description of work on a previous project with clear ties to the field and potential implications
would be permissible. For graduate students, applications should include past work if applicable, as well as current and
future research plans.


Publications should be fully anonymized at the time of submission. Please see anonymization guidelines here
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__bit.ly_2E2IGrF&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=9Bkkioe-GNrUYwp14CpgIeDOYbE36XIhEown_lpBGdg&s=U8zuruHK2M0hOMEXLmqHT_yn2QksLrIHj5GXVml5LNc&e=) except for own prior work section. As we encourage you to highlight your own prior work, please
describe your prior works in first person but anonymize the work in the reference section.

A 2-page CV will be required as part of the submission process. Undergraduate students without laboratory experience can
include coursework or skills that are relevant to their project. Graduate students should include laboratory experience and
any publications/presentations that are applicable.

The application process will be open until November 2, 2018 (11:59PM PST)


The HRI Pioneers Workshop will follow a review process in which submissions will be evaluated by a number of factors

- the quality of the submission (blind review),

- the expected benefits of the workshop for the student's research, and

- the student's contribution to the diversity of topics, backgrounds, and institutions.

We hope to achieve a diversity of research topics, disciplinary backgrounds, methodological approaches, and home institutions.
As such, we do not expect more than two students to be invited per institution. In addition, we especially encourage groups
traditionally underrepresented in HRI to apply.Undergraduate student applications will be considered separately from those of
graduate students.
