[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] WORKSHOP “COGNITIVE AND SOCIAL NEUROSCIENCE METHODS FOR HRI”
Please find below a call for abstracts for a workshop at the next HRI in Chicago.
WORKSHOP “COGNITIVE AND SOCIAL NEUROSCIENCE METHODS FOR HRI”
--The 13th Annual ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human Robot Interaction—
When? 5th of March, 13:30-18:00
Where? Chicago, McCormick Place 2233 S. Martin Luther King Drive, Chicago, IL 60616 Submission Deadline: 9th of February, Camera ready: 20th of February
Content: This workshop focuses on research in HRI using objective measures from social and cognitive neuroscience to provide guidelines for the design of robots well-tailored to the workings of the human brain. The aim is to present results from experimental studies in which human behavior and brain activity are measured during interactive protocols with robots. Discussion will focus on means to improve replicability and generalizability of experimental results in HRI.
1:30 - 2:15 Keynote: Tony Belpaeme, Plymouth University
2:15 - 3:15 4 position papers
3:15 - 3:45 Coffee break
3:45 - 4:15 2 position papers
4:15 - 5:15 Poster session
5:15 - 6:00 Round-table discussion
Target audience: The workshop targets an audience interested in using objective methods in HRI research and robot design. We welcome an interdisciplinary audience of roboticists, neuroscientists, psychologists, linguists, designers and those working in related fields. We will call for position papers that address HRI and human social cognition in interaction with robots with a primary focus on objective measures of psychology, cognitive and social neuroscience, and related fields. We will aim to create a program that includes a diverse range of speakers and topics to maximize interest and relevance to our audience.
Abstract Submission Guidelines: The papers should be no longer than 500 words (free format) and should include a part reporting empirical results as well as an opinion section stating if/how, according to the authors, the use of objective (neuro-cognitive) methods facilitates progress in HRI. For oral presentations, we will select those proposals that present multiple studies and/or overview of a body of work; while smaller-scale studies or single-study papers will be selected for poster presentations. Abstracts will be uploaded on the workshop website.
