Call For Papers

Dear Esteemed Roboticist, Neuroscientists, Psychologists and Designers,

I hope this email finds you well in your bustling schedule.

Just a sweet reminder that the deadline for submitting your paper for the Journal - Frontiers in Robotics and AI, special research topic: NeuroDesign in Human-Robot Interaction, is approaching on December 29th. We truly cherish your insights and are looking forward to reading your contribution.

Specifically, for those focusing on the design and theoretical aspects of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), we are particularly interested in submissions that explore the brain's or neural mechanisms' roles in processing information during HRI from cognitive and psychological perspectives. Understanding the fundamental design methodologies, such as robot morphology and interactive behaviors, or theoretical principles, including algorithms and philosophical concepts, is crucial. These insights will guide us in creating more engaging and seamless interactions. Therefore, we are especially eager to receive submissions in the fields of cognitive robotics or neurorobotics, particularly those incorporating user studies in their design of HRI.

If you foresee any challenges in meeting the deadline, we kindly request that you notify us as soon as possible. This will allow us to make the necessary adjustments. Depending on your individual circumstances, we may consider extending the deadline to January 2024.

Thank you for your commitment and contributions to our field. We eagerly look forward to your submission. Wishing you a wonderful day and smooth writing!

Warm regards,

Topic Editors

NeuroDesign in Human-Robot Interaction: The Making of Engaging HRI Technology Your Brain Can’t Resist

We are pleased to announce a call for papers and the extension of the deadline for the special issue - “NeuroDesign in Human-Robot Interaction: The making of engaging HRI technology your brain can’t resist”. This special issue will be published in the research topic of the journal - Frontiers in Robotics and AI and Frontiers in Neurorobotics. In this special issue, we will discuss the fascinating Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) research with the interfacing of applied neuroscience, psychology and design methodologies.

Scope of submissions:

The complex tapestry of human biology, consciousness, and cognition presents a unique challenge for technology designed to interact with us. This complexity demands a multidisciplinary approach that leverages insights from neuroscience, behavioral psychology, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence to address the barriers that currently hinder natural and effective human-robot interaction.

This special issue aims to bridge the gap between laboratory research and practical applications, guiding the development of HRI strategies that are not only technically proficient but also intuitive, engaging, and cognitively harmonious with human operators.


We invite original research, review articles, and perspective pieces that contribute to the following non-exhaustive list of topics:

1. Neuroscience-Driven HRI Strategies:

- Use of neuroimaging tools (fMRI, EEG, fNIRS) to decode brain activities that can enhance HRI.

- Translational neuroscience methods to inform and refine HRI design.

2. Iterative Development and Brain-Centric Interfaces:

- Insights from iterative design processes to craft improved human, brain, and robot interfaces.

- Integration of human and robot in a symbiotic closed-loop system through innovative I/O interfaces.

3. Invasive and Non-Invasive NeuroDesign Applications:

- Development of smart wearables, exoskeletons, or implantable devices monitoring brainwaves and physiological signals.

- Design of interfaces to track and influence mechanical movements in tandem with human motion.

4. Neurofeedback Devices for Emotional and Behavioral Regulation:

- Application of devices such as tDCS, tMS, NMES for neural or muscular stimulation.

- Exploration of neurofeedback's role in modulating emotional and behavioral states in HRI contexts.

5. AI and Machine Learning in NeuroDesign:

- Co-design of hardware and software integrating AI to enhance the user experience.

- Implementation of machine learning algorithms for a brain-centered approach in perception and cognition.

Submission Deadline:

December 29, 2023 (extended)

Discounts and Fee Support:

1. Frontiers institutional agreements:

2. Open-access funding sources:

3. Frontiers’ fee support program:

Additionally, separate to fee support, we are currently offering 25% discounts for Type-A articles and 50% discounts for Type-B articles received before the manuscript deadline. This is on a first-come-first-served basis.

A-Type Articles: Original Research, Systematic Review, Methods, Review, Policy and Practice Reviews, Hypothesis & Theory, Clinical Trial, Registered Report, Technology and Code

B-Type Articles: Mini Review, Perspective, Case Report, Brief Research Report

How to Submit:
