Call For Papers

ICSR2013 Theme: COMPANIONSHIP
---------------------------------------------------
The International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR) brings together researchers and practitioners working on the interaction between humans and robots and on the integration of robots into our society. The theme of the 2013 conference is "Companionship"

Robots will improve quality of human life through assistance, enabling for in
stance independent living or providing support in work-intensive, difficult and possibly complex situations. The conference aims to foster discussion on the development of computational models, robotic embodiments, and behaviour that enable social robots to have an impact on the degree of companionship with humans.
The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in the are a of social robotics: Innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and improvements, novel applications on the latest fundamental advances in the core technologies that form the backbone of social robotics, distinguished developmental projects, as well as seminal works in aesthetic design, ethics and philosophy, studies on social impact and influence pertaining to social robotics, and its interaction and communication with human beings and its social impact on our society.

The topics of interest include, but
are not limited to the following:
- Interaction and collaboration among robots, humans, and environments
- Robots to assist the elderly and persons with disabilities
- Socially assistive robots to improve quality of life
- Affective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robots
- Personal robots for the home
- Social acceptance and
impact in the society
- Robot ethics in human society
- Context awareness, expectation, and intention understanding
- Control architectures for social robotics
- Socially appealing design methodologies
- Safety in robots working in human spaces
- Human augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robots
-Robot applications in education, entertainment, and gaming
