Call For Papers

The 10th International Workshop on Human-Friendly Robotics (HFR 2017) will be organized on November 6-7, 2017, at the Università di Napoli “Federico II”, Napoli, Italy.

NOTICE: Accepted paper will be included in a Springer SPAR volume dedicated to the HFR 2017 even

Motivation and Objectives

The growing need to automate daily tasks, combined with new robot technologies, is driving the development of a new generation of human-friendly robots, i.e., safe and dependable machines, operating in the close vicinity to humans or directly interacting with them in a wide range of domains. The technological shift from classical industrial robots, which are safely kept away from humans in cages, to robots, which are used in close collaboration with humans, is facing major challenges that need to be overcome.

The objective of the workshop is to bring together academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects related to the introduction of robots into everyday life. The workshop covers a wide range of topics related to human-robot interaction, both physical and cognitive, including theories, methodologies, technologies, empirical and experimental studies.

List of topics

The list of topics include, but is not limited to:

Fundaments of human-friendly robots
mechatronic design
control methods for safe and adaptive interaction
interaction-based robot design
telerobotic systems
methods for physical and cognitive human-robot interaction
multimodal human-robot communication
human monitoring and intention recognition
