Call For Papers

The 3rd International Conference on Human-Robot Personal Relationships
(HRPR 2010) is organized and hosted by Leiden University's Institute of
Advanced Computer Science. As its two prior editions, it is the main
platform to present and discuss studies of personal relationships with
artificial partners, their formation, their possibilities and their
consequences. Such personal relationships are increasingly attracting
attention from scientific fields as (social) robotics, humancomputer
interaction, artificial intelligence, psychology, philosophy, sociology.

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Researchers, students and practitioners from all segments of the human-
robot personal interaction community are invited to submit works and
proposals related (but not limited) to the topics

* robot emotions
* robot personalities
* gender approaches
* affective approaches
* psychological approaches
* sociological approaches
* philosophical approaches
* roboethics
* human-robot societies
* case studies

in any of the following forms

* original papers & position papers (4-8 pages, publ. in proceedings)
* extended abstracts (2 pages, published in proceedings)
* workshop proposals
* demonstrations of running system prototypes
* artistic installations (possibly combined with an extended abstract).

The language of the conference is English.

CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS (SPRINGER LNICST SERIES):

All submissions will be peer-reviewed using a double-blind procedure,
based on technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.
Accepted papers are published in the Springer LNICST series and
included in the SpringerLink online publication database.

CONFERENCE VENUE:

The city of Leiden (The Netherlands) is well known for its historic
downtown with pretty canals, museums, famous university, and lively
academic atmosphere. It was home to great painters such as Rembrandt
and Jan Steen. Leiden is located in the heart of the Dutch tulip-
growing region only 20 minutes from Amsterdam international airport,
40 minutes from downtown Amsterdam, and 20 minutes from historic
Delft. The conference venue is Leiden University's historic Kamerlingh
Onnes building, located on a canal in the city s historic quarter.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS:

Prof. Dr. Kerstin Dautenhahn

Kerstin Dautenhahn pioneered research in robot social learning and
imitation, and the study of robots in autism therapy. She has published
more than 200 research articles and made countless media appearances
promoting her scientific field. As such, she was of great influence to
the field of human-robot personal relationships.
She is Professor of Artificial Intelligence in the School of Computer
Science at University of Hertfordshire, where she is coordinator of the
Adaptive Systems Research Group. Her main areas of research are
Human-Robot Interaction, Social Robotics, Socially Intelligent Agents
and Artificial Life.
Kerstin has authored and edited several books and frequently organizes
international research workshops and conferences. She is Editor in Chief
of the journal Interaction Studies, and Associate Editor of the journals
Adaptive Behavior, the International Journal of Social Robotics, and
IEEE Transactions on Autonomous Mental Development.

Other invited speakers are to be confirmed.
