International Ph.D. Conference on Safe and Social Robotics

CALL FOR PAPERS

SSR 2018 – International PhD Conference on Safe and Social Robots: A conference on Social Robots in the Society – Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Quality and Safety
Date: 29-30 September, 2018
Place: Madrid, Spain
Conference website: http://www.socrates-project.eu/sesoro-2018

OVERVIEW

Social robots are expected to interact safely and efficiently with people, as they add value to health-care, education, entertainment, care-giving, and other aspects of society. As research advances towards the integration of robots into our society, there is an increased need to pay adequate attention to the quality of the interaction between robots, humans and the environment as well as the safety of this interaction. Design of social robots should take into account user safety, avoiding any negative impact on their well-being and improving their quality of life.

This conference is intended to share knowledge about technological opportunities and challenges regarding different aspects of social robot companions and start a discussion within the scientific community about issues concerning safety. The student conference is jointly organized by two Horizon-2020 European Union projects which are training programs with a special focus on Human Robot Interaction (HRI).

The SECURE project http://www.secure-robot.eu/ aims to incorporate intelligent safety awareness into dynamic and unpredictable human or domestic environments and into interactions with robots. The SOCRATES project http://www.socrates-project.eu/ has the goal of developing the field of social robotics with an application focus on robotics for an aging population. The aim of the conference is to bring researchers together to present ongoing research and to discuss the state of the art and future directions.

SCOPE

The aim of the student conference is to provide a forum to disseminate and foster discussion on recent and significant research within social robotics focused towards quality and safety in HRI.

TOPICS

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Effective Expression Recognition
Human-Robot interaction design principles
User perception and acceptance of social robots
Ethics in social robotics
Intelligence in social robots
Intention recognition
Social robot adaptivity and learning
Safety design
Assistive robotics
Empathy in robots
Trust in robots
Motion planning and environment modeling design
Human-Robot dialogue design

IMPORTANT DATES

July 31st: Submission deadline
August 21st: Notification of acceptance
August 31st: Camera ready paper
September 29-30: Student Conference

SUBMISSION

Submissions will be judged based on relevance to the conference topics, technical quality, and novelty. Authors of accepted papers are expected to give a short spotlight talk and to present a poster at the conference. A number of full papers will be selected for longer 15 minutes oral presentation. We also welcome preliminary results, works in progress and position papers.

Submission link will appear http://www.socrates-project.eu/sesoro-2018/sesoro-2018/submission/

FORMAT

Authors are required to submit a 2-page extended abstract or 2-4 page short paper as PDF in the standard IEEE conference format.
