CALL FOR PAPERS
The 11th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2019)
November 26-29, 2019
== Important! ==
Submission deadline: June, 17th, 2019.
== General Information ==
The 11th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2019) brings together researchers and practitioners working on the interaction between humans and intelligent robots and on the integration of robots into the fabric of our society. ICSR 2019 will take place at Madrid, November 26-29, 2019.
It is organized by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid - Systems Engineering and Automation Department. Accepted papers will be included in ICSR 2019 Proceedings published by Springer LNAI series.
The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in the area of social robotics and AI: 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.
Authors can submit the complete manuscripts in PDF format, or the use the LaTex or Word templates provided by Springer. Full manuscripts are limited to 10 pages. The front page must contain the title of the paper, full name(s) and address(es) of the author(s) and the appropriate academic field(s). All papers will be refereed by the program committee. Authors are invited to submit their papers via the OCS submission system (https://ocs.springer.com/ocs/home/ICSR2019).
At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings.
