Advanced Robotics
Special Issue on "Robot and Human Interactive Communication"

Important dates:
Submission due:31 December 2019
Notification of acceptance: Apr-May 2020.
Final Submission: 30th May 2020
Publish:June 2020(Vol.34, Issue 11)

The main purpose of this special issue is to publish state-of-the-art innovative results, the latest developments as well as future perspectives relating to robot and human interactive communication. Based on this idea, the special issue is
open to all the thematic areas related to human-robot interaction. It will also carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the main conference and workshops of the RO-MAN 2019.
The special issue covers a wide range of topics related to human-robot interactive communication, involving theories, ethodologies, technologies, empirical and experimental studies. Papers related to the study of robotic technology, psychology, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, human factors, interaction-based robot design, and other topics related to human-robot interaction are welcome to be submitted. The topic of the special issue includes, but are not limited to:

- Research, design and development, and use of robots that interact collaboratively
- Innovative robot designs for HRI research
- User-centered design of social robots
- Novel interfaces and interaction modalities
- Long-term experience and longitudinal HRI studies
- Evaluation methods and new methodologies for HRI research
- Degrees of autonomy and teleoperation
- Human factors and ergonomics in HRI research
- Social, ethical and aesthetic issues in human-robot interaction research
- Robots in education, therapy, and rehabilitation
- Robot companions and social robots in home environments
- Applications of social robots in entertainment, service robotics,
space travel, and others
- Anthropomorphic robots and virtual humans
- Robotic etiquette
- Social intelligence for robots
- Social presence for robots and virtual humans
- Personalities for robotic or virtual characters
- Embodiment, empathy, and intersubjectivity in interaction with
robotic and virtual characters
- Cooperation and collaboration in human-robot teams
- Virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality environments for
human-robot interaction
