[RO-MAN 2013] Work-in-Progress/Interactive Demonstration/Video Papers: Deadline Extended

The 22nd IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication (RO-MAN 2013) will be held in Gyeongju, Korea from August 26 to 29, 2013.

IEEE RO-MAN 2013 will be the best place to discuss and share your ideas and opinions on HRI (Human-Robot Interaction). IEEE RO-MAN 2013 will focus on the up-to-date theories technologies and studies for HRI and the related issues such as artificial intelligence/emotion, human factors, social relationship, haptic interaction, application and evaluations, etc. Especially, Art & Technology issue is newly generated this year as robotics tends to fuse with art. We truly welcome your papers on all aspects of human-robot interactive communication, and expect your great interest and participation.

Special poster session is prepared to present research results in there early stage from both academia and industry. 2 page extended abstract should be submitted via PaperPlaza site for the conference.

・ Interactive Demonstration Papers

Interactive Demonstration Session is designed to foster practical research into novel human-robot interaction technology. Groups that are interested in demonstrating their novel ideas and results with real robots or artifacts are encouraged to participate. The participating groups should submit a video clip showing the interactive demonstration as well as the 2 page extended abstract. The accepted contributors have to interactively demonstrate their results on site.

・ Video Papers

Videos illustrating new and exciting results are sought for dedicated video sessions. Videos should be accompanied by the 2 page extended abstract and should be submitted via the PaperPlaza submission site for the conference.
