CFP: Workshop on Collaborative Robots and Human Robot Interaction, CTS 2011


CALL FOR PAPERS

International Workshop on Collaborative Robots and Human Robot Interaction
http://cts2011.cisedu.info/2-conference/workshops/workshop-09--cr-hri
As part of The 2011 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies
and Systems (CTS 2011) http://cts2011.cisedu.info

May 23 - 27, 2011
The Sheraton University City Hotel
Philadelphia, PA, USA

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: February 1, 2011

************************************************************************

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

Applications of and research on robotic technologies are growing in both civilian and military contexts, including small unmanned ground sensors,
socially assistive and companion robots, and multi-ton unmanned vehicles. In the near future, we anticipate that robots will be increasingly employed
in collaborative interaction with humans and other robots, working together to achieve common goals. The study, design, and implementation of
interaction among collaborative robots as well as between robots and their human operators is critical to the successful employment of robots, and,
therefore, needs careful examination and further research.

This workshop on collaborative robots and human-robot interactions - to be held as part of the 2011 International Conference on Collaboration
Technologies and Systems - will focus on the areas of human-robot interaction and human-robot collaborative technologies. We invite original
contributions from researchers in academia, research laboratories, and the computer industry on these emerging and important areas of information
technology. Our goals are to provide a dedicated refereed workshop that fosters closer interaction among researchers from multiple relevant
disciplines, including robotics, human-robot interaction, design, cognitive science, psychology, computer science, anthropology, human-computer
interaction, as well as user communities, and to provide a forum in which they can exchange their findings and ideas.

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

Collaborative Robots and Unmanned Vehicles (CR & UV):
-Multi-Robot Systems
-Collaborative Robots Behavior
-Collaborative Control of Robot Motion
-Control of a Team of Robots in a Mission
-Cooperating Autonomous Robots
-Agent-based Distributed Robotic Systems
-Adaptive and Learning System for Collaborative Robots
-Multiple Vehicle Systems and Networks of Autonomous Vehicles
-Cooperative Navigation, Control and Perception
-Collaborative Robots for Infrastructure Security Applications
-Adjustable/Adaptive Automation

Human-Robot Interaction (HRI):
-User Interface Designs for Collaborative HRI
-Usability Evaluations of Collaborative Robots
-Design and Implementation of Companion and Assistive Robots
-Human-Robot Cooperation in Teamwork
-Experiments on HRI Collaboration
-Metrics and Measurements for Collaborative HRI
-Ethnography and Field Studies in Human-Robot Collaboration
-Human Factors and Evaluation Methodologies
-Collaborative HRI Applications (Industrial, Home, Assistive and Rehabilitative, Medical, Entertainment and Sport, Agriculture, Mining, etc.)


PAPER SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to collaborative robots, autonomous vehicles, and human robot interactions. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. We welcome prospective participants to submit either full papers (up to 8 pages) or short papers (2-4 pages). The manuscript should use the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. In case of multiple authors, an indication of which author is responsible for correspondence must be indicated. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via EasyChair at
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=crhri2011.

Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, contributions, technical clarity and
presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted
papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the CTS 2011 web site later. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of
the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed accordingly.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
