International Congress Center Epochal Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Japan

The 2017 International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2017) invites papers for a Workshop on Social Robot Intelligence for Social Human-Robot Interaction of Service Robots.

Service robots with social intelligence are coming to the human world, and they will help us to make our lives better. We are organizing an exciting workshop at ICSR that is oriented towards sharing the ideas of participants with diverse backgrounds ranging from robotics, machine learning, computer vision, social psychology, and Human-Robot Interaction design. The purpose of this special session is to explore how social robots can interact with humans socially and facilitate the integration of social robots.

This workshop will focus on the current advances in the area of social Human-Robot Interaction, social intelligence, social skills, and their applications including clinical evaluations. Papers are solicited on all areas directly related to these topics, including but not limited to:

  • Social perception and context awareness
  • Short/long-term behaviour recognition
  • Social expression and interactive behavior
  • Social task modelling and management
  • Ontology based decision making
  • User evaluation
  • Emotion recognition
  • Emotion model
  • Dialogue based interaction
  • Script language design
  • Human-robot interaction design
  • Healthcare applications
  • Receptionist applications
  • Education applications

Prospective authors are invited to submit short papers (4-6 pages) with the Springer LNCS/LNAI style for the layout (one column, LNCS style templates are available on the Springer LNCS website) or slide (PPT format). Please submit your paper to Dr. Ho Seok Ahn (hs.ahn@auckland.ac.nz) with this title format: [ICSR2017 Workshop] Author_Title
