Proceedings to be published in Springer Verlag LNAI/LNCS
The International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR) brings together
researchers and practitioners working on the issues of interaction between
humans and robots and on the integration of robots into our society. As in
previous years there will be an overall theme for the conference, this year
it will be "Companionship".
ICSR 2013 invites the submission of full papers from researchers, at any
stage in their career, that contain significant findings and advances in
all fields of social robotics. We are particularly interested in work that
addresses or supports this years conference theme in topics of interest
that include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Interaction and collaboration among robots, humans, and environments
- Robots to assist the elderly and persons with disabilities
- Socially assistive robots to improve quality of life
- Affective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robots
- Personal robots for the home
- Social acceptance and impact in the society
- Robot ethics in human society
- Context awareness, expectation, and intention understanding
- Control architectures for social robotics
- Socially appealing design methodologies
- Safety in robots working in human spaces
- Human augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robots
- Robot applications in education, entertainment, and gaming
- Embedding legal and ethical behaviour in robots
All contributions will be fully peer reviewed and the proceedings will be
published with Springer-Verlag as part of their LNAI/LNCS series.
Formatting and submission details will be available here:
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: 3/7/13
ICSR 2013 also invites applications for special sessions, whereby a
