Topics and Theme

Human-Robot Interaction and Communication is a quickly growing research
area at the intersection of research fields such as robotics, engineering,
psychology, ethology and cognitive science. Significant initiatives are
currently underway funded by public, academic, governmental as well as
industrial initiatives, exploring and aiming at advancing this research
field and opening up novel and challenging applications. Robots moving out
of laboratory and manufacturing environments face hard problems of
perception, action and cognition. For robots to be accepted as assistants
or companions in people's private homes and everyday environments
technological solutions do not suffice: The 'human in the loop', as the
potential customer and user will decide on the ultimate success of a 'home
robot' as a product. Application areas that heavily involve human contact
are a particularly challenging domain.

Human societies have easily assimilated new technologies, such as mobile
phones, but it is less clear in which application areas robots will be
accepted. Robots as embodied beings, physical, possibly humanoid or android
entities that share our living environments and accompany our lives will
have a certain degree of autonomy, initiative, cognitive skills and will
communicate and interact with people in ways inspired by human-human
contact. Interaction and communication of embodied physical robots with
humans is multi-modal, and involves deep issues of social intelligence,
communication and interaction that have traditionally been studied
primarily in psychology and other areas. The design of a robot’s behaviour,
appearance, and cognitive and social skills is highly challenging, and
requires interdisciplinary collaborations across the traditional boundaries
of established disciplines.

IEEE RO-MAN 06 provides a forum for an interdisciplinary exchange for
researchers dedicated to advancing knowledge in the field of human-robot
interaction and communication. Importantly, RO-MAN has traditionally
adopted a broad perspective encompassing research issues of human-machine
interaction and communication in networked media as well as virtual and
augmented tele-presence environments. Submissions are invited from a
variety of research areas that can advance our understanding of human-robot
interaction and communication, including areas of engineering and
information sciences as well as psychology, social sciences, cognitive
science and related areas.

The annual RO-MAN International Workshop series originated in 1992, with
the first workshop held at Hosei University in Japan. Since then, different
Japanese, European and USA institutions have hosted the workshop. In 2006
IEEE RO-MAN is a symposium and will be hosted in United Kingdom by the
Adaptive Systems Research Group at University of Hertfordshire. The event
will include tutorials, special organized sessions, and distinguished
invited keynote speakers.

Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

-innovative robot designs for HRI research
-user-centred design of social robots
-novel interfaces and interaction modalities
-long-term experience and longitudinal HRI studies
-evaluation methods and new methodologies for HRI research
-androids
-degrees of autonomy and teleoperation
-human factors and ergonomics in HRI research
-virtual and augmented tele-presence environments
-ethical issues in human-robot interaction research
-robots in education, therapy and rehabilitation
-medical and surgical applications of robots
-robot companions and social robots in home environments
-assistive robotics for supporting the elderly or people with special needs
-applications of social robots in entertainment, service robotics, space
travel and others
-anthropomorphic robots and virtual humans
-interaction with believable characters
-non-verbal cues and expressiveness in interactions: gesture, posture,
social spaces and facial expressions
-interaction kinesics
-monitoring of behaviour and internal states of human subjects
-robotic etiquette
-social intelligence for robots
-social presence for robots and virtual humans
-creating relationships with robots and humanoids
-personalities for robotic or virtual characters
-embodiment, empathy and intersubjectivity in interaction with robotic
and virtual characters
-motivations and emotions in robots
-curiosity, intentionality and initiative in interaction
-linguistic communication and dialogue with robots and intelligent interfaces
-multimodal interaction and conversational skills
-cognitive and sensori-motor development in robots
-cognitive skills and mental models for social robots
-social learning and skill acquisition via teaching and imitation
-programming by demonstration
-cooperation and collaboration in human-robot teams
-human-robot interaction and collaboration in manufacturing environments
-motion planning and navigation in the vicinity of humans
-machine learning and adaptation in human-robot interaction
-multi-modal situation awareness and spatial cognition
-computational architectures for human-robot interaction
-detecting and understanding human activity
-narrative and story-telling in interaction

Plenary Speakers include

Prof. Shuji Hashimoto (Waseda University, Japan)
Prof. Illah R Nourbakhsh (Carnegie Mellon University, USA)

Instructions for Authors

Papers reporting original and unpublished work are invited. Submissions
should include the paper title, names, tel/fax numbers, email and postal
addresses of all authors, and an abstract on the first page. All
submissions should be in English (6 pages maximum length in IEEE two-column
format). Papers will be peer-reviewed according to IEEE standards and
selected for oral or poster presentations based on their quality,
originality, significance, relevance and clarity of presentation. The paper
submission deadline is 15 March 2006. Final camera-ready submissions of
accepted papers to be published in the Proceedings are due on 10 June 2006.
ONLY ON-LINE SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED (please consult
http://ro-man2006.feis.herts.ac.uk where updates of the submission
procedure will be posted)

Tutorials

We are inviting suggestions for half-day tutorials relevant to the themes
of IEEE RO-MAN 06 to be held on the first day of the event (6th September
2006). Please submit the following information (1-2 pages maximum) to the
Programme Chairs ([log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask]) as
soon as possible but no later than 15th February 2006:

-Title of tutorial
-Tutorial speaker(s), including short CVs
-Motivation/Background (half a page)
-Structure/Overview of tutorial including topics covered
-Links and references relevant to the tutorial
-Any other relevant material
If accepted, the submitted material will be used for advertising the
tutorial as part of IEEE RO-MAN 06.

Special Sessions

IEEE RO-MAN 06 is inviting proposals for organized sessions. Please submit
the following information to the Programme Chairs ([log in to unmask]
and [log in to unmask]) as soon as possible but no later than 15th
February 2006:

-Organizer(s) of special session
-Proposed theme of special session
-One paragraph motivating the relevance of theme to IEEE RO-MAN 06
-List of 4-5 proposed contributions, including planned titles of papers,
names and affiliations of authors, and short abstracts of papers

Double special sessions (8-10 papers) will also be considered but should be
discussed with the programme chairs. If accepted, the organizers of the
special session are responsible for high-quality peer-review of the
submitted papers according to IEEE standards (2-3 anonymous peer-reviews,
using the RO-MAN 06 review criteria plus any additional criteria particular
to the special session). Additional reviewers will be acknowledged in the
proceedings.
