This year, the IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication (RO-MAN) for 2016 will be held from August 26 – 31, 2016 at Columbia University, Teachers College in New York City! The conference will highlight productive working partnerships between humans and robots by convening the theme of Human-Robot Collaboration that includes robotic use in research and design, and the development of robots that interact collaboratively with humans, and support human-human collaboration.
This coming year is the 25th anniversary of RO-MAN, and the organizing committee would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the progress that has been made in the robots/robotics field, as well as examine how the area of robotics is evolving in the areas of robot designs; interfaces and interaction modalities; robot autonomy and teleoperation; robot expressiveness; interaction kinesics; social/emotional learning and skill acquisition by robots; and design of best practices when optimizing for human-robot interaction.
In addition, the conference will explore new, broader definitions of robots/robotics, such as, robotic devices that augment human performance (both physically and mentally), architecture/platforms for operating robots, robots in space, ubiquitous robots, crowdsourcing human-robot interaction based on interaction style, virtual robot apps and virtual humans for future robot applications in education, robots in healthcare services, exoskeleton bionic devices, role of data analytics and robots, and implementing sophisticated cognitive mental models in robots.
