Call: INTERACT Workshop on connecting HCI and HRI research communities

Call for Participation: INTERACT Workshop
Monday 21 March 2016
Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK

Calling all UK researchers interested in potential links between HCI and HRI:

The University of Sheffield, in conjunction with The University of Nottingham and The University of Hertfordshire cordially invite you to the INTERACT workshop, which aims to connect the UK HCI and HRI research communities, and scope opportunities for future funding and collaboration.

While the fields of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) and Human-Computer Interface (HCI) share many perspectives, and have similar research goals, there is little cross-fertilisation. We are hosting this EPSRC-sponsored workshop as a first step to ‘working together’, triggered by discussions at their Future Intelligent Technologies consultation held last year.

We hope you can join us to:

  • Shape the future of this area
  • Identify opportunities for inter-disciplinary collaboration
  • Build new links
  • Gauge the interest in establishing a joint and novel community
  • Consider the potential for proposing an EPSRC Network

Dinner and accommodation will be provided on the night of the 21st March, along with a travel bursary up to a maximum of £40.

Places and funds will be allocated on a first come-first served basis, and are limited to 35 attendees.

WHEN: Monday, 21 March 2016 from 10:30 to 18:30 (GMT)
