Call For Late-Breaking Reports, Videos, Demos, alt.HRI, Student Design Competition

15th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2020)
March 23-26, 2020
Cambridge, UK
http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2020/

Submission deadline: December 10, 2019

The ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction is a premier, highly-selective venue presenting the latest advances in Human-Robot Interaction. The 15th Annual HRI conference theme is “Real World Human-Robot Interaction”. The conference seeks contributions from a broad set of perspectives, including technical, design, behavioural, theoretical, methodological, and metrological, that advance fundamental and applied knowledge and methods in human-robot interaction.

LATE-BREAKING REPORTS

December 10, 2019: Submission deadline (23:59 PDT)
January 3, 2020: Notification of acceptance
January 8, 2020: Final camera-ready deadline

The Late-Breaking Reports (LBR) venue at HRI provides authors with the opportunity to present their work and receive feedback over exciting cutting-edge and experimental research to the community. It is also an excellent opportunity for researchers new to the field to participate in the conference.

All LBR submissions will undergo blind peer-review and will be published in the companion proceedings of the conference, and will appear in both the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore. The authors will not retain the copyright of their work. LBRs will be presented at a poster session during the main conference.

More details, including submission guidelines, templates, and mutual review requirements can be found at http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2020/late-breaking-reports/.

Late-Breaking Reports Chairs:
Daniel Szafir (University of Colorado Boulder, USA)
Daniel Rea (University of Manitoba, Canada)
Patrícia Alves-Oliveira (ISCTE-IUL, INESC-ID, Cornell University, Portugal and the US)

VIDEOS

December 10, 2019: Submission deadline (23:59 PDT)
January 3, 2020: Notification of acceptance
January 8, 2020: Final camera-ready deadline

We invite videos related to all aspects of HRI. The videos must be self-explanatory for the audience, of scientific relevance, and fun to watch. A peer review process will judge videos on content, lessons learned, novelty, and entertainment value. Accepted video abstracts will be published in the companion proceedings of the conference and archived in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore. See the website for additional resources and details on how to submit: http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2020/authors/videos/

Video Chairs:
Astrid Rosenthal-von der Puetten, RWTH Aachen University
Laura Hoffmann, Bielefeld University

DEMONSTRATIONS

December 10, 2019: Submission deadline (23:59 PDT)
January 3, 2020: Notification of acceptance
January 8, 2020: Final camera-ready deadline

The HRI 2020 conference will offer the opportunity to demonstrate innovative ideas and advances in human-robot interaction. We invite demonstration proposals for cutting-edge systems that make interaction with robots more intuitive, seamless, and pleasant, or otherwise illustrate some aspect of human-robot interaction in an exciting and engaging way.

See the website for additional resources and details on how to submit: https://humanrobotinteraction.org/2020/demonstrations/

Demonstration Chairs:
Andra Keay, Silicon Valley Robotics USA
Elin Anna Topp, Lund University SWEDEN
Takamasa Iio, University of Tsukuba JAPAN

STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION

December 10, 2019: Submission deadline (23:59 PDT)
January 3, 2020: Notification of acceptance
January 8, 2020: Final camera-ready deadline

For this year’s 15th Annual HRI Conference, we are continuing the Student Design Competition. The competition has two primary goals:

To provide graduate, undergraduate, and high school students with a hands-on introduction to HRI through a team-based design project.

To engage students of diverse backgrounds working in technical, art/design, or social science disciplines.

Building upon this year’s conference theme of real world human-robot interaction, student teams will develop interactive robotic objects to be interacted with in everyday life. We encourage teams to identify and focus on a particular interaction context, develop their own interactive robotic objects, and create scenarios that illustrate how their robots fit within the lives of the humans involved. The competition therefore focuses less on demonstrations of technical proficiency, and more on the design of compelling interactions that inspire, surprise, and delight.

ALT.HRI

November 10, 2019: Deadline to notify chairs of intent for non-English submission
December 10, 2019: Submission deadline (23:59 PDT)
January 3, 2020: Notification of acceptance
January 8, 2020: Final camera-ready deadline

alt.HRI invites high-quality submissions that push the boundaries of human-robot interaction research and that have high potential for impact. The goal for alt.HRI is to broaden the scope of research presented at HRI 2020. With this in mind, alt.HRI aims to be inclusive of perspectives and methodologies relevant to HRI but perhaps less commonly seen at the annual HRI conference, including strong HRI-related work from other fields. We also invite creative and thought-provoking work that might not otherwise be featured at the conference because it transcends established contribution criteria. Submissions will be rigorously peer-reviewed, in a double-blind fashion.

To invite wider multi-cultural diversity of contributions,** alt.HRI will accept paper submissions in authors’ native languages in the initial review phase. Authors must e-mail the alt.HRI chairs with their intention to submit non-English work no later than November 10**, along with optional suggestions for potential reviewers with the desired language ability. The chairs cannot guarantee full reviews in any native language, so Non-English submissions must include an English-translated version attached for English-speaking reviewers, and the two versions must be sufficiently identical in content. Accepted papers are expected to orally presented in the main program and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

This year’s edition of alt.HRI encourages contributions highlighting the potential for HRI research that emerges from collaboration with the artistic community. See the website for additional information for preparing alt.HRI submissions: http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2020/authors/alt-hri/

David St-Onge (École de Technologie Supérieure, Canada)
Hirotaka Osawa (Tsukuba University, Japan)
Sean Andrist (Microsoft Research, USA)
