Call: ICSR 2020 Workshop on Child-Robot Interaction: Present and Future Relationships

Call for Papers

Child-Robot Interaction: Present and Future Relationships
A Workshop at the 12th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2020)
November 14-16, 2020
Online
Workshop: https://sites.google.com/view/child-robot-interaction/
ICSR: https://sites.psu.edu/icsr2020/

KEY DATES:

Submission Deadline: October 16, 2020 (11:59 pm Anywhere on Earth)
Acceptance Notification: October 23, 2020
Camera-ready Deadline: October 30, 2020

ABSTRACT:

Robots will become more pervasive in society, playing different roles from tutors to physical therapy assistants to playmates, to name a few. The relationship between children and robots starts before the actual interaction. Researchers are faced with the question of when to involve children in this process. Children are cognitively immature, and their perspectives on robots are different from adults. How are children’s perceptions, expectations, and perspectives influencing the field, and how is CRI impacting children’s cognitive development? This half-day workshop aims to bring researchers, practitioners, and pioneers from relevant disciplines to this platform to have in-depth discussions on various aspects of CRI, such as potentials, challenges, and related opportunities to keep children in the loop.… read more. “Call: ICSR 2020 Workshop on Child-Robot Interaction: Present and Future Relationships”

Call: “The Social, Moral and Political Impact of Virtual Technology” online workshop

Call for Applications

Two-day international workshop on ‘The Social, Moral and Political Impact of Virtual Technology
22nd-23rd January 2021
Online

Submission deadline: 31st October 2020

This is a Call for Applications for a two-day international workshop on ‘The Social, Moral and Political Impact of Virtual Technology’, to be held fully online the 22nd-23rd January 2021, roughly 10:00-18:00 each day Chilean time.

In the third and final workshop on virtuality, this one will concentrate on some of the concrete social, moral and political impacts of virtual technology, now and going forward. With the high rise and influence of recent virtual technologies (such as social media and online gaming, as well as new virtual, augmented and mixed reality (VR, AR and MR respectively) technologies), understanding their various societal and other influences and effects is becoming increasingly pressing. With this in mind, abstracts (300-500 words) are welcome which seek to address any concrete social, ethical or political impact of a type (or types) of virtual technology.… read more. “Call: “The Social, Moral and Political Impact of Virtual Technology” online workshop”

Call: Trust in home: Rethinking interface design in the Internet of Things (THRIDI*) design workshop

Call for Participants

Trust in home: Rethinking interface design in the Internet of Things (THRIDI*) design workshop
19-20 November, 2020
Online
https://www.brunel.ac.uk/research/Projects/Trust-in-home-rethinking-interface-design-in-the-Internet-of-Things

Call closes: October 15
Participant selection: November 1

We would like to invite colleagues from all career stages (including PhD students) and all relevant fields (IoT, security, HCI, design, sociology, law, etc) for a two-day online design workshop “Trust in home: rethinking interface design in the Internet of Things (THRIDI)” on 19-20 November. The idea is to identify some of the gaps in design and regulation of UI for IoT technologies by co-designing the solutions for a range of hypothetical use cases in groups, which would hopefully lead to future research collaborations with colleagues from different disciplinary backgrounds.

IoT systems in smart homes present several privacy challenges. While GDPR creates a general duty for data controllers to implement privacy by default and privacy by design, this obligation requires taking into account the state-of-the-art.… read more. “Call: Trust in home: Rethinking interface design in the Internet of Things (THRIDI*) design workshop”

Call: Methodologies of Sonic Thinking (between Artistic Research and Phenomenology)

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Methodologies of Sonic Thinking (between Artistic Research and Phenomenology)
November 23 – 25, 2020
Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic

Keynote speaker: Bernd Herzogenrath (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Germany)
Main organizer: Martin Nitsche (CAS Institute of Philosophy, Prague, CZ)

Deadline for submission of abstracts: October 8, 2020

Human reasoning (incl. philosophy, language, arts, politics, leisure, etc.) is predominantly built on visual experience. Sonic thinking (a term that is gaining attention thanks to the volume edited in 2017 by our keynote speaker, Bernd Herzogenrath) challenges the primacy of visual and claims that human thinking should be transformed according to aural experience. Sonic research investigates our experience of sounds, music, rhythms, resonances, noises, and other sonic phenomena in order to describe configurations of human sense, which offer an alternative conception of human understanding to those maintained visually.

The conference aims to reflect upon sonic thinking as a specific way of research.… read more. “Call: Methodologies of Sonic Thinking (between Artistic Research and Phenomenology)”

The global novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has transformed the world as we know it, seemingly overnight. Every passing day bears witness to the best and the worst of humankind as we grapple with not only the health crisis, but also its reverberating impacts on every facet of society. We have seen countless examples of kindness, bravery and sacrifice among those who have done their part to assist their communities in stopping the spread of Covid-19. At the same time, displays of selfishness, greed and hateful behaviour of individuals and groups have punctuated the story of the world’s battle with Covid-19 with reminders of how truly awful people can be to one another.… read more. “Call: The Art of Being Inhuman: A Global Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference”
