The workshop will take place on the campus of EPFL in BC04. Posters can be be set up for the entire day in the exterior hall starting at 8:30AM.
The field of human-robot interaction is new but growing rapidly. While
there are now several established researchers in the field, many of the
current human-robotic interaction practitioners are students or recently
graduated. This workshop, to be held in conjunction with the HRI 2011 conference
, aims to bring together this group of researchers to present their current research to an audience of their peers in a setting that is less formal and more interactive than the main HRI conference; to talk about the important issues in their field; and to hear about what their colleagues are doing. Participants are encouraged to actively engage and form relationships with others by discussing fundamental topics in HRI and by engaging in hands-on group activities.
Participants will hear short presentations on current research from 6
selected participants, with time allotted for questions
and discussion after each of these talks. Participants not
allocated to oral presentations are encouraged to discuss their
research with others throughout the day, such as during the ice breaker
game, at lunch, during breaks, etc.
Following this, a panel of senior HRI researchers from both academia and
industry will field questions from participants. These discussions
may continue over lunch in smaller groups.
In the afternoon, a hands-on breakout session will involve small
group projects in which participants will investigate how to design a HRI
experiment. Afterward, the groups will present a summary to the entire
The workshop will take place on March 6, 2011, in Lausanne, Switzerland, in
conjunction with the HRI 2011 conference.
