The application process will open on October 10 and will continue through November 6, 2015 (11:59pm PST) November 20, 2015 (11:59pm PST).

Use the submission and review website of the HRI conference ( to submit the materials.

The HRI Pioneers Workshop will follow a review process in which submissions will be evaluated by a number of factors including:

We hope to achieve a diversity of research topics, disciplinary backgrounds, methodological approaches, and home institutions. As such, we do not expect more than two students to be invited per institution. In addition, we especially encourage groups traditionally underrepresented in computer science to apply.

Publication & Attendance

Accepted abstracts will be published alongside Late-Breaking Reports in the extended abstracts section of the main HRI conference proceedings, and archived in the ACM Digital Library. All authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend the Pioneers Workshop and the main conference poster session, at which they will present their work as a poster.

A detailed program for the workshop and the participation guidelines for the poster session will be available after the camera-ready deadline.
