    workshops

    • RO-MAN2020 - september 3

      Cognitive Robotics for interaction (CIRCE)

      Humans can easily collaborate with others, thanks to their capacity of understanding other agents and anticipate their actions. Robots, in order to be able to interact with humans in an efficient and natural way, need to have a cognitive architecture as well. The goal of the workshop is to provide a venue for researchers interested in the study of HRI, with a focus on cognition. It is an ideal venue to discuss about the open challenges in developing cognitive architectures for HRI, such as anticipation, adaptation, dyadic and group interaction, the human inspiration and the technological implementation of cognitive architectures by means of, among others, computer vision and machine learning techniques.

      Adapted intEraction with SociAl Robots

      The aim of this Workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners who are working on various aspects of social robotics and adaptive interaction. The expected result of the workshop is a multidisciplinary research agenda that will inform future research directions and hopefully, forge some research collaborations. 

    • SMC 2019 - october 7

      Adaptation and Personalization in Human-Robot Interaction

      Social robots are autonomous robots that interact with people by engaging in social-emotive behaviours, skills, capacities, and rules attached to their collaborative role. Creating robotic systems capable of correctly modelling and recognizing the human behaviour and of adapting their behaviour to the user is a very critical task, especially in the domain of assistive robotics and when working with vulnerable user populations.
