OPEN FOR REGISTRATION (Early registration deadline : Jan. 31)

6th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2011)

March 6-9, 2011, Lausanne, Switzerland


To register for HRI2011, go to

HRI 2011 is the 6th Annual Conference for basic and applied human-robot 
interaction research. Scientists from across the world submit their 
bestwork and attend HRI to hear the latest theories, data, and videos 
from the world's best HRI researchers. Each year, the HRI conference 
highlights a particular area. The theme of HRI 2011 is *Real World HRI*. 
This theme is intended to highlight HRI in which basic scientific 
research is further tested in real world settings or applied to 
questions that arise in real world settings. One central aspect of this 
type of research, in contrast to other realms of applied research, is 
that it is theoretically driven and feeds back to our theoretical 
understandings. As such, real world research fortifies our understanding 
of people, robots, and interaction between the two.

HRI is a single-track, highly selective annual international conference 
that seeks to showcase the very best interdisciplinary and 
multidisciplinary research in human-robot interaction with roots in 
social psychology, cognitive science, HCI, human factors, artificial 
intelligence, robotics, organizational behavior, anthropology and many 
more, and we invite broad participation.
