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

March 6-9, 2011, Lausanne Switzerland


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

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

Full Papers

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format for
full and short papers. Eight camera ready pages including figures are
allowed for each full paper. Accepted full papers will be published in the
conference proceedings, archived in the ACM Digital Library, and be
presented in an oral session.

Late Breaking Reports

Authors are encouraged to submit their late-breaking results for short
papers. Two pages are allowed for each short paper. Accepted short papers
will be presented as a poster, but will be published in the conference

Video Session

We invite videos related to all aspects of HRI. Besides the importance of
the lessons learned and the novelty of the situation, the entertainment
value will be judged. The video itself must be self-explanatory for the
audience. The videos will be published in the conference proceedings and
archived in the ACM Digital Library.

Tutorials and Workshops

Proposals are sought from those wishing to organize a Tutorial or a Workshop
on a HRI-related theme. Tutorials and Workshops will be held on March 7, one
day before the main technical sessions.


There will be an exhibition site at the conference and promoters are
encouraged to display state-of-the-art products and services in all areas of
robotics and human-robot interaction.

Topics of interest include:

Socially intelligent robots

Robot companions

Lifelike robots

Assistive (health & personal care) robotics

Remote robots

Mixed initiative interaction

Multi-modal interaction

Long term interaction with robots

Awareness and monitoring of humans

Task allocation and coordination
