Call For Late-Breaking Reports, Demonstrations and Videos
10th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2015)
March 2-5, 2015, Portland, Oregon
The 10th Annual ACM/IEEE HRI Conference theme is “Broadening HRI: Enabling Technologies, Designs, Methods, and Knowledge.” The conference seeks contributions from a broad set of perspectives, including technical, design, methodological, behavioral, and theoretical, that advance fundamental and applied knowledge and methods in human-robot interaction. We particularly invite work that “enables” human-robot interaction through new technical advances, novel robot designs, new guidelines for design, and advanced methods for understanding and evaluating interaction.

Late-Breaking Reports and abstracts of the accepted demonstrations and videos will be published in the “extended abstracts” of the conference, a companion publication to the main proceedings of the conference, which is also archived in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore. Note that this has changed from previous years in which LBRs, Demos, and Videos appeared as part of the main proceedings. Authors of all accepted LBRs, videos, and demonstrations will retain the copyright for their work. LBRs and abstracts for demonstration and video submissions will follow the same guidelines as the other conference submissions, but will be limited to one page.

Full details of the submission types is provided on

Important Dates
8 December 2014: Submission of late breaking reports, demonstrations, and videos
23 December 2014: Notification of LBRs, demos and videos acceptance
3 January 2015: Final camera-ready versions due

Late Breaking Reports
Authors are encouraged to submit their Late-Breaking Reports in a short paper format, which is limited to two pages. Accepted Late-Breaking Reports will be presented at a poster session during HRI 2015. Guidelines for preparing LBRs can be found at

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 must be self-explanatory. The videos will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and be presented at a video session during HRI 2015. Authors are encouraged to follow the requirements and guidelines listed on the conference website ( for video size and formatting instructions.

We invite demonstration proposals for cutting-edge prototype systems that make interaction with robots more intuitive, seamless, and pleasant, or otherwise illustrate some human-robot interaction concept in an exciting and engaging way. Demos will be accepted on the technical and research importance of the work, as well as their suitability to a live demonstration. Please refer to the full guidlines at
