7th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2015)

October 26-30, 2015, Paris, France

Submission Deadline: June 1, 2015

The International Conference on Social Robotics brings researchers and 
practitioners together to report and discuss the latest progress in the 
field of social robotics. The ICSR conferences focus on the interaction 
between humans and robots and the integration of robots into our society.

The theme of the 2015 conference is "Individual Differences"

Robots will improve quality of human life through assistance, enabling 
for instance independent living or providing support in work-intensive, 
difficult and possibly complex situations. The conference aims to foster 
discussion on the development of computational models, robotic 
embodiments, and behaviour that enable social robots to have an impact 
on the degree of personalised companionship with humans.

The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically 
rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in the area of social 
robotics: Innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and 
improvements, novel applications on the latest fundamental advances in 
the core technologies that form the backbone of social robotics, 
distinguished developmental projects, as well as seminal works in 
aesthetic design, ethics and philosophy, studies on social impact and 
influence pertaining to social robotics, and its interaction and 
communication with human beings and its social impact on our society.

*The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:*

  * Robots with personality
  * Robots that can adapt to different users
  * Robots to assist the elderly and persons with disabilities
  * Socially assistive robots to improve quality of life
  * Affective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robots
  * Personal robots for the home
  * Social acceptance and impact in the society
  * Robot ethics in human society
  * Context awareness, expectation, and intention understanding
  * Control architectures for social robotics
  * Socially appealing design methodologies
  * Safety in robots working in human spaces
  * Human augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robots
  * Robot applications in education, entertainment, and gaming

Subissions must be made in the PDF format and follow the Springer 
LNCS/LNAI style for the layout. LNCS style templates are available on 
the Springer LNCS website. Full papers are limited to ten A4-sized 
pages, extended abstracts to two A4 pages. Detailed instructions for 
paper submission are available on the conference website. All papers 
will be refereed by the program committee.


Participants who would like to exhibit their interactive demonstrations 
at the conference site need to submit a one page summary about the 
demonstration. Exhibition booths will be allocated to demonstrations 
approved by the ICSR2015 organizing committee.


Participants are invited to hold a full/half day workshop on 26 October 
2015 on a topic relevant to social robotics and the general theme 
“Individual Differences”. Outlines of intended workshops are to be 
submitted by 15 June 2015.


A search for creative ideas about what a robot companion could be. This 
year we are accepting designs from practitioners from any discipline, 
and in any format. Selected designs, prototypes, performances or demos 
will be invited for exhibited at the conference.
