The 13th annual Human-Robot Interaction Pioneers Workshop will be held in
Chicago, USA on Monday, March 5, 2018 in conjunction with the 2018 ACM/IEEE
International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction

Pioneers seeks to foster creativity and collaboration surrounding key
challenges in human-robot interaction and empower students early in their
academic careers. Each year, the workshop brings together a cohort of the
world's top student researchers and provides the opportunity for students
to present and discuss their work with distinguished student peers and
senior scholars in the field.

Pioneers is a premier forum for graduate students in HRI, thus we invite
students at any stage of their academic career to consider applying. To
facilitate attendance, we expect to provide financial support to accepted
students to help mitigate the costs of the workshop and main conference
