CFP: Special Issue - User Experience in Human-Robot Interaction

Dear Colleagues,

Robots are entering the everyday life of humans, having a wide variety of purposes in all kinds of areas; domestic, public, educational, as well as vocational settings. Robots have been used for decades in certain areas, being placed in specialized safety zones in automated industrial settings, in which limited interaction with human users and restricted exposure to wider groups of users occurred. However, when robots are being embedded to a higher extent in human settings they act in shared physical and social spaces with humans. When human users, consisting of different and multifaceted user groups with various exposure and prior experience of robots, not necessarily skilled in robotics, are going to interact with robots the role and relevance of user experience becomes important. User experience refers to human users' perception, feeling, and behavior in using interactive systems, which also is applicable on robots.  The scope of user experience encompasses every part of the user's interaction with a robot; how it is perceived, learned, and used, and addresses methods, techniques, and practices for analysis, design, prototyping, and evaluation, having a focus on user-centered processes.

The aim of this special issue is to explore and share research that is connected to user experience in human-robot interaction. This include aspects, frameworks, and theories related concepts of user experience linked to human-robot interaction; principles, techniques, and methods in the user experience design process relevant for human-robot interaction; and addressing the complexity and challenges of the interdisciplinary nature of user experience in human-robot interaction.

We encourage authors to submit original research articles, case studies, reviews, theoretical and critical perspectives, and viewpoint articles on user experience in human-robot interaction, including the following topics, but not limited to:

-        Hedonic qualities

-        Pragmatic qualities

-        Well-being, health and eudaimonia

-        UX goals, requirements, and measures

-        Ethical and societal issues

-        Guidelines and heuristics for design

-        Psychology, learning, and cognition

-        Sustainability, accessibility, and diversity

-        Evaluation methods and techniques

-        Methods for and analysis of field studies

-        Implementation issues

-        Prototyping

-        Challenges and opportunities in doing interdisciplinary work

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 June 2021.
