Submission deadline: 13th Jun 2021<>

Conference format: Hybrid


== General Information ==

The 13th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2021) brings together researchers and practitioners working on the interaction between humans and intelligent robots and on the integration of robots into the fabric of our society. ICSR 2021 will take place in Singapore as a hybrid conference on 10-13 November 2021. Accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings of the ICSR 2021 published by Springer LNAI series.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Robotics in our everyday lives’, emphasising on the increasing importance of robotics in human daily living.

The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in the area of social robotics and AI: 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.

Authors can submit the complete manuscripts in PDF format, or the use the LaTex or Word templates provided by Springer. Full manuscripts are limited to 12 pages. The front page must contain the title of the paper, full name(s) and address(es) of the author(s) and the appropriate academic field(s). All papers will be refereed by the program committee.
