Hello all,

We are extending our deadline to April 15th for abstracts submissions for our special topic issue, Novelty Effects in Human-Robot Interaction, in Frontiers in Robotics and AI. If you have any questions about the issue or would like to chat about an idea you want to submit, please feel free to reach out. See the call for papers below for details:

Research on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) has long acknowledged the existence of the novelty effect, positive and robust interactions due to the newness and uniqueness of engaging with a robotic interactor. As most participants in HRI research have little experience with robots or robotic behaviors, the novelty effect of that interaction will impact the other basic and complex effects of the robotic behaviors and qualities that HRI researchers examine. Thus, it is likely that any measured outcome of a human-robot interaction is influenced, at least in small part, by the novelty effect.
To advance our understanding of the novelty effect in HRI, we are seeking research articles from leaders in the HRI community to be collected as a special Research Topic in the Journal Frontiers in Robotics and AI. The goal of the collection is to address current knowledge gaps on the novelty effect in HRI by: (1) presenting current empirical research that demonstrates the presence and impact of the novelty effect in human-robot interactions; (2) providing methodological guidance on study design and measurement to account for and identify novelty effect in HRI research, and (3) collecting theoretical accounts of the roles and impact that the novelty effect plays in human-robot interaction.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, work that:

กด Examines changes in outcomes over time that explicitly include novelty effects in describing those changes
กด Compares novelty effects across different modes of interaction, type of activity, or length of time
กด Describes methods for controlling for novelty effects or for incorporating novelty effects as part of the research design
กด Implements or describes methods for measuring and identifying novelty effects
กด Defines novelty effects, and provides a cognitive or psychological basis for these effects
กด Examines novelty effects in relation to other HCI/HRI issues such as technology adoption and habituation, or examines how other disciplines inform our understanding of novelty effects
กด Describes the role of novelty effects in designing for short and long-term interactions

Deadline for Abstracts is April 15th and full manuscripts is June 30th, 2021.
