Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Social robots are intended to coexist with humans and engage in 
relationships that lead them to a better quality of life. The success of 
these relationships relies on a positive perception of the robots that 
can be achieved by their behavior through AI, computational models, or 
robot embodiments. This Special Issue aims to foster the development of 
innovative ideas, novel applications and relevant studies that 
contribute to the integration of social robots in our daily society.

The Special Issue 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, and novel applications on advances in the social robotics 

In addition, a series of workshops associated to “The Eleventh 
International Conference on Social Robotics” will be held in Madrid, 
Spain, on 26-29 November 2019. The authors of the papers that will be 
presented at these workshops about related topics are invited to submit 
their extended versions to this Special Issue after the conference. 
Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or 
review articles, with at least a 50% extension of new results.

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

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

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering 
and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to 
go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the 
deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be 
published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be 
listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review 
articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned 
papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the 
Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be 
under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference 
proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a 
single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant 
information for submission of manuscripts is available on the 
Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international 
peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a 
manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this 
open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should 
be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English 
editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
