------------------------ Apologies for multiple postings

Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased to invite you to submit your work at the fifth edition
of our workshop on Behavior Adaptation, Interaction and Learning for
Assistive Robotics - BAILAR 2021.

This workshop is held in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference
on Robot and Human Interacti
 (RO-MAN 2021
Both the workshop and main conference will be held virtually. The Workshop
will be held on August 8th.

Read below further information, and please do not hesitate to contact us if
you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Mariacarla Staffa

on behalf of BAILAR Organizing Committee

Important Dates

Deadline for Paper Submission: June 15th, 2021

Paper Acceptance Notification: June 30th, 2021

Camera Ready Paper: July 20th, 2021

Main Conference Date: August 8th–12th, 2021

Workshop Date: August 8th, 2021 (Full-day)

Target Audience

This workshop is intended as a forum for a broad audience, which spans from
social and assistive robotics, to user-profiling, machine learning and
robot behavior control. It will constitute a unique opportunity to gather
roboticists and cognitive and computer scientists to present a variety of
current approaches aiming at endowing social assistive robots with adaptive
and learning capabilities, enhanced cognitive and social abilities, and
discuss their potential to meet these criteria. This will permit us to
analyze the current state of the field and of its possible real-world
applications in assistive robotics.

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

   -    Social and Assistive Robotics
   -    User Profiling and Personalization in HRI
   -    On-line Learning and Adaptation
   -    Activity, Intention and Emotion Recognition
   -    Cognitive Robotics Architectures in HRI
   -    Decision Making and Planning
   -    Multimodal Communication in HRI
   -    Mutual Affective Understanding in HRI
   -    Psychophysiological Monitoring and Assessment
   -    Acceptability, Trustworthiness and Ethics in HRI
   -    Security and safety in HRI
   -    Brain-Computer interfaces for HRI
   -    Theory of Mind in Robotics
   -    Metrics for HRI Quality
   -    Explainability and Transparency in HRI

Submission Guidelines

We welcome prospective participants to submit either full papers (up to 6
pages) or extended abstracts (up to 2 pages). Papers can be on research
that the authors have already conducted, but we especially encourage papers
on new ideas or research that the authors plan to conduct.

We strongly encourage Workshop participants to present during paper
presentation demos and videos showing their experiments and achievements.

The extended versions of the accepted papers will be invited to a high

The manuscripts should conform to the RO-MAN 2021 guidelines (links: Word
, LaTeX
Each paper will receive a minimum of two reviews. Accepted papers require
that at least one of the authors register to the workshop.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by two reviewers. The abstracts of
the accepted papers will appear on the workshop website.

Authors will be able to submit a PDF copy through EasyChair.
