*Important Dates*

Submission Deadline: July 9, 2021 (AoE)

*Call for Submissions*

We invite researchers to participate in the first workshop on Child-Robot
Interaction for Beginners: Supporting New Researchers (CRIB 2021). This
workshop will provide a forum for experienced researchers in Child-Robot
Interaction to pass down their knowledge to researchers new to the field.
We welcome two types of submissions:


   Researchers with experience conducting research in Child-Robot
   Interaction should submit 2-page abstracts (excluding references) providing
   lessons learned, guidelines, advice, or experiences related to Child-Robot
   Interaction research

   Researchers new to the field of Child-Robot Interaction are welcome to
   submit 1-page questions, discussion points, or planned/ongoing research to
   be explored during the workshop

Selected submissions will be presented by the authors during the workshop,
with the opportunity for attendees to ask questions and engage in
discussion. Authors should keep in mind the objectives of the workshop as
stated below.

The objectives of the workshop are as follows:


   To discuss the highs and lows of conducting research in Child-Robot
   Interaction, sharing lessons and advice

   To develop a set of guidelines for new researchers in Child-Robot
   interaction, to act as a reference when designing and planning research

   To support the creation of a welcoming community of researchers in times
   when it may be difficult for junior researchers to reach out, and create a
   network of advice amongst senior and junior researchers who are currently
   or would like to conduct studies with children and robots

   To discuss different methodological approaches that experienced
   researchers use to conduct research in child-robot interaction, and arrive
   at key unified principles for research in this area

Keynote Speakers

Tony Belpaeme (Ghent University, Plymouth University)

Vicky Charisi (European Commission, JRC, Centre for Advanced Studies

Sofia Serholt (University of Gothenburg)


Submissions to this workshop can be within, but are not limited to, the
following themes in Child-Robot Interaction:


   Research methods

   Experimental design

   Interdisciplinary science

   Reproducible science

   Ethical concerns

Submissions should follow the IEEE two-column format, using one of the
following templates: MS-Word
or LaTeX
Submissions should be formatted as PDFs and submitted through EasyChair
