Dear Colleagues

We are acting as Guest Editors of an open-access article collection on 
"Interaction in Robot-Assistive Elderly Care" in collaboration with the 
journal "Frontiers in Robotics and AI".

==== Submission Deadlines ====
27 July 2020: Abstract
25 November 2020: Manuscript

==== Topical Area ====
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

. Measurement and observations of interactions between older adults and 
human caregivers in elderly
   care that can be used for robotics systems
. Robotic technologies that facilitate interaction between older adults 
and human caregivers
. Supportive systems that facilitate interaction between older adults 
and robots
. Physiological monitoring and biofeedback systems for elderly care that 
have potential to install in
   robotics systems
. Cognitive architecture of social robots for elderly care
. Novel and creative applications of social robots for elderly care
. Exploration of the design of interactions between social robots and 
older adults
. Randomized controlled studies to investigate the effect of interaction 
with a social robot on older
. Field studies about interaction in robot-assistive elderly care
. Long-term studies about interactions between social robots and older 

==== Overview ====
This Research Topic aims to tackle scientific and technical advances in 
methods, models, techniques, algorithms, and interaction design that 
understand and facilitate both verbal non-verbal interaction (e.g. 
facial expression, gestures, and touch) between older people and 
caregivers/artificial systems.

In order to provide appropriate care, it is necessary to not only build 
an interaction model for older people but also deeply investigate the 
interactions between older adults and the caregiver. It is relevant to 
apply this to the development of cognitive architectures for social 
robots, and to the design of new ways of interaction between older 
adults and robots for person-centered care.

We focus on not only the theoretical aspects but also practical 
applications that address research issues related to verbal and/or 
non-verbal interaction between older adults and robotic systems. 
Particularly, we welcome contributions related to a measuring system to 
understand person-centered care, novel architecture for a social robot 
to achieve multimodal interaction with older adults and a design that 
facilitates interaction between older adults and robots. Furthermore, 
discussions of the ethical issues in elderly care with robotic systems 
are welcome.
