Call for Submissions to the ICSR 2020 Workshop on Enriching HRI Research with Qualitative Methods

---------------------------------------
Send submissions to: [log in to unmask]
Workshop website: https://www.qualHRI.com
----------------------------------------
Important Dates
●      Deadline for submission: October 25, 2020 (AoE)
●      Acceptance notification: November 1, 2020
●      Workshop: 16 & 17th November 2020, 20:20-22:20 GMT
----------------------------------------

Overview
As robotic systems become more complex and move into real-world settings, it is increasingly recognised that qualitative approaches to HRI research are important for developing effective robots and understanding their real world impact. This workshop aims to bring together scholars with experience in applying qualitative methods, and those who would like to learn more about how HRI can be enriched by adopting qualitative approaches. We will ask participants to think about learning points and ‘top tips’ they can share based on their experiences, or to think about specific questions they have and problems they want help on during the course of the workshop. For all participants, the workshop offers an introduction to qualitative methods relevant to HRI, and an overview of methods currently applied by HRI scholars, including mixed-methods approaches.

The workshop will take place online, via the Zoom video conferencing platform. The workshop will include short talks from expert speakers, and "breakout sessions" to allow for discussion in smaller groups. We invite participants of all levels and backgrounds, from industry and academia. No prior knowledge or use of qualitative approaches is required.

Topics to be covered:


• Introduction to qualitative methods relevant to HRI
• Applying best practices and ensuring scientific rigour in qualitative approaches
• How to assess and recognise rigorous qualitative work
• Practical tips for conducting qualitative research
• Defending and publishing qualitative approaches and findings
• Teaching and promoting qualitative approaches
• Possible barriers to implementing qualitative approaches in HRI.


In addition to tips on how to assess and recognise rigorous qualitative research, the workshop will promote best practices and scientific rigour in qualitative research at various stages of the research process such as question conception, study design, and publication. Participants will be encouraged to think about how qualitative methods could be used to enhance their own research and/or the research of their students, and will have the opportunity to discuss potential challenges of implementing such approaches. The workshop offers a platform to connect novices and experts who are working with qualitative methods, stimulating discussion and sharing practical tips and literature resources.

----------------------------------------
Submission Details:
Workshop participants will give brief oral presentations (10 minutes max) on the relevance of qualitative methods to their work. The focus should be on ‘lessons learnt’ through the use of such methods, and discussion regarding practical tips and challenges.

Suggested topics include:


• Enriching HRI research with qualitative approaches


• Mixed-method experiments in HRI


• Applying best practices and ensuring scientific rigour in qualitative approaches


• How to assess and recognise rigorous qualitative work


• Practical tips for conducting qualitative research


• Defending and publishing qualitative approaches and findings


• Teaching and promoting qualitative approaches


• Possible barriers to implementing qualitative approaches in HRI.


To apply, authors should submit a (maximum) 500 word abstract for their talk, outlining specifically what they hope to share with the group. Abstracts can be provided in any format and should be sent to [log in to unmask] by the deadline date specified. The document should also outline any co-authors/collaborators, and their affiliation. Important: The workshop will now take place via the Zoom conferencing platform, so potential speakers should ensure they have access to the platform and a stable internet connection.
