The 8th annual Human-Robot Interaction Pioneers Workshop will be held in Tokyo, Japan on Sunday, 3 March
2013. Exploring HRI in a small, informal and welcoming manner,  HRI Pioneers is a premier venue for up-and-coming
researchers and will take place in conjunction with the 2013 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction
(HRI 2013). This highly selective workshop is designed to bring together a cohort of the world’s top student researchers. The
HRI Pioneers Workshop fosters creativity, communication and inspiration surrounding important issues and open-challenges in
the diverse field of human-robot interaction.

The format of the workshop will include: student presentations, group brainstorming activities and a poster session. A  key note
address and discussion panel will also take place with established senior researchers who will provide invaluable insights into the
current and future developments and practice of HRI.

Interested students, at any stage of their academic career, are encouraged to apply. Applications consist of 1) a two-page extended
abstract describing one specific research project or one coherent body of research from the applicant’s past, current or proposed
work, 2) a curriculum vitae, and 3) a letter of support from the applicant’s research supervisor. The application window will run
from 1 November to 1 December 2012, and applications will be reviewed by the HRI Pioneers Organizing and Program
Committees. The acceptance rate  for last year’s workshop was approximately 28%, and those selected will typically be granted
some financial support (travel and accommodation) to attend. Further details, including abstract samples and templates, are now
available on the workshop website at<>.

An overwhelming majority of past workshop attendees have gone on to phenomenal careers in academia, government, and
industry. HRI Pioneers is a one-of-a-kind collaboration, professional development, and networking opportunity spanning both
disciplinary and geographical boundaries. All interested students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity!
