Hands-on workshop on social touch in human-robot interaction

The workshop will be held on July 4th in conjunction with the Eurohaptics 2016 conference in London, UK.

Workshop homepage:

For more information about the Eurohaptics conference and registration (required for all workshop attendants)

see the conference website:<>.

Early bird registration ends May 16th.




The goal of this workshop is to spark interest in the topic of social touch, with a specific focus on social touch in

human-robot interaction. The workshop will start with an introductory lecture on how  findings from interpersonal touch

can be extended to, and applied in human-robot interaction. Thereafter, participants will work together on designing an (informal)

experiment in which a human subject interacts with a robot using touch. Small groups of participants will work on the design of

different parts of the experiment. The experiment will be run during the demo sessions at the main conference. Basic materials for

the experiment such as laptops, robots and video cameras will be provided.

Target audience:

People who are interested in the topic of social touch and the use of social touch in human-robot interaction (no prior experience needed).

Workshop participants will get hands-on experience in designing and evaluating an interaction scenario for the use of touch in human-robot interaction.
