Call for Papers


RO-MAN 2020 Workshop on Lifelong Learning for Long-term Human-Robot
Interaction (LL4LHRI)


ON 4 September 2020 - VIRTUAL 

** Extended versions are invited to be submitted to Frontiers Research Topic
on Lifelong Learning and Long-Term Human-Robot Interaction:
-term-human-robot-interaction **


==== Overview ====


Lifelong learning is an essential requirement for social robots since it
facilitates learning new concepts, situations, or abilities so that the
robots can "appropriately adapt [their] behavior to the social context" as
well as other contexts that may arise. The main objective of this first
workshop is to bring together a multidisciplinary group of researchers to
identify and address key challenges for studying long-term / lifelong
learning and its relevant aspects for social robotics in both lab and field.


==== Topics ====


We invite 6-page regular paper or 2-page position papers, using the RO-MAN
2020 format (see
php&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNGv1j3McNbg4xz_qtobZyDor0cgfw> ), from a wide range
of theoretical, experimental and methodological approaches, for studying
long-term/lifelong and longitudinal human-robot interaction. Suggested
workshop topics include, but are not limited to:


* Personalization and/or adaptation in lifelong HRI

* Modelling user(s) and/or user behavior(s) in multi-session(or long-term)
human-robot interactions

* Modelling robot behavior in multi-session (or long-term) HRI

* Modelling context in multi-session (or long-term) HRI

* Agent/robot architectures for personalization / adaptation

* Lifelong (long-term) human-agent interactions

* Lifelong (long-term) multimodal interaction

* Lifelong (long-term) multi-user/multi-agent interaction

* Continual/lifelong machine learning

* Development concerns, including deployment, scalability and complexity

* Tools and testbeds for evaluation of multi-session or long-term HRI

* Methodological challenges for achieving successful long-term HRI

* Metrics for evaluating long-term/lifelong HRI

* Deployed and/or emerging applications for long-term HRI (e.g., education,
entertainment, edutainment, elderly care, therapy, rehabilitation, etc.)

* User studies (longitudinal HRI studies, long-term user experience,
acceptability, preferences, etc.)

* Philosophical, legal and ethical considerations of long-term learning and
adaptation in HRI
