The 10th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2018)

November 28-30, 2018

Qingdao, China



Workshop proposal: July 1, 2018

Paper submission: July 31, 2018

Paper notification: Sept 22, 2018

Final camera-ready paper submission: Oct 7, 2018

Conference: November 28-30, 2018

The 10th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2018) brings
together researchers and practitioners working on the interaction between
humans and intelligent robots and on the integration of robots into the
fabric of our society.

The intersection of Social Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are
bound to disrupt the status quo in our homes, factories, healthcare
services, and transportation, among others. In the foreseeable future,
Social Robotics and AI will help drive economic growth and will be the new
normal. ICSR 2018 aims to foster discussions in the development of AI
models and  frameworks, robotic embodiments, and behaviors that further
encourages invention and innovation. The forum will look into the potential
of these technologies and give insights to address the challenges and risks.

The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically
rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in the area of social
robotics and AI: innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and
improvements, novel applications on the latest fundamental advances in the
core technologies that form the backbone of social robotics, distinguished
developmental projects, as well as seminal works in aesthetic design,
ethics and philosophy, studies on social impact and influence pertaining to
social robotics, and its interaction and communication with human beings
and its social impact on our society.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

Affective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robots

Context awareness, expectation, and intention understanding

Control architectures for social robotics

Human augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robots

Interaction and collaboration among robots, humans, and environments

Personal robots for the home

Robot applications in education, entertainment, and gaming

Robot ethics in human society

Robots that can adapt to different users

Robots to assist the elderly and persons with disabilities

Robots with personality

Safety in robots working in human spaces

Socially assistive robots to improve quality of life

Social acceptance and impact in the society

Socially appealing design methodologies


Submissions must be made in the PDF format and follow the Springer
LNCS/LNAI style for the layout. All papers will be refereed by the program
committee. Full papers are limited to ten pages. Detailed instructions for
paper submission are available on the conference web site. LNCS style
templates are available on the Springer LNCS website.


Participants are invited to hold a half day workshops and/or special
sessions on topics relevant to social robotics. Proposals on workshops and
special sessions will be considered by the organizing committee.


Social robot designs from practitioners from any discipline, and in any
format, and designs, prototypes, performances or demos selected by the
organizing committee will be invited for exhibition during the conference.


Participants who would like to exhibit their relevant products during the
conference site should submit a summary describing the demonstration.
Exhibition space will be allocated to those approved by the ICSR 2018
organizing committee.


The Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Social Robotics
(ICSR 2018) will be published by Springer International Publishing as part
of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (LNAI). The
proceedings of the conference are indexed by Springer Link and Scopus.
Selected papers will be invited for publication as a Special Issue in the
International Journal of Social Robotics (Fall 2019).
