HRI 2016 Call For Papers

11th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2016)



Conference: March 7-10, 2016, Christchurch, New Zealand

Submission Deadline: October 2, 2015.




The 11th Annual ACM/IEEE HRI Conference theme is "Natural Interaction." The
conference seeks contributions from a broad set of perspectives, including
technical, design, methodological, behavioral, and theoretical, that advance
fundamental and applied knowledge and methods in human-robot interaction.
Full papers and Tutorial/Workshop abstracts will be archived in the ACM
Digital Library and IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Full details of the
submission types is provided on

Full Papers
Full papers are eight camera-ready pages, including figures. Accepted full
papers will be published in the conference proceedings and be presented in
an oral session.

To facilitate quality interdisciplinary reviewing, authors will be required
to select a theme for their full paper submission. These themes represent
different types of contributions to human-robot interaction and thus involve
different criteria for evaluating what constitutes a significant
contribution to the field. For a full description of themes and examples of
prior contributions see

Studies of Human-Robot Interaction theme includes naturalistic and
experimental studies of how humans and robots interact in real-world
settings or in experimental scenarios to establish new understanding,
principles, and design recommendations for human-robot interaction.
Theme Chairs: Takayuki Kanda (ATR, Japan), Tony Belpaeme (Plymouth Univ.,

Technical Advances in Human-Robot Interaction include contributions that
describe new robot systems, algorithms, and computational methods that
enable robots to better understand, interact with, and collaborate with
their users.
Theme Chair: Siddhartha Srinivasa (Carnegie Mellon Univ., USA)

Human-Robot Interaction Design involves research related to robot design
from a broad spectrum of design practices, including form, interaction, and
service design.
Theme Chair: Guy Hoffman (IDC Herzliya, Israel)

Theory and Methods in Human-Robot Interaction theme includes contributions
that provide novel ways of understanding and studying human interactions,
needs, and environments that will inform the development of robot
technologies, systems, and applications.

Theme Chair: Kerstin Fischer (Univ. of S. Denmark, Denmark)

Authors are encouraged to review the extended call for papers on the
conference website (

information regarding the themes, including theme specific
program-committee, examples of past publications, and evaluation criteria.
