Trust is a fundamental component of social interactions to foster people's
acceptance of a robot for a successful and long-term Human-Robot
Interaction (HRI). At the same time, trust can be affected by several
factors, such as the incapability of a robot to adapt its behaviour to
people's needs, and a violation of privacy. This Session aims to explore
different aspects of Human-Robot Interaction that can affect, enhance,
undermine and recover humans' trust in robots, with a specific aim on
privacy concerns and mental models.
The session will focus on the impact of people's expectations, beliefs and
concerns on their trust in robots during a Human-Robot Interaction. In
particular, this session will bring together leading researchers in the
fields to share and discuss ideas and findings to guide the design and
development of robots that are able to effectively collaborate with human

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

·       Mental models in Human-Robot Interaction;

·       Measuring Trust in Human-Robot Interaction;

·       Trust Violation and Recovery Mechanism in HRI;

·       Trust and Assistive Robotics;

·       Enhancing Humans Trust in Robots;

·       Privacy and Trust in Human-Robot Interaction;

·       Mental models and their effects on Trust in HRI.
