Dear Colleagues,

Social robots are intended to coexist with humans and engage in relationships that lead them to a better quality of life. The success of these relationships relies on a positive perception of the robots that can be achieved by their behavior through AI, computational models, or robot embodiments. This Special Issue aims to foster the development of innovative ideas, novel applications and relevant studies that contribute to the integration of social robots in our daily society.  

The Special Issue 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, and novel applications on advances in the social robotics technologies.

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
	• Real experiences with social robots
	• Assessing interaction in social robotics
