ICSR 2015: International Conference on Social Robotics

26th to 30th October 2015, Paris, France

The International Conference on Social Robotics brings researchers and practitioners together to report and discuss the latest progress in the field of social robotics. The ICSR conferences focus on the interaction between humans and robots and the integration of robots into our society.

The theme of the 2015 conference is "Individual Differences"

Robots will improve quality of human life through assistance, enabling for instance independent living or providing support in work-intensive, difficult and possibly complex situations. The conference aims to foster discussion on the development of computational models, robotic embodiments, and behaviour that enable social robots to have an impact on the degree of personalised companionship with humans.

The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in the area of social robotics: 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:

Robots with personalityRobots that can adapt to different usersRobots to assist the elderly and persons with disabilitiesSocially assistive robots to improve quality of lifeAffective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robotsPersonal robots for the homeSocial acceptance and impact in the societyRobot ethics in human societyContext awareness, expectation, and intention understandingControl architectures for social roboticsSocially appealing design methodologiesSafety in robots working in human spacesHuman augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robotsRobot applications in education, entertainment, and gaming
