Call For Papers

Works-in-progress Papers

The *Works-In-Progress* track welcomes research contributions in early stages of development. The four-page contributions will be made available to the attendees of the conference in the conference USB drive, but will not be archived, thus, allowing authors to maintain the copyright of their work until full publication. The WIP presentations will be made in the form of brief talks and optionally as poster presentations. 

For more details, please refer to the WIP pdf.

Full Papers

The conference welcomes rigorous, original research work that makes scientific, technical, and/or philosophical contributions. Submissions will be evaluated for scientific and intellectual merit through a rigorous peer-review process. Authors of top papers will be invited to expand their work for publication in the International Journal of Social Robotics. We encourage multidisciplinary work that combines knowledge and methods from computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, psychology, sociology, anthropology, design, and philosophy. We also encourage the integration of scientific and practical perspectives such as how social robots might improve practices in health, wellbeing, rehabilitation, and education. Studies may report on technological developments, innovative ideas, new discoveries, and practical applications.

Submission of Papers:

Submissions must be made in the PDF format and follow the Springer LNCS/LNAI style for the layout. LNCS style templates are available on the Springer LNCS website. Full papers are limited to ten A4 sized pages. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. In addition, electronic versions will be published on the Springerlink platform
