Robots in the Wild: Exploring Human-Robot Interaction in Naturalistic Environments

Special Issue of INTERACTION STUDIES
published by John Benjamins Publishing Company

Submission Deadline ***15 September 2008***

Interaction Studies is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes original, high-quality research on social behaviour and communication in biological and artificial systems.

This special issue encourages submissions on original research findings involving situations where robots and people interact with each other socially 'in the wild', i.e. outside laboratory conditions. Such naturalistic environments may include:

- robot assisted search and rescue (e.g. in urban or wilderness environments)
- robots in museums and public spaces
- robot assisted play for therapy or education
- service robots and robot companions in real home settings
- human-robot interaction in artistic contexts
- human-robot interaction in hospitals, schools, nurseries etc.
- others

This special issue aims to report on the latest research findings in this field, as well as point out the key challenges (and possible ways to address some of these) that such naturalistic environments pose in terms of methodological, technical and other aspects.

The submission of research not involving interactions between physical robots and people are discouraged.

Authors should consider the interdisciplinary readership of IS and prepare their manuscripts accordingly.

Authors may either submit full papers or short research reports. See the journal's homepage for guidelines on the suggested length and formatting of the manuscripts:
http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_seriesview.cgi?series=IS

Authors who intend to submit a manuscript are encouraged to contact K.Dautenhahn@herts.ac.uk as soon as possible in order to ensure that the planned submission falls within the aims and scope of the special issue.

Please submit the journal manuscripts by 15 September 2008 to K.Dautenhahn@herts.ac.uk in PDF only. All articles will be peer-reviewed.
