Dear Members of the Robotics Community,

Please encourage your students or early career researchers to submit an application to the upcoming Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Pioneers Workshop.

We plan to accept approximately 25 students and early career researchers to the workshop.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with the HRI 2010 conference (March 2, 2010), which will be held on March 3-5, 2010, in Osaka, Japan.

Applications are due on 18 December 2009. Details can be found on in an enclosed file (pdf), or the workshop's website: http://hripioneers.org.

Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Pioneers Workshop 2010

----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: 
  
The field of human-robot interaction is new but growing rapidly. While there are now several established 
researchers in the field, many of the current human-robot interaction practitioners are students or recently 
graduated. This workshop, to be held in conjunction with the HRI 2010 conference, aims to bring together this 
group of researchers to present their current research to an audience of their peers in a setting that is less 
formal and more interactive than the main HRI conference; to talk about the important issues in their field and 
hear about what their colleagues are doing. Participants are encouraged to actively engage and form 
relationships with others by discussing topics in HRI and by engaging in hands-on group activities. 
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
WORKSHOP FORMAT: 
  
The format of the workshop will have: 
1) participants presenting their work in short talks. 
2) hearing from an expert in the field on the important problems in HRI.  
3) meeting in small group sessions to design a HRI experiment. 
  
The workshop will take place in March 2010, in Osaka, Japan in conjunction with the HRI 2010 Conference. 
Potential participants are encouraged to submit an abstract of their current research, a statement of motivation, 
and a letter of recommendation by Friday, December 18, 2009. See the webpage http://www.hripioneers.org 
for more details about the application.
