CALL FOR WORKS IN PROGRESS: International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR) 2011, 24-25 NOV 2011, THE NETHERLANDS

International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR) 2011, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The International Conference on Social Robotics brings researchers and practitioners together to 
report on and discuss the state-of-the-art research in the field of social robotics. The conference
focuses particularly on social interaction between humans and robots, the integration of robots 
into our society, and the design of next generation social robot interfaces and systems.

The theme of the 2011 conference is "Alive!" It expresses the vitality of the social robotics 
research, paying particular attention to the development of robots that appear increasingly 
social -- the point that people perceive them to be alive. The conference aims to foster discussion
on the development of computational models, robotic embodiments, and behavior that enable robots 
to act socially and the impact that social robots have on people and their social and physical 

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

optionally as poster presentations.
