Within the book series Advances in Interaction Studies the book "New Frontiers in Human-Robot 
Interaction" has been published, see the flyer

New Frontiers in HumanRobot Interaction

Edited by Kerstin Dautenhahn and Joe Saunders
The University of Hertfordshire

HumanRobot Interaction (HRI) considers how people can interact with robots in order to enable 
robots to best interact with people. HRI presents many challenges with solutions requiring a 
unique combination of skills from many fields, including computer science, artificial intelligence,
social sciences, ethology and engineering. We have specifically aimed this work to appeal to such 
a multi-disciplinary audience. This volume presents new and exciting material from HRI researchers 
who discuss research at the frontiers of HRI. The chapters address the human aspects of interaction,
such as how a robot may understand, provide feedback and act as a social being in interaction with 
a human, to experimental studies and field implementations of humanrobot collaboration ranging 
from joint action, robots practically and safely helping people in real world situations, robots 
helping people via rehabilitation and robots acquiring concepts from communication. This volume 
reflects current trends in this exciting research field.
