Symposium Overview

Within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction and Human-Robot Interaction, the past few years 
have witnessed a strong upsurge of interest in the more personal aspects of human relationships 
with these artificial partners. This upsurge has not only been apparent amongst the general public,
as evidenced by an increase in coverage in the print media, TV documentaries and feature films, 
but also within the academic community.

The symposium welcomes submissions on the following topics, inter alia: 

	Robot Emotions 
	Humanoid Robots
	Clone Robots
	Entertainment Robots
	Robot Personalities
	Intelligent electronic sex hardware
	Gender Approaches
	Affective Approaches
	Psychological Approaches
	Sociological Approaches
	Philosophical Approaches
