This workshop encourages designers, artists, writers, film-makers, architects, philosophers, psychologists, computer scientists, and engineers, to speculate on alternative metaphors for human-robot interactions. We aim to create a space for discussing different perspectives on how to design social robots that goes beyond the current, singular notion of social robots.
Deadlines and Registration
Authors are invited to submit a description of a new approach to Human-Robot Interaction through a Metaphor. Authors can choose one of the two submission formats: (1) 2-page position paper using latex or word templates; (2) pictorial work with a description of the Metaphor, including films, drawings/sketches, poems, stories, prototypes, hand-made models, or other creative pieces that were created by the authors. We welcome out of the box ideas. Submission materials should be emailed to robotmetaphors at gmail dot com and need to be accompanied by a short bio and the cv of the authors.
