Making robots articulate what they understand, intend, and do.
This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from different fields of robotics who work on robots that communicate. A robot's internal workings do not have to be identical to the human mind, but in order to communicate with untrained users, their behaviour (verbal and non-verbal) must be meaningful to humans.
Following this motivation, this workshop shall consolidate advances on verbalisation, articulation of internal processings, and multi-modal presentation techniques in robotics to achieve more intuitive and effective HRI.
Papers accepted for submission will be made available before the date of the workshop as PDF online-proceedings from this website.
Two inspiring keynote presentations are intended to provide a broader view on the subject with a focus on why robots need to express their internal processing, assumptions, and expectation in an intuitively comprehensible way.
Full papers are solicited to provide an in-depth view into state-of-the-art solutions on verbalisation and multimodal articulation of such processing. Short position papers will be given the possibility to report on ongoing research issues and late breaking results. A video session featuring interactive robots will conclude the workshop.
This workshop is organized in conjunction with the 2010 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2010), Anchorage, Alaska, May 3-8, 2010. The format is a full-day workshop.
The workshop will be held on Friday, May 7, 2010, in Egan Center Lower Level Room 9/10.
The workshop is supported by the EU FP7 ICT Integrating Project CogX - Cognitive Systems that Self-Understand and Self-Extend (FP7-ICT-215181-CogX).
