2nd Workshop on Cognitive Architectures for Social Human-Robot Interaction

In a follow-up to the first iteration of the workshop, I'm organising the next version of the workshop on Cognitive Architectures for Social HRI (with Greg Trafton and Severin Lemaignan). It will take place immediately before the International conference on Human-Robot Interaction, in Christchurch (New Zealand), on Monday the 7th of March 2016.

You can find all the necessary details on the workshop website.

The focus this time will specifically be on how social interaction (between robots and humans in particular, but not necessarily exclusively) can be supported by cognitive architectures - and what functions and mechanisms are required for this. To this end, we asking that all authors answer a set of six specific questions in their submissions, to provide a basis for comparison, and to initiate discussions as the workshop.

I hope to see you there!
