This workshop encourages researchers to submit papers with theoretical frameworks, as well as empirical and case studies with practical applications. We invite submissions on the following topics, including (but not limited to):

  • Evaluation of human-robot interaction quality
  • Static/dynamic factors affecting human-robot interaction quality
  • Interaction modalities (verbal and non-verbal)
  • Understandable and explainable robots
  • Human factors affecting the quality of interaction in HRI
  • Human-centered design
  • Interaction dynamics in HRI
  • Theories, models, methodologies, and tools for evaluating quality of interaction in HRI
  • Objective measures for evaluating quality of interaction
  • Human-in-the-loop approaches
  • Engagement in socially assistive robots
