At VAM-HRI we seek to bring together HRI, Robotics, and AI, researchers working on challenges in mixed reality interactions between humans and robots. VAM-HRI was held for the first time at HRI 2018, where it served as the first workshop of its kind at an academic AI or Robotics conference, and served as a timely call to arms to the academic community in response to the growing promise of this emerging field. VAM-HRI 2020 is looking to follow on the success of the last two years, and welcomes contributions on topics including but not limited to:
|Identification of novel HRI problems that can benefit from emerging AR/VR/MR technologies|
|AR/VR/MR-based intention communication|
|AR/VR/MR-based behavior explanation|
|AR/VR/MR for robot testing and diagnostics|
|AR/VR/MR for HRI human-subject experimentation|
|Efficient representations for AR/VR/MR interaction patterns|
|AR/VR/MR language grounding|
|AR/VR/MR-augmented natural language generation|
|AR/VR/MR-enabled robot control|
|Architectures for AR/VR/MR-based HRI|
|AR/VR/MR for expanding social interactions|
FULL PAPERS: 6-8 page papers presenting novel work.
EXTENDED ABSTRACTS: 2-4 page papers presenting previous, current, or proposed work.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE/REJECTION: TBA / Before the HRI 2020 early registration deadline.
All papers must be submitted in PDF format and conform to the ACM SIG proceedings specifications. Please note that we are following the general ACM SIG format, not the SIGCHI format. Authors should use the sample-sigconf.tex or interim_layout.docx template files.
Papers will undergo mutual review; as such, authors of submitted papers will be expected to provide a small number of reviews for fellow authors. All accepted papers will be accompanied by talks and/or poster presentations and will be archived on the workshop website.
