VAM-HRI 2020 Program
HRI 2020 has decided to cancel its physical conference later this month in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. In light of this development, the organizers of VAM-HRI, collocated with HRI, has also decided to cancel the upcoming workshop. We will, however, not host a virtual event at the same time as HRI but instead we intend to find an alternate venue at which to host the workshop, after the global pandemic subsides, but hopefully long before HRI 2021.
The papers that have already been accepted to the workshop will be considered accepted by default at the later workshop unless authors choose to withdraw them. We will get in touch again as soon as we have any further details on the logistics. At this time the health and safety of our community is of utmost importance. Stay safe!
