Hello Everyone, 

We are happy to invite you to submit a paper to our upcoming full-day online workshop at IEEE Ro-Man 2022 . The “Towards Socially Intelligent Robots In Real-World Applications: Challenges And Intricacies” (SIRRW) workshop is your opportunity to present your work and get an overview of state-of-the-art research in human-centered, real-life settings. 

Researchers from all HRI/Cognitive robotics/Machine Learning-relevant fields are invited to submit a 2-pages abstract or a 4 pages short-paper, before June 30th July 15th , 2022 . Selected papers will be presented as either an oral presentation or in a poster session.

Being proactive, trustworthy, and dealing with uncertainty are the current challenges faced by social robots in real-world applications. To be seamlessly integrated into human-populated environments, robots will be expected to have intelligent social capabilities on top of their physical abilities. Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence has a critical role in providing robots with such capabilities by addressing some of the complex computational challenges that naturalistic human-robot interactions introduce. For a robot to behave proactively and in a manner that is appropriate to the context of interaction, it should cope with uncertainty when dealing with elements that are not fully observable and often hard to predict, such as the states representing the dynamic environment and humans. To build trustworthy interactions with humans, intelligent social robots need to successfully address challenging issues such as predicting human intentions, goals, expectations, understanding, and reasoning about the dynamic states of objects and other smart devices in the surroundings, and previous actions and their consequences while performing in complex situations. Trust is an important construct for evaluating adaptive social robot behaviors that could be inferred and evaluated through objective measures using computational models and subjective measures by human users. Such measures can be used to assess humans’ disposition to be vulnerable around robots. Hence, addressing uncertainty is a key factor in developing trustworthy AI solutions and endowing robots with intelligent social capabilities.
