Vicky Charisi, researcher of the HUMAINT project, is co-organizing the ACM SIGCHI IDC2018 workshop on children's robotics and child-robot interaction.

ACM SIGCHI IDC2018 (Interaction Design and Children) Workshop
Title: The Near Future of Children's Robotics
Location: National  Trondheim, Norway
Date: 19 June 2018

We are please to invite you to participate in our full-day workshop on Child-Robot Interaction at the ACM SIGCHI IDC 2018, in Trondheim, Norway.

This full-day workshop aims to bring together researchers from all disciplinary backgrounds who are working on Child-Robot Interaction and on the design of Children's Robotics in order to reflect on the current state of this young field and to consider its 3-5 year "near future" outlook.

The workshop addresses the following topics:

  • Reflections on recent or in-progress work and how it illuminates one or more current or near-future potentials and challenges for Child-Robot Interaction as a field.
  • Exploration of a specific theory, methodology, or practice in current Child-Robot Interaction research, and its perceived potential (or shortcomings) as a tool to meet future challenges in this area.
  • Is there (or can there be) a unified field of 'child-robot interaction' across disciplines? What does that mean for future work that includes both children and robots?
