3rd International Conference on Human-Robot Personal Relationships
23-24 June 2010, Leiden University, The Netherlands
The 3rd International Conference on Human-Robot Personal Relationships (HRPR 2010) is organized and hosted by Leiden University. As its two prior editions, it is the main platform to present and discuss studies of personal relationships with artificial partners, their formation, their possibilities and their consequences. Such personal relationships are increasingly attracting attention from scientific fields as (social) robotics, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, psychology, philosophy, sociology.
Researchers, students and practitioners from all segments of the human-robot personal interaction community are invited to submit works and proposals related (but not limited) to the topics:
* original papers & position papers (4-8 pages, publ. in proceedings)
* extended abstracts (2 pages, published in proceedings)
* workshop proposals
* demonstrations of running system prototypes
* artistic installations (possibly combined with an extended abstract).
The language of the conference is English.
The city of Leiden (The Netherlands) is well known for its historic downtown with pretty canals, museums, famous university, and lively academic atmosphere. It was home to great painters such as Rembrandt and Jan Steen, and is located in the heart of the Dutch tulip-growing region only 20 minutes from Amsterdam international airport. The conference venue is Leiden University's historic Kamerlingh Onnes building, located on a canal in the city's historic quarter.
