Alt.HRI Call for Papers 2021:


The theme of this year for HRI’21 is “Bolder HRI”. Consequently, Alt.HRI aims to be even bolder, i.e. “Bolder Square.” Alt.HRI track is looking for the most audacious, creative and thought-provoking ideas supported by rigorous research that does not fit elsewhere. We aim to reach our colleagues from disciplines that aren't part of the mainstream of HRI yet and ask for the unexpected, the controversial, the creative, and the diverse. Alt.HRI 2021 aims to be unexpected, resilient, and bold according to the 2020ies zeitgeist. Alt.HRI studies can be described as radical, unique, provocative, inspiring, controversial, nonobvious, rare, unusual, and also relevant, rigorous, well-argued, and research-supported. Topics such as HRI and Art, aestheticism in robotics, critical HRI, speculative HRI, historical studies related to HRI, new methods in HRI, controversial methods in HRI, learning from small samples, robots and gender, sexism in robotics, feminism and robotics, robots and COVID, HRI in the lockdown, robots and racism, social justice, robot rights, robot ethics, robot laws, robot behaviours, robot and politics, robots and religion, against pseudoscience in HRI, fun studies in HRI, novel robot designs and implementations are possible in Alt.HRI. Of course, other controversial topics and approaches are also welcome. Alt.HRI papers aim to trigger meaningful and respectful discussions in the HRI community. Feel free to have a look at previously accepted papers in Alt.HRI in the conference programs HRI’20, HRI’19, HRI’18, HRI’17, HRI’16. Important Dates: Submission Deadline: 30th November 2020. Notification of Acceptance: 7th January 2021. Final Submission: 12th January 2021. Submissions will be rigorously double-blind peer-reviewed by a cohort of HRI experts from the most diverse backgrounds. Papers must be submitted via PCS. Accepted papers will be presented at the digital conference and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

In addition, the ACM has partnered with Overleaf, where authors can start writing using this link directly. Further details can be found in the HRI Conference website. Looking forward to hearing from the bolder researchers! ALT.HRI CHAIRS Kerstin Fischer, University of Southern Denmark, Eduardo B. Sandoval, University of New South Wales Twitter: @Alt_HRI
