Responsible Robotics workshop: Robots with and for society
In the context of the international conference RO-MAN 2022 “31st IEEE International Conference on Robot and Human Interactive Communication”, the European funded project Robotics4EU will organise the workshop RESP-R “Responsible Robotics: Robots with and for society”. This workshop aims to contribute to the exchange of knowledge between academia and industry on how to better design responsible robots, but also on how to assess the acceptance of these robots by society. This event will bring the opportunity to continue the dialogue on responsible robotics: issues, stakes, impact, good practices, etc.
Robotics4EU consortium members will share the main takeaways gathered in our numerous previous consultation activities (more than 2,000 stakeholders, incl. 700 citizens consulted) and present the intermediate version of the maturity assessment model.
Above all, the floor will be given to the audience and invited experts to debate on the topic, and share their own experience. A panel discussion with external experts will shed light on works on design and assessment methods, and polls and interactive activities will allow direct interaction with the audience.
We fully hope to meet you at RO-MAN, either as a member of the audience or as a selected author.
CALL FOR PAPERS
This call for papers aims to encourage the dissemination of innovative tools, actions, and strategies for enhancing the acceptance of robots by society.
This year’s RO-MAN conference theme is robots and human interactive communication, it covers a wide range of topics related to Robot and Human Interactive Communication, involving theories, methodologies, technologies, empirical and experimental studies. Papers related to the interdisciplinary and SSH study of robotic technology, psychology and cognitive science, artificial intelligence, human factors, RRI, ethics, regulation and policies, interaction-based robot design and other topics related to human-robot interaction are welcome.
The workshop RESP-R will engage in a dialogue on responsible robotics. We specifically invite contributions that propose new empirical, theoretical, and methodological insights and approaches to responsible robotics from across the globe.
Topics can include, but are not limited to:
- Responsible robotics (good practice, assessment, issues, etc.)
- Ethical issues relative to AI-driven robotics
- Diversity and gender in robotics
- Socio-economic and social inequality issues
- Acceptance/adoption of robotics
- Legal, policy and regulation issues
- Assessment of trust and trustworthiness
- Engagement of society
- Maturity of AI-driven robotics
Selected papers will be invited to be presented at the workshop, with the aim to submit them to a Special Issue (TBC).
