Workshop on Embodied Communication of Goals and Intentions, at ICSR 2013, Bristol, UK
October 27th, 2013
Submission deadline: August 31, 2013

INVITED SPEAKERS: Kerstin Dautenhahn, University of Hertfordshire
Marc Hanheide, Lincoln University
Frank Broz, University of Plymouth

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different fields working on robots that communicate with humans. The focus is on human-robot interaction and on embodied communication of goals and intentions. It is assumed that there is a strong influence of action performance, gazing behaviour, spatial arrangement and spatial flow of action to infer goals and intentions from humans. Learning and understanding in a social context should not be considered as an one-sided process. Thus, it is interesting to study situations from the perspective of both the learner's and the teacher's perspective.
In this workshop, the intention is to investigate the challenges posed by such complex interaction systems from different research perspectives. Therefore, we will host talks given by researchers with different backgrounds. The aim is to report on the state-of-the-art and promote the exchange of ideas on how to enable a robot to interact with a human in a more natural way so that it can directly learn from human instruction.
