Paper submission and review process

The target audience for this workshop are researchers and practitioners in the HRI community, who are interested in the field of automated driving/vehicles. Beside that, we also invite HCI/UI designers (with affinity to the vehicle domain) and ADSs engineers that are interested in HRI. We invite participants to submit 1-4 page position papers (in the IEEE format used for the RO-MAN main conference) describing a crisp, self-contained problem in the field of the workshop. Successful submissions will have the potential to raise discussion, provide insights for other attendees, or illustrate problems and provide potential solutions. It is planned to accept a maximum number of 6 position papers.

All material must be submitted via Email to Andreas Riener on or before the submission deadlinePlease feel free to contact the organizers at any time.

The selection of workshop participants will be done by a review process. To guarantee fair decisions, experts from the broader field of the workshop theme will serve as reviewers. Submissions need not to be anonymous. Final decisions of accepting or rejecting a paper will be made by the organizers of the workshop based on the review scores and with respect to offering all workshop participants an interesting, diversified program.


Please format your paper according to the templates used for the RO-MAN main conference and provided by the IEEE Robotics and Automation society. Templates can be downloaded here:

Publication plans

Workshop position papers will be made available through the workshop website (subject to approval of authors). As special output, we strive for a special issue in a dedicated journal (e.g., IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine). Amongst open submission, workshop participants are invited to submit their articles to this special issue.
