accepted authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given the option to present remotely.

Call for Papers for Special track on Expression in Human-Robot Interaction


Robotics’ promises lives within people’s imagination, and their expectations have been fueled by media representations of machines with incredible capabilities and lifelike behavior. In recent decades, the rise of mobile robot technologies, including drones, vacuum cleaners, and autonomous cars, shows that these promises are closer to being fulfilled.

Part of people’s expectations relates to how robots express themselves, whether through complex facial gestures in realistic robots or simplistic but effective nods of machines that barely resemble heads. Understanding how to effectively express something to people is important and creates a relevant link with art as a whole. Sometimes, robots are created solely for artistic exhibitions, such as Sun Yuan and Peng Yu’s ‘Can’t Help Myself’, which intends to discuss the vulnerability of machines and their creators.

This proposal aims to bring together specialists in Human-Robot Interaction and AI Art to investigate the capabilities of artistic expression in and with robots, with the objective of exploring new interactive, aesthetic, and conceptual possibilities.
