Call For Papers
The 10th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2018) brings together researchers and practitioners working on the interaction between humans and intelligent robots and on the integration of robots into the fabric of our society.

The intersection of Social Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are bound to disrupt the status quo in our homes, factories, healthcare services, and transportation, among others. In the foreseeable future, Social Robotics and AI will help drive economic growth and will be the new normal. ICSR 2018 aims to foster discussions in the development of AI models and frameworks, robotic embodiments, and behaviors that further encourages invention and innovation. The forum will look into the potential of these technologies and give insights to address the challenges and risks.

The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically rigorous scientific and philosophical advances in the area of social robotics and AI: innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and improvements, novel applications on the latest fundamental advances in the core technologies that form the backbone of social robotics, distinguished developmental projects, as well as seminal works in aesthetic design, ethics and philosophy, studies on social impact and influence pertaining to social robotics, and its interaction and communication with human beings and its social impact on our society.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

    Affective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robots
    Context awareness, expectation, and intention understanding
    Control architectures for social robotics
    Human augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robots
    Interaction and collaboration among robots, humans, and environments
    Personal robots for the home
    Robot applications in education, entertainment, and gaming
    Robot ethics in human society
    Robots that can adapt to different users
    Robots to assist the elderly and persons with disabilities
    Robots with personality
    Safety in robots working in human spaces
    Socially assistive robots to improve quality of life
    Social acceptance and impact in the society
    Socially appealing design methodologies

Submission of Papers

Submissions must be made in the PDF format and follow the Springer LNCS/LNAI style for the layout. All papers will be refereed by the program committee. Full papers are limited to ten pages. Detailed instructions for paper submission are available on the conference web site. LNCS style templates are available on the Springer LNCS website.


Participants are invited to hold a half day workshops on topics relevant to social robotics. Proposals on workshops and special sessions will be considered by the organizing committee.


Social robot designs from practitioners from any discipline, and in any format, and designs, prototypes, performances or demos selected by the organizing committee will be invited for exhibition during the conference.


Participants who would like to exhibit their relevant products during the conference site should submit a summary describing the demonstration. Exhibition space will be allocated to those approved by the ICSR 2018 organizing committee.


The Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2018) will be published by Springer International Publishing as part of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (LNAI). The proceedings of the conference are indexed by Springer Link and Scopus. Selected papers will be invited for publication as a Special Issue in the International Journal of Social Robotics (Fall 2019).
