IROS 2022

October 23 October 27

The mobile manipulator TIAGo robot at the IROS 2022 event in Japan

Did you know that the first humanoid robot, wabot-1, was created in Japan? The 2022 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2022) will be held on October 23–27, 2022, in, as you probably already guessed, Japan, Kyoto!

After two years of the event taking place virtually, one of the most important conferences in the robotics world, IROS 2022, is back physically and our team could not be more excited to be travelling to Japan and seeing fellow researchers in person.

Make sure to stop by our booth, 29, to meet our team and have discussions on recent developments in robotics.

At the IROS 2022 Conference, our colleagues Severin Lémaignan and Lorenzo Ferrini will present a tutorial, ROS4HRI, during which you will be able to program a small simulated interactive system able to track and react to faces, skeletons and chats. If you would like to join the tutorial on the 23rd of October, click here for more information.

Our HRI expert Séverin Lémaignan is the co-organised of the Social and Cognitive Interactions for Assistive Robotics (SCIAR) workshop at IROS 2022 to discuss computational approaches for natural and social human-robot interactions for Assistive Robot Technology.

  • Recognition of individual’s and/or social group’s activity for social (assistive) robots
  • (Real-time) recognition of human social signals, e.g., gaze, gesture, vocal activity, etc.
  • Inference of human intentions for social (assistive) robots
  • Mechanisms of social cognition (joint attention, spatial perspective taking, action prediction, theory of mind) in human-robot interaction
  • Cognitive architectures for assistive social robots
  • Affective human-robot interaction (individuals, dyads and groups)
  • Developing emotion-aware and/or personality-aware robots
  • Interactive/active learning for social robotics
  • Transfer learning, meta-learning, reinforcement learning and learning from demonstration for human-robot social interactions
  • Multi-sensor fusion for social (assistive) robots
  • Human-robot engagement prediction
  • Applications of human- socially assistive robot interactions (e.g. for heath, education, entertainment, business)
  • Ambient assisted living
  • Human robot interactions and cognitive impairments
  • Social acceptance of robots based on human nonverbal behavioral cues (e.g., eye gaze, facial expressions, group formations)
  • Interactional synchrony between human and social robots
  • Human-robot interaction styles
  • Robot navigation problem in social interaction scenarios (e.g., adaptive planning)

We hope to see you in Kyoto!
