Eco-socio-botics 2022 - Social Robotics for sustainability
@ ICSR 2022 www.icsr2022.it
Florence, Italy
December 13-16, 2022
Workshop: December 16, 2022

Contact: ecosociobotics2022 at gmail.com

Important Dates:
Paper submission: November, 14, 2022
Notification of acceptance: November, 20, 2022
Workshop: December, 16, 2022

Call for abstracts:
We are interested in submissions of original research on Social Robotics and sustainability, or related transdisciplinary research in fields relevant to Social Robotics.
The submissions, in the form of abstracts (min 500, max 1000 words), should explore one or more specific aspects of the relationship between Social Robotics and sustainability (e.g., theoretical, methodological, social, anthropological, epistemological, ethical, applicative, technical aspects) based on research developed in Social Robotics, HRI and/or related fields, with a preference for transdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary approaches. In particular, the submitted abstracts should present original research works dealing with questions such as – but not limited to – the following:

▪ How can the interaction with social robots help us to rethink a new ecological and ethical way of living?

▪ What robot prototypes can we imagine that are useful for sustainability? What features should they have? What design?

▪ Can we develop robotic technologies and applications that interact with humans and at the same time can contribute to sustainability and the green transition?

▪ Could we build robots in a more sustainable way? (e.g., with recyclable, reconditioned, or environmentally friendly materials) Could they work with renewable energy sources?

▪ To what extent should a robot influence human behavior, even if it is for a noble purpose such as environmental sustainability?

▪ What are the groundings, possibilities, limits, and expected results, of current research programs involving sustainability in Social Robotics and HRI research?

▪ What are the possible ethical implications of such an invasive technology on people’s behavior?

▪ What principles should be included in the design of next generation social robots and human-robot (social) interactions?

List of topics:
▪ Sustainability of emerging technology
▪ Design for sustainable robots
▪ Social Robotics for sustainable development
▪ Ethics of sustainability;
▪ Ethics of Robotics
▪ Persuasive Social Robotics
▪ Ecological Social Robotics
▪ Artificial Empathy
▪ Modular Ro-botics.
