Dear Colleagues,

We would be grateful if you would pass along this announcement to any individuals or networks you think might be interested in participating in this workshop in August.


***updated call with complete list of speakers and call for posters***

We are excited to announce the 2017 Social Robotics workshop entitled ‘The Emerging Social Neuroscience of Human-Robot Interaction’, to be held at Bangor University in picturesque
North Wales from 17-18 August 2017. The aim of this workshop is to bring together disciplinary expertise in psychology, neuroscience, and social robotics to discuss the latest findings, current challenges and exciting possibilities relevant to understanding
and optimising how humans perceive and interact with artificial agents. 

The workshop will feature an eclectic mix of keynote lectures, talks and poster presentations. Keynote speakers include Martin Giese (University of Tübingen), Ayşe Saygin (UCSD),
Thierry Chaminade (Aix-Marseille University) and Goren Gordon (Tel-Aviv University).

For the complete list of speakers, further information and registration, see http://ift.tt/2pPd3pm
keep discussion lively and to maximise chances for social interaction between participants, meeting attendance will be capped at 55 participants.

Poster submission is now open. Join the discussion and present your latest work on social behaviour, perception, HRI, or any other topic that might inform how
humans might effectively perceive and interact with artificial agents. A 200-word abstract should be submitted through the form below by the closing date of 1 June 2017. Students and postdocs are particularly encouraged to attend, with travel bursaries available
to offset the costs of meeting attendance.
