Call for Papers: Designing for People in Human-Robot Collaboration issue

WHEN: 15 Dec

WHERE: Interaction Design & Architecture(s) Journal

CALL FOR PAPERS – Designing for People in Human-Robot Collaboration issue

Our postdoctoral research fellows, Stine Johansen and Alan Burden, along with Eike Schneiders and Alex Walzer, are the guest editors for the Designing for People in Human-Robot Collaboration issue of Interaction Design & Architecture(s) Journal (IxD&A) to be released in April/May 2024.

This special issue is intended to investigate human-centred and design-led approaches to Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC). Robotic capabilities are diversifying and, with those, so are opportunities and challenges for HRC. With the intention of leveraging the complementary skills of people and robots, HRC has a wide range of applications, including manufacturing, emergency response, education, healthcare, and the home.

Furthermore, with collaborative robots, or “cobots”, moving into “the wild”, research that goes beyond expanding mechanical robotic capabilities is becoming more critical. As robots are no longer isolated mechanical tools operating at their own pace and in their own confined space, the call is for research on how to design for close collaboration between robots and people.
