We invite participants to submit 1-2 pages extended abstracts or short papers (max 4 pages) of relevant work. Publications to be presented at the main conference are also welcome. The accepted abstracts will be posted on the workshop website but they will not appear in the official IEEE proceedings. We encourage researchers from psychology, robotics, neurosciences or cognitive science, to contribute to the workshop. The reviewing is single blind and will be carried out by the program committee and workshop chairs. The call in pdf can be downloaded here.

Please submit your abstract to the workshop official email address before August 27, 2017. The template for the extended abstracts is IEEE standard two columns (Latex, Word).

The accepted papers will have the opportunity to present their work/ideas in a poster session. Up to 4 selective submissions will give a 15 min talk at the workshop. Please indicate in your email if you want to present as a poster or/and oral presentation.

Furthermore, a selective number of papers from the poster sessions will be invited to submit their novel work to the special issue we are proposing for journal to be defined. This special issue will cover the main topics of interest of this workshop.
