SRT 2012 - Social Robotic Telepresence

11 Sep 2012 - 09:00 to 18:00
Paris, France co-located with Ro-Man 2012

Robotic telepresence, also known as telerobotics, is a subfield of telepresence whose aim is to increase presence via embodiment in a robotic platform. In particular, robotic telepresence can be an effective tool to enhance social interaction suited to certain groups of users such as the elderly. Following the success of the first edition of the workshop held in Lausanne, Switzerland in conjunction with HRI'11 , we organize the workshop second edition in association with IEEE Ro-Man 2012 in Paris, with the aim to continue the discussion on various aspects important for social robotic telepresence.
