IEEE's RO-MAN workshops address fundamental issues regarding the co-existence of humans and intelligent machines and recent technological advancements, as well as psychological research on interactive communication and collaboration. Founded in 1992 by professors Toshio Fukuda, Hisato Kobayashi, Hiroshi Harashima, and Fumio Hara, the RO-MAN international workshop usually has a small but focused group of participants ranging between 70 to 170 researchers. RO-MAN workshops aim to expand research outcomes to the real-world applications for the enhancement of human-competence in such intelligent human-machine interactions in a networked society.
RO-MAN 2005, to be held in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, from August 13 through 15, 2005, will expand the scope of the workshop by including philosophical fundamentals, human factors, psychological advancements, and methodological extensions towards new human-robot interaction paradigms. The workshop will help bring researchers involved in various facets of human-robot interaction closer by allowing them to discuss and disseminate their ideas in a small, personal, and interactive setting- the hallmark of RO-MAN workshops. A range of potential topics for RO-MAN 2005 can be found at http://eecs.vanderbilt.edu/ROMAN2005/. The two-day workshop will feature several keynote speakers, energetic and interesting discussion on human-robot research, and an enjoyable time at the world-famous music city, Nashville!
