RO-MAN 2010 – 2nd paper accepted

Good news:


Also the second paper I submitted to RO-MAN 2010 was finally accepted after an intensive revision. The paper is entitled “User Perception of Usability Aspects in Indirect HRI – A Chain of Translations” and was co-authored with colleagues from University of Salzburg (Judith Igelsböck, Roland Buchner, and Manfred Tscheligi) and colleagues from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Paolo Pierro and Carlos Balaguer). The article reports on the results of a user study conducted in the framework of the ROBOT@CWE project, that investigated the perceived usability of naive users conducting two navigation tasks with the HOAP-3 robot. The paper will be presented during the Special Session “Re-thinking interaction with robots” chaired by Prof. Marti and Prof. Dautenhahn. Special thanks go to my colleague Mag. Judith Igelsböck , who is now doing her PhD at the Department of Social Studies of Science at the University of Vienna,  for all the extra hours to improve the data reflection and discussion section of the paper with her profound knowledge on sociology of translation.
