Good news for the start of my research year 2011. All three Late Breaking Research papers we submitted to HRI 2011 are accepted for publication. They are now hopefully all in print (we really had issues with the latex template provided by ACM, but everything should be fine now). All three papers are related to our work done in the first year of the IURO project (Interactive Urban Robot). We conducted a human-human study on itinerary requests to inform the structure for the human-robot dialogue and to get to now the interaction context “public space”. The third paper was on a focus group which we did to identify expectations towards the appearance of the IURO robot.
