Finally our journal paper got published

Lorenz, T.; Weiss, A. & Hirche, S.
Synchrony and Reciprocity: Key Mechanisms for Social Companion Robots in Therapy and Care
International Journal of Social Robotics, Springer Netherlands, 2015, 1-19

Originally, this article should have been the opener for a Special Issue on “The Future of Social Companion Robots” which unfortunatley did not come together, but still I am happy that this article gets published, as it gives an overview on how the two key mechanisms of human interaction synchrony and reciprocity affect human-robot interaction both in the behavioral level (movements) and in the social level (relationships).
