The 14th International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2022) brings together researchers and practitioners working on the interaction between humans and intelligent robots and on the integration of social robots into our society. ICSR 2022 will take place in Florence as a hybrid conference on December 13th-16th, 2022.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Social Robots for Assisted Living and Healthcare’, emphasizing on the increasing importance of social robotics in human daily living and society.

The conference welcomes original contributions describing technically rigorous scientific and research advances in the area of social robotics and AI: innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and improvements, novel applications on the latest fundamental advances in the core technologies that form the backbone of social robotics as well as distinguished studies and projects pertaining the social robotics and its interaction and impact in our society.
Papers should contain original research that has neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere. It is possible that your manuscript will be run through our plagiarism-checking tool.
