HRI 2008International Conference on Human Robot Interaction (C)

12-15 March

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Researchers in robotics, human-factors, ergonomics, and human-computer interaction are invited to attend. Because human-robot interaction is inherently inter-disciplinary, the conference is seeking papers from several disciplines. A primary goal of the conference is to create a common venue for a broad set of researchers. By appealing to a broad set of researchers, the conference complements many existing venues. HRI is a single track, highly selective annual conference that seeks to showcase the very best in human-robot interaction.

Keywords Robot-team learning, Lifelike robots, Multi-modal interaction, HRI foundations

WMCNR 2008

4 April

Berlin, Germany

The wireless multishop communications has been one of key research issues in recent years both in academia and wireless industry. It encompasses ad hoc radio networks, sensor networks, wireless mesh networks and mobile multishop relay related to the industrial and standardization efforts such as IEEE 802.11s, the IEEE 802.15.4, 802.16j, etc. Further the multishop communications can be combined with cooperative communications and network coding, which attracted more researchers in this field.
