16th International Conference on Social Robotics +AI


October 23-26, 2024 – Odense, Denmark

The 16th International Conference on Social Robotics will bring together researchers and practitioners working on the interaction between humans and intelligent robots and on the integration of social robots into our society. ICSR’24 will take place in Odense, Denmark as a face-to-face conference between October 23-26, 2024. This will be the first time that the conference will be hosted in Denmark and Scandinavia. The theme of this year’s conference is “Empowering Humanity: The Role of Social and Collaborative Robotics in Shaping Our Future”.

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. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Collaborative robots in service applications (in construction, agriculture, etc.) 
  • Human-robot interaction and collaboration
  • Affective and cognitive sciences for socially interactive robots 
  • Context awareness, expectation, and intention understanding 
  • Control architectures for social robotics
  • Software frameworks for social robotics 
  • Teleoperation, telepresence and remote interaction 
  • Human augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robots 
  • Interaction and collaboration among robots, humans, and environments 
  • Personal robots for the home 
  • Multimodality in human-robot interaction
  • Multiparty interaction
  • Understanding sociality

Submission of Papers

Submissions must be made in the PDF format and follow the Springer LNCS/LNAI style for the layout. All papers will be refereed by the program committee. Full papers are limited to ten pages. Detailed instructions for paper submission are available on the conference web site. LNCS style templates are available on the Springer LNCS website.

Special Sessions

The ICSR’24 Program will include Special Sessions. Their objective is to complement the regular program with new and/or emerging topics of particular interest. Proposals will be evaluated, and organizers will be informed of the outcome. Once accepted, the special session will be publicized in ICRS website together with invited session code, so prospective authors can submit. Papers will undergo the same review process as regular papers.


Participants are invited to hold workshops on topics relevant to social robotics. Proposals on workshops will be considered by the organizing committee.
