Abstract

This workshop aims at advancing the topic of the relationships between robotics science and experiments in HRI. The full-day workshop follows on previous events in interdisciplinary venues focusing on efforts to establish reproducible, standardized experiments in order to adequately benchmark and evaluate human-robot interaction, scientific achievements and results in the areas of industrial, medical, social, service and personal-care robots. The words "standard" and "standardized" sometimes are misunderstood as fixing and blocking the freedom of the researcher to create new experiments and therefore to advance the scientific knowledge. As per this workshop, the words must be intended as a "way of experimenting temporarily agreed by the community, that is evolving and tracking the scientific progress through continuous revision by the community itself".
