Hard experiences including large-scale disasters, racial clashes and the pandemic have forced us to think about humanity. It means compassion for others, which leads to activities to make the world comfortable for anyone. We wish that the humanoid robots will be artifacts that do not only resemble humans but embody the humanity. The questions for us to consider are what functionalities and capabilities should be delivered through them for the humanity with what criteria the body, the information processing, and the behavior of them should be designed based on. The conference would like to provide the place for discussions about technologies that realize the first humanoid robots going into our world, which is backed up by the gradually lowered social barrier against them.

The conference invites paper contributions and workshop/tutorial proposals, which are expected to be related with but not limited to:

Materials, devices, and mechanisms for humanoids
Hardware design criteria for anthropomorphism
Theory and computation techniques of kinematics and dynamics
Whole-body control for locomotion and manipulation
Sensing, perception, and cognition of body and world
Theory and computation techniques for adaptation and learning
Informatics and architecture for behavior planning and synthesis
Teleoperation and telepresence using humanoids
Measuring, modeling and simulating humans
Human science through humanoid robots
Interfaces between humanoid robots and humans
Cyborgs, prostheses, and assistive devices for humans
Application case studies of humanoid robots in society

Accepted papers will be presented either at a single track oral session or during poster sessions. All the accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the conference without distinction and on IEEE Xplore.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2017 edition, 3.76% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 37.50% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 8.59% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 18.75% of all publications and 35.16% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
