The workshops and tutorials are now available on the author’s page. Workshops are an opportunity for participants to meet other members of the HRI community, to discuss problems and to present their ideas around a common topic. Two half-day workshops will be held at HRI2009, both on Tuesday, March 10. The two workshops are scheduled in such a way that it is possible to combine them. The submissions will be subjected to a peer review process. There will also be a full-day tutorial, which will run in parallel to the workshops. The participants in a workshop or tutorial are required to register at the conference as well.
