Symposium “The Future of Human-Robot Interaction”

To highlight the inaugural address of prof. David Abbink, a symposium was held in the morning, for a selective audience of 100 people. Five internationally renowned speakers shared their perspectives on “The Future of Human-Robot Interaction”, speaking from their diverse backgrounds in human factors, haptics, human-automation interaction and ethnography (note that Tom Carlson would originally speak as well, but was forced to cancel unfortunately). The symposium was recorded through Collegerama, click here to view the presentations of each of the presenters mentioned below.
