Kerstin Dautenhahn organised the Second International Symposium on New Frontiers in Human-Robot Interaction, a two-day symposium at AISB 2010, 31 March - 1 April 2010, De Montfort University, Leicester, United Kingdom.
Kerstin Dautenhahn was chair of the AISB 2009 Symposium on New Frontiers in Human-Robot Interaction, part of the AISB 2009 convention, 8-9 April 2009, Edinburgh, Scotland.
In 2008 Kerstin Dautenhahn was co-organizer (with Gert Jan Gelderblom and Holly Yanco) of Robotic Helpers: User Interaction, Interfaces and Companions in Assistive and Therapy Robotics, a full-day workshop associated to HRI'08. The workshop was held on 12 March 2008, electronic versions of the proceedings papers are available: http://homepages.feis.herts.ac.uk/~comqkd/HRI08-WS-RoboticHelpers.html
Kerstin Dautenhahn was co- general chair (with Terry Fong) of HRI'08, 3rd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction, 12-15 March 2008, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The conference attracted up to 250 people and was the largest HRI conference to date in terms of paper submissions and conference attendees.
Kerstin Dautenhahn was general chair of the 2006 IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication (RO-MAN 2006), 6-8 September 2006, de Havilland Campus, Hatfield, UK. The theme of Ro-man 2006 was Getting to Know Socially Intelligent Robots. The symposium attracted 200 participants and presented state-of-the-art in human-robot interaction research.Proceedings of the 10 symposia that ran as part of the AISB 2005 Convention, 12-15 April 2005 at University of Hertfordshire are available online. Kerstin Dautenhahn was general chair of the convention with the theme Social Intelligence and Interaction in Animals, Robots, and Agents.
