Inclusion @ RO-MAN


We are committed to making RO-MAN and the field of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) inclusive and accessible to all. Toward this goal, we are taking the following actions:



Furthermore, we acknowledge that attendees reside in different time zones, may have caregiving/other responsibilities, less reliable access to the internet, or lack quiet private space to participate during the scheduled timing of the event.


We aim to offer:

  • automatic time-zone conversion for our program and workshop calendars
  • the ability to add individual sessions to your calendar pre-conference
  • asynchronous access to materials
  • asynchronous forms of interaction, discussions or Q&A (e.g. text-based)
  • recordings of the event for participants to access the material later
  • an alternative to using a camera/microphone during breakout sessions if participants are unable to use it during the event
