2nd What Could Go Wong?! Workshop

After a successful first workshop at HRI 2018 in Chicago, we are organizing a second What could go wrong?! workshop. This interactive and hands-on workshop is not just about listening to your HRI colleagues, but it’s about actively sharing your experiences. We hope to inspire the HRI community to be open about the reality of conducting HRI research and to communicate about issues, challenges or unexpected outcomes.

Everyone doing HRI research with end-users are invited to submit a case study to our workshop. We are particularly interested in case studies where things did not go as planned. Case studies describing research in the lab or in the wild are both welcome. Examples of unplanned experiences could include, but are not limited to, unexpected responses from the user, issues with the experimental setup or simply having challenges with transferring theory to the real world.
