The recent trend toward developing a new generation of robots that can participate in our lives and exist in human environments has introduced the need for investigating the paradigms, techniques, and technologies for the interaction between people and robots.

The IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) invites you to submit papers in this field, in response to a call for a Special Issue devoted to Human-Robot Interaction.
