Submissions are now closed

Authors must submit their papers via the OCS submission system: You will need to login to OCS using your existing Springer account or register if you are a new user.

Papers should contain original research that has neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere. It is possible that your manuscript will be run through our plagiarism-checking tool.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish. The corresponding author signing the Consent-to-Publish should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made. Authors must submit their contributions in PDF format. Full manuscripts are limited to 12 pages (including references). All papers will be refereed by the program committee.

The Proceedings of the Twelfth International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR 2020) will be published by Springer International Publishing as part of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (LNAI), a topical subseries of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). The proceedings of the conference are indexed by SpringerLink and Scopus.

Selected papers will be invited for publication as a Special Issue in the International Journal of Social Robotics (Fall 2020).

Note on ArXiv submissions: Prior versions of the Contribution published on non-commercial pre-print servers like ArXiv/CoRR and HAL can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author’s accepted version.
