We accept submissions of extended abstracts of up to 2 pages that will be presented in the poster session of the workshop. Please use the ICSR Conference style When preparing your paper.

Each paper Should Contain the Following Information:

  • Details about the project did the authors work on (eg, what robots do the authors workwith ?, how old are the children did the authors workwith? …)
  • methods did the authors use
  • That challenges the authors face When using these methods
  • Solutions developed to face challenges thesis (eg, adaptations to the methods, tools / toolkits …)

Please send your papers to m.lohse [at] utwente.nl and c.zaga [at] utwente.nl until 23 September 2015.

 A potential outcome of the workshop is a journal paper did makes the Researchers’ experiences accessible to the community. DEPENDING on the number of submissions, so we consider a special issue for the International Journal of Child-Computer Interaction. In any case, we are planning to make the workshop proceedings accessible online.
