Nowadays, off-the-shelf social robots are used more frequently by the HRI community to research social interactions with different types of users across a range of domains such as education, retail, health care, public places and other domains. Everyone doing HRI research with end-users is 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. In this workshop, we focus on off-the-shelf robots. In order to generalize and compare differences across multiple HRI domains and create common solutions, we will provide a template for your case study. We are interested in learning how such unexpected HRI results can be reported. In the workshop, we will discuss and study how failures are reported and be inspired to create a list of good ways to report failures, which can hopefully be inspiring for the HRI community.
