Special Session on
Interaction with Humanoid Robots
 - Humanoid 2021

28 - 29 October, 2021

Within the 5th International Conference on Computer-Human Interaction Research and Applications - CHIRA 2021


Peter Forbrig
University of Rostock

Brief Bio
Prof. Peter Forbrig is a full professor of software engineering. He got his PhD in compiler construction (1980) and his habilitation in software engineering methods (1987). Besides working in industry from 1981 to 1998 he was appointed as a full professor in 1994. His research interests include classical software engineering like UML, design patterns and case tools. Additionally, he is interested in combining task-based development methods with object-oriented ones. His research combines human computer interaction with software engineering. He published several papers on software engineering and HCI. Prof. Forbrig is expert member of IFIP TC 13 (Human-Computer Interaction), and was visiting professor at the University of Cottbus (Germany, 1993), University of Linz (Austria, 1997), University of Potchefstroom (South Africa, 2000), Concordia University Montreal (Canada, 2003) and Paul Sabatier University Toulouse (France, 2013).


With the usage of a humanoid robot new challenges for interactions with humans arise. Even that a lot of knowledge from HCI can be reused there exist aspects like gestures or remote control that ask for new solutions. Additionally, it is interesting in which way humanoid robots can help to replace human experts in education or rehabilitation.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Human-Robot Interaction
  • Application of Humanoid Robots in Rehabilitation
  • Software Architectures for HRI
