Within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction and Human-Robot Interaction, the past few years have witnessed a strong upsurge of interest in the more personal aspects of human relationships with these artificial partners. This upsurge has not only been apparent amongst the general public, as evidenced by an increase in coverage in the print media, TV documentaries and feature films, but also within the academic community.

The International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots provides an excellent opportunity for academics and industry professionals to present and discuss their innovative work and ideas in an academic symposium.

The 4th congress will be held at the University of Montana, Missoula, Montana in the United States on 13-14 December 2018.


A show entitled “Sex with Robots and Other Devices” will be running at the Kings Head Theatre in London, from May 15th to June 2nd.

Theatre Location: 115 Upper Street, Islington, London
