Special Session Women

Special Session on Women Inventors and Pioneers in Love and Sex Robots – LSR 2018

 


Call for Papers


Throughout history, women have been performing alongside men without recognition. They were confined to play certain roles decreed by social norms, cultural ethics, religious beliefs, and certain policies. Education is still a struggle for women, fraught with obstacles from lack of finances to religious constraints. Even in the most developed nations, women are discouraged from seeking carriers in male-dominated fields. However, there were courageous and pioneering women who have inspired countless other women to reach the glass ceiling. In honour of contributions of women to the field of Robotics and Sex Robots, LSR 2018 would like to inspire future generations of women by creating a dialogue on women inventors and pioneers in Love and Sex Robots.

We would invite papers from these topics -but not limited to- that discuss women and their contribution to the dialogue of emotional and physical intimacy with robots.
