Dear Socnetters,

this is a friendly reminder for our Topical Issue on Social Reception of Humanoid Robots
, which will be published on Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics. We would like to kindly invite you to consider submitting your work to this thematic issue. For more details please visit the Topical Issue website at https://www.degruyter.com/page/1753.

Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics
 is a fully peer-reviewed journal that publishes original, high-quality research on topics broadly related to neuronally and psychologically inspired robots and other behaving autonomous systems. The journal offers fair and constructive peer review, no space constraints, free language-correction services, fast publication of accepted papers, extensive post-publication promotion and long-time preservation of published articles. The journal is published in open access model. As a result, both authors and readers can benefit from all the advantages of open access publication for free.

Humanoid robots, similar to bots, perform certain activities as a substitute for humans, with the goal to imitate human behavior. The Turing test is an experiment that was conceived as a way of determining the machine's ability to use natural language and indirectly to prove its ability to think in a way similar to humans. With this collection of papers, we hope to fill the gap in HCI (Human Computer Interaction) research, which has not yet paid attention to the socio-cognitive nature of human-humanoid interaction, especially in the context of building a shared work environment. This Special Issue aims at exploring also philosophical questions about the boundaries of humanity, as well as issues concerning Searle's “Chinese room” paradox redefined in the context of machine learning, deep-learning and development of complex aware systems with a broadly defined humanoid interface

The topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to:

#  Papers presenting qualitative and quantitative methodologies of measuring human-machine interaction.
#  Affective computing applied in assessing humanoid bots’ and robots’ interaction with humans.
#  Text mining and natural language processing as well as social network analysis tools related to measuring and accessing human-machine interaction. Neural network based humanoid agents and their interaction capacities with humans.
#  Business-oriented papers (including such topics as: artificial intelligence supporting business processes, humanoid machines performance in a workplace in the company).
#  Exploring the topic of human robot cooperation and trust.
