The paper "Configuring Humans: What Roles Humans Play in HRI Research” has been accepted to ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI'2022). This paper holds a special place in my heart and that of my dear co-author Hee Rin. We began drafting this paper in 2016, and then continued to revise it until 2020. This paper took a long time to complete, but it will be one of the papers that I am most proud of. (the camera-ready version file is attached here)
