Human-Robot Teaming was a full day workshop held on March 2nd, 2015 at HRI 2015 in Portland, Oregon. The workshop involved interdisciplinary discussion covering the various facets of teamwork facilitation between humans and robots.

Developing collaborative robots that can productively and safely operate out of isolation in uninstrumented, human-populated environments is an important goal for the field of robotics. The development of such agents, those that handle the dynamics of human environments and the complexities of interpreting human interaction, is a strong focus within Human-Robot Interaction and involves underlying research questions deeply relevant to the broader robotics community.

This workshop aimed to bring together peer-reviewed technical and positional contributions spanning a multitude of topics within the domain of human-robot teaming. We bring together researchers from a wide array of human-robot interaction research concentrations with the common ideal of enabling humans and robots to better work together towards common goals. The morning session was devoted to gaining insight from invited speakers and contributed papers, while the afternoon session heavily emphasized participant interaction via poster presentations, breakout sessions, and an expert panel discussion.
