Socially interactive technologies are emerging as one of the predominant technologies of the future. In this workshop, we aim to discuss the emerging field of Social Robotic technologies with a particular focus on interaction design methodologies used in the design process.

The workshop will investigate how researchers have traditionally approached designing social robots and what we can learn from the interaction design field for future designs. The overarching objective of the workshop is to address and explore possible design inspirational methods that can help designers in social robot design. Thus, in this workshop, we will pursue and explore possible design methods that can inspire designers' vision when designing social robots in different environments.

This workshop will bring together HCI and HRI researchers, UX designers, artists, and engineers who are interested in designing socially interactive technologies. The main activities of the workshop will encompass two interactive sessions and a discussion panel on approaches to inspire the design of socially interactive robots.
