Dr. Mutlu (PhD, Carnegie Mellon University) is an assistant professor of computer sciences, psychology, and industrial engineering at the University of Wisconsin–Madison where he directs the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory. His research focuses on combining social scientific and computational methods to build a computational understanding of human social behavior, design social behaviors for humanlike robots, and evaluate the social and cognitive impact of these behaviors on people. Dr. Mutlu has an interdisciplinary background in interaction design, social psychology, and computer science. He has served in the HRI Conference program and organizing committees. His work on designing social behavior for robots has won best paper awards at the HRI Conference in 2008 and 2009.

Dr. Sabanovic (PhD, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) is an assistant professor of informatics and cognitive science at Indiana University, Bloomington. Her research explores the intersection of robot design, social cognition, and culture through the study of social presence, coordination, and attribution in human-robot interaction and design. She has published on nonverbal human-robot interaction, interdisciplinary methods in robot design, and cross-cultural studies of social robots in various social science, design, and robotics venues. She received a best paper nomination at the HRI Conference in 2009. Dr. Sabanovic has been a lecturer at Stanford University, as well as a visiting scholar at the National Institute for Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, Japan and the Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute.
