@article { leite13, abstract = {As the field of HRI evolves, it is important to understand how users interact with robots over long periods. This paper reviews the current research on long-term interaction between users and social robots. We describe the main features of these robots and highlight the main findings of the existing long-term studies. We also present a set of directions for future research and discuss some open issues that should be addressed in this field.}, journal = {International Journal of Social Robotics}, keywords = {{Human-robot interaction; Social robots; Long-term interaction; Longitudinal studies;Social Robotic Companions;}, month = {January}, pages = {1--18}, title = {Social Robots for Long-Term Interaction: A Survey}, year = {2013}, author = {Iolanda Leite and Carlos Martinho and Ana Paiva} }
