Social HRI requires robots able to use appropriate,
adaptive and contingent behaviours to form and maintain en- gaging social interactions with people. Cognitive Architectures emphasise a generality of mechanism and application, making them an ideal basis for such technical developments. Following the successful first workshop on Cognitive Architectures for HRI at the 2014 HRI conference, this second edition of the workshop focusses specifically on applications to social interaction. The full-day workshop is centred on participant contributions, and structured around a set of questions to provide a common basis of comparison between different assumptions, approaches, mechanisms, and architectures. These contributions will be used to support extensive and structured discussions, with the aim of facilitating the development and application of cognitive architectures to social HRI systems. By attending, we envisage that participants will gain insight into how the consideration of cognitive architectures complements the development of au- tonomous social robots.
