Astrid Weiss



is a postdoctoral research fellow in HRI at the Vision4Robotics group at the ACIN Institute of Automation and Control at Vienna University of Technology (Austria).
She holds a master degree in sociology and a PhD in social sciences from the University of Salzburg. Her current research focuses on user-centered design and evaluation studies for Human-Robot Interaction, with a special interest in the impact technology has on the everyday life and what makes people accept or reject technology.
She was involved in the organization of two workshops on social acceptability of robots at Ro-Man2008 and HRI2009, as well as in the HRI Pioneers workshop 2010.
