The workshop was the fifth event in the series of meetings organized by the Research Network for Transdisciplinary Studies in Social Robotics (TRANSOR, www.transor.org). In line with previous TRANSOR events it served the general aim of including the Humanities into a full-scale interdisciplinary or even transdisciplinary research on Human-Robot Interaction and Social Robotics. The specific aim of this workshop was to contribute to a better understanding of the possible socio-cultural, psychological, and ethical-existential implications of the increased use of social robots in the workplace. The contributions investigated human work experience in different forms and modes of human-robot co-working. Two papers presented classificatory frameworks for distinguishing forms of working with robots (human-robot collaboration) and forms of working alongside artificial social agents. Other papers presented empirical work on new classificatory frameworks.
