Many countries face pressure on their health care systems. To alleviate this pressure, 'self care' and 'self monitoring' are often stimulated with the use of new assistive technologies. Social robotics is a research area where robotic technology is optimized for various social functions. One of these functions is self care assistance. To foster progress in this area of 'social robotics for self care', coordinated efforts between research institutes, companies and end users are needed. This workshop focuses on bringing these stakeholders together and creating a shared research agenda.
