Call: Third International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2015)


The Third International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2015)
Daegu, Korea, October 21-24, 2015

Due to the volume of requests, we have extended the submission deadline to May 22nd, 2015, 23:59 PDT

People are increasingly interacting with computerized agents. Examples include autonomous and tele-presence robots in homes, healthcare, or search and rescue, virtual characters in the expanding gaming industry or for serious games, and agents representing other people through on-line social and interactive meeting places. Although these broad areas have their own unique research challenges, there is a clear commonality to be addressed in the investigation of how people interact with agents, whether they have physical or virtual embodiments, or represent remote people or an AI algorithm; this commonality requires explicit consideration.

The Third International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2015, in co-operation with ACM SIGCHI) aims to be the premier interdisciplinary venue for discussing and disseminating state-of-the-art research and results that have implications across conventional interaction boundaries including robots, software agents and digitally-mediated human-human communication. HAI will gather researchers from fields spanning engineering, computer science, psychology and sociology, and will cover diverse topics, including: human-robot interaction, affective computing, computer-supported collaborative work, gaming and serious games, artificial intelligence, and more.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • design of Human-Agent Interaction, including quantitative and qualitative results
  • theoretical models of Human-Agent Interaction
  • impacts of embodiment (e.g., physical vs digital, human vs animal-like)
  • experimental methods for Human-Agent Interaction

This includes more targeted results that have implications to the broader human-agent interaction community:

  • human-robot interaction
  • human-virtual agent interaction
  • interaction with smart homes and smart cars
  • distributed groupware where people have remote embodiments and representations
  • and more!
