Call: Artificial Intelligence for Human-Robot Interaction (AAAI Fall 2017 Symposium)

AAAI Fall Symposium: AI for Human-Robot Interaction (AI-HRI)
November 9-11, 2017 — Arlington, Virginia, USA

Submission Deadline (Extended): July 27, 2017

AI-HRI (The AAAI Fall Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Human-Robot Interaction (HRI)) seeks to bring together the subset of the HRI community focused on the application of AI solutions to HRI problems. Building on the success of the three previous years’ symposia, the central purpose of this year’s symposium is to address the statements “HRI is an AI problem” and “AI is an HRI problem”. The symposium will include current research talks and discussions both to share work in this intersectional area and provide guidance for how to best frame AI-centric HRI work within AI venues. It will also include invited speaker panels to give different perspectives on AI-for-HRI.


AI-HRI encourages social scientists to submit:

FULL PAPERS: 6-8 pages
May highlight HRI research focusing on the use of autonomous AI systems.

SHORT PAPERS: 3-4 pages
May describe challenges that social scientists encounter in designing, performing, or evaluating studies in HRI which could be ameliorated by new or improved tools, software packages, or artificial intelligence systems.

TOOL PAPERS: 1-2 pages
May describe novel datasets of interest to the AI-HRI community. Presented datasets should be made available at the symposium.



SUBMISSIONS DUE TO: July, 27, 2017, 11:59 PM PT (UTC-7)


SYMPOSIUM: November 9-11, 2017 in Arlington, VA
