 The Fourth International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2016)
                        Singapore  ~ 4 -7 October 2016
                      Submission Deadline: 30 April 2016

===================================================

The Fourth International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2016,
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.
The theme for HAI 2016 is "Machine learning methods and multimodal interfaces
to achieve social intelligence in robots, avatars, and virtual characters".
The conference seeks contributions from a broad range of 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,
- designs  and studies of Human-Agent Interaction, including quantitative
  and qualitative results
- theoretical models of Human-Agent Interaction
- technological advances in Human-Agent Interaction
- impacts of embodiment (e.g., physical vs digital, human vs animal-like)
- experimental methods for Human-Agent Interaction
- character and avatar design in video games
- agents in social network

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!

Full papers, posters, late-breaking results, tutorial/workshop papers will
be archived in the ACM Digital Library. Full details of the call for the
submission types can be found at www.hai2016.org/submission
