We invite proposals for Workshops and Tutorials to be held at HAI 2016
Conference, which will take place during the main conference scheduled
for 4-7 October, 2016 Singapore.

The workshop and tutorial sessions aim to provide an opportunity to discuss
current and emergent topics on Human-Agent Interaction including but not
limited to research topics, application, design and implication concerning
the social aspects of agent interfacing. In particular, we welcome both full
and half day workshop and tutorial proposals that bridge the gap between
theoretical advances and innovative applications of Human-Agent interaction.

All accepted workshop papers and tutorial articles will be archived in the
ACM Digital Library as extended abstracts.
