CALL FOR PAPERS

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

The Third International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2015)
               Daegu, Korea, October 21-24, 2015
               hai2015.org

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

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!

<< Submission and Reviewing >>
HAI 2015 will accept ONLY online submissions of PDF files (no MS Word,
Latex, etc.). Paper submissions should be at least 4 pages but no more
than 8 pages. Similarly, poster submissions should be no more than 2
pages. All submissions will be reviewed by three reviewers and will
receive a meta review for quality assurance. The paper will be
evaluated on the basis of research originality, excellence, and
significance, and relevance to HAI. We also invite position papers,
preliminary (but high impact) studies, and concept papers.

All papers need to be in the ACM SIGCHI format
(http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform); be sure to leave the
ACM copyright area blank. Please visit the submission page
(http://hai-conference.net/hai2015/submission/) at the HAI 2015 Web
site to prepare and submit your papers. All accepted papers will be
archived in the ACM Digital Library.
