CALL FOR PAPERS
------------------------------------------------------
To go beyond scripted and artificial interaction, social agents should be
able to learn with or from humans. Such complex skills emerge from a
complete understanding of the inner mechanisms of social interactions, in
particular on the awareness of the user’s actions, behaviours, and mental
and emotional states and on the coherent production of multimodal, verbal
and non-verbal communication skills in a human-like manner.

In recent years, advances on this field contributed to the development of
several kinds of agents able to face a broad range of social situations:
human aware robot partners in industries, companion agents for children or
for elderly people, social robots in public or in personal spaces, virtual
avatars as educational tools at school and so on. Such experiences shown
how this domain cannot be solely approached from a pure engineering
perspective: human sciences, social sciences, developmental sciences, play
a primary role on the development and the enhancement of social interaction
skills for artificial agents.

The results achieved by researchers are particularly important to allow
naïve people to interact in their everyday life with naturally
communicative agents. This is impacting markets opening new social and
economic opportunities for industries.

The scope of this workshop is to present rigorous scientific and
philosophical advances on social learning and multimodal interaction for
social agents, welcoming contributes on both theoretical aspects as well as
on practical application, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration between
researchers on the domain as well as with industrial partners.



Topics of interest:
 * Theoretical and practical approaches to social learning with agents
 * Verbal, non-verbal communication and backchannels
 * Natural language processing and dialogue systems for social robots
 * Personality, emotions and agents
 * Joint actions, coordination and imitation
 * Timing, synchrony and coordination and learning dynamics
 * Human-robot interaction measures and interaction efficiency metrics
 * Engagement, acceptability, likeability and perceived intelligence
 * Context aware social interaction
 * Multi-party interaction
 * Use of multimodal sensors for human intent estimation in the wild
 * Curiosity-driven learning

 - Full six-page paper submissions will be selected for either an oral
presentation or a poster presentation.
 - Two-page poster abstract submissions will be selected to encourage
discussion.
The posters will have a 1 minute “teaser” presentation.

Submissions are due on 08/28/2016.
Send your paper to workshop.icmi16-dsa at isir.upmc.fr with the title [ICMI16
Workshop: Designing Artificial Agents]. The workshop proceedings will be
published on the ACM digital library after the conference.

All contributions will be subjected to blind peer review by a minimum of
two independent experts in the field.
Notifications will be issued on 09/28/2016.
