Human-Agent Groups: Studies, Algorithms and Challenges .

As robots and artificial agents become more prominent in human lives, they
also increasingly become parts of groups and teams. Group interaction of
humans and agents include applications as diverse as: a digital assistant
for the home, a social robot operating in a mall, a group of robots and
artificial agents supporting first responders. However, most research on
human-agent interaction still focuses on one human interacting with one
agent. Research on group interactions between multiple humans, artificial
agents and robots is important, and poses novel challenges as compared to
studying dyadic interaction. It requires gathering groups (of humans and/or
of artificial agents), coordinating groups of agents, and addressing
additional factors that contribute to successful group interaction (e.g.,
intra-group dynamics).

The AAAI Fall Symposium on Human-Agent Groups: Studies, Algorithms and
Challenges aims to bring scholars together to discuss groups in human-agent
and human-robot interaction. We seek participation from scholars of
multi-agent systems, human groups and human-robot interaction to (a) help
inform research in human-agent groups, and (b) to spur interesting research
directions in respective parent fields. For more details and topics, please
visit the supplemental symposium website.

The symposium (2.5 days) will create a forum for participants to (a) share
and discuss solutions to challenges of human-agent groups, (b) brainstorm
how best to advance research on human-agent groups, and (c) network and
seed collaboration with scholars in related fields. The symposium will
achieve these goals through talks from keynote speakers, poster sessions,
discussion groups, and panel-style sessions on submitted papers (similar to
the WeRobot conference presentation format).

Perspectives of Interest

We invite researchers, designers, and practitioners with varied
perspectives and research interests including but not limited to:


   multi-agent systems, robotics, autonomous agents

   cognitive science, psychology, human factors engineering,

   human-robot interaction, human-computer interaction,

   technology design, and applications involving human-agent groups.


We solicit full papers (6 to 8 pages) and short papers (2 to 4 pages).
Submissions are invited from all perspectives of interest (see list above),
and can include recent or ongoing research, position papers, and surveys
relevant to human-agent groups. All papers will be presented via breakout
and poster sessions; additionally, full papers will also be considered for
panel style discussions.

Papers and abstracts should be submitted through EasyChair at the following
