*** HAI 2017 Call for Papers ***

The Fifth International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2017)

Bielefeld, Germany ~ 17 – 20 October 2017

HAI 2017 is the 5th annual International Conference on Human-Agent

Interaction. It 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 2017 is “How autonomy shapes interaction”. During the

last decade a large body of research has been devoted on increasing the

interaction quality with artificial agents. This has now reached a quite

convincing level for focused application scenarios. However, with robots

and agents entering our everyday lives such scenarios will require more

initiative and flexibility from the agent, i.e. more autonomy. Such

autonomous behavior means, on the other hand, that the interaction will

become less predictable. This may become problematic given the strong

research focus on statistical behavior models that focus on observable

behavior based on rather shallow structures. These models may not be able

to capture the underlying interaction structure in less restricted

scenarios. We thus need a better understanding and model of the underlying

interaction principles that not only takes situational and task aspects

into account but also includes detailed user models. Therefore, a

stronger research focus is needed to better understand the underlying

principles of interaction between autonomous agents, leading to better and

deeper models of interaction. We thus encourage contributions that try to

tackle this question by focusing on more realistic and life-like


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

– and more!

Full papers, posters, late-breaking results, tutorial/workshop overviews

will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.
