=========== CALL FOR PAPERS ===========

Second International Workshop on Human Factors and Computational Models 
in Negotiation
at the International Conference On Intelligent User Interfaces

(HuCom2010 @ IUI)

Sunday 7 February 2010

Hong Kong, China

29 November 2009: Paper submissions due
18 December 2009: Notification of acceptance / rejection
7 Jan 2009: Camera-ready copies of accepted papers

7 February 2010: Workshop
7-10 February International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI)

Negotiation is a complex and sometimes emotional decision-making process 
aiming to reach an agreement to exchange goods or services. Although a 
daily activity, extensive research has shown that few people are 
effective negotiators. Current state of the art negotiation support 
systems can help make a significant improvement in negotiation 
performance. In particular, when the negotiation space is 
well-understood, partly because machines can much better deal with the 
computational complexity involved. However, the negotiation space can 
only be properly developed if the human parties jointly explore their 
interests. The inherent semantic problem and the emotional issues 
involved make that negotiation cannot be handled by artificial 
intelligence alone, and a human-machine collaborative system is 
required. Such systems not only support humans with strategic advice but 
also provide advice on coping with emotions and moods in human-human 

To develop the next generation of support systems there are still many, 
diverse challenges, including: models of (qualitative, incomplete) 
preferences, preference change and strategies, preference elicitation,
assessment methods for negotiation performance, learning and 
adaptiveness in negotiation, models of emotion and user awareness.

Like its predecessor, HuCom08, this workshop aims to bring together, and 
build a community of researchers from artificial intelligence, 
human-computer interaction, affective computing as well as researchers 
who are interested in negotiation support from a psychological, 
economical or social sciences perspective. Whereas HuCom08 was a 
standalone workshop, it is now organized as an IUI Workshop because of 
the shared interest in the combination of AI and HCI. We feel that the 
two communities can greatly benefit from each others work.

Topics include but are not limited to:

 Negotiation strategies (bidding, acceptance)
 Recommender Systems
 Trust-inspiring user interfaces for decision-making support
 Usability and Social acceptability of decision-making support tools
 Argumentation for negotiation
 Learning in negotiation
 Negotiation domain knowledge
 Preference elicitation
 Qualitative preferences
 Incomplete preferences
 Ontologies for negotiation (protocols, preferences, domain knowledge)
 Negotiation Support Systems
 User interfaces for Negotiation Support Systems
 Human-machine negotiation
 Negotiation, conflict handling, and experiments related to e.g. 
consensus building
 Personality in negotiation (e.g. Big Five)
 Emotions in negotiation
 Cultural factors in negotiation
 Negotiation bidding advice
 Bargaining styles
 Trust in automatically generated negotiation advice
 Negotiation applications
 Methods and tools for negotiation tasks
 Design and Evaluation of support systems
 Conflict handling styles and consensus building
 HCI aspects and human factors of negotiation

We are pleased to solicit original and unpublished papers, currently not 
under review, for publication and presentation in the Workshop on Human 
Factors and Computational Models in Negotiation. Articles describing 
novel ideas and applications in all areas related to human factors and 
computational models in negotiation, preference elicitation, 
recommendations, or group decision are of interest. We also invite 
submissions of statements of interests, position papers and demos. 
Papers should not be more than 10 pages. Each submitted paper will be 
fully refereed by at least three referees. The reviewing process will be 
managed by an international program committee.

Papers will be published in the HuCom10 @ IUI workshop proceedings with 
an ISBN. Accepted papers will be considered for publication in a special 
issue of an international journal.

Submission is entirely automated by a paper management tool, which is 
available from the main web site: Authors must 
first register their own account by obtaining a password, and then 
follow the instructions.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be 
presented at the workshop.

A full-day workshop on February 7th, at the International Conference on 
Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI), that includes paper presentations, a 
demo session and ample room for discussion of the issues and ideas 
presented during the day.
