REGISTRATION

Registration for the 17th International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA 2017) is now open. Early bird registration fee applies until July 25th 2017.

CONFERENCE

IVAs are interactive digital characters that exhibit human-like qualities and can communicate with humans and each other using natural human modalities like facial expressions, speech and gesture. They are capable of real-time perception, cognition, emotion and action that allow them to participate in dynamic social environments.
The International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA) is an interdisciplinary annual conference and the main leading scientific forum for presenting research on modeling, developing and evaluating intelligent virtual agents (IVAs) with a focus on communicative abilities and social behavior.


SPECIAL TOPIC

IVA 2017's special topic is 'Situated Intelligent Agents', that is, agents that have awareness of and/or make use of their environment (physical or virtual). The theme will address the synergies between agents with different embodiments, from embodied virtual characters to social robots. Advances in both domains require the development of computational capabilities that allow robots and virtual characters to engage in those direct, unstructured and dynamically evolving social interactions that characterise humans.


KEYNOTES

Bilge Mutlu, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
