* 6th International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2018) *

           *** Southampton, UK  --- 15-18 December 2018 ***

HAI 2018 is the 6th 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 reach across conventional interaction boundaries from people to a
wide range of intelligent systems, including physical robots, software
agents and digitally-mediated human-human communication. HAI focusses
on technical as well as social aspects.

The theme for HAI 2018 is *Trustworthy Interaction*. During the last
decade, much research has been devoted to increasing the interaction
quality between humans and artificial intelligent agents. At the same
time, more and more intelligent systems are generating decisions,
either autonomously or with people "in-the-loop". Many questions
arise when considering the trustworthiness of intelligent systems,
operating on their own or in collaboration with people. Do users
trust these systems? Do the systems trust people? How can systems
gain users' trust, and vice versa? What happens if trust is lost?
How is trust modelled? How is trust evaluated?

As robots and agents enter our everyday lives, interactions will
require more initiative and flexibility from agents, i.e., greater
autonomy and intelligence; however, outcomes may be less predictable.
Current research trends which emphasise statistical behaviour models
constructed from observations may only capture rather shallow
structures and may overlook more complex aspects that underly less
restricted exchanges. We strive for better understanding and models
of interaction principles that take into account not only situational
and task aspects but also detailed user models. More research is
necessary to lead the way towards deeper and more robust models of
human-agent interaction. HAI encourages contributions that tackle
these questions in realistic, practical settings.

The HAI conference contributions come from a broad range of fields
spanning engineering, computer science, psychology and sociology,
covering diverse areas, including:

- human-robot interaction;
- intelligent systems;
- affective computing;
- computer-supported collaborative work;
- gaming/serious games; and
- artificial intelligence.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- studies of Human-Agent Interaction, with quantitative/qualitative results;
- theoretical models;
- technological advances;
- experimental methods;
- impacts of embodiment;
- character and avatar design; and
- agents in social networks.
