 Call for Long/Short Papers, Abstracts, Demos and Posters

 2nd Workshop on INTERFACE AND EXPERIENCE DESIGN

 WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGNECE AND AI/VR (DAIVAR)

In conjunction with the IEEE Artificial Intelligence Virtual Reality (AIVR)
Conference

 - 10th-12th December 2018

 - Taichung, Taiwan

 - Submission Deadline: 14th October 2018

 - Website:
http://www.artur-lugmayr.com/activities/current-activities/daivar2018/ 

 - Submission System:
http://www.ambientmediaassociation.org/Submissions/2018DAIVAR/

 - Workshop proceedings published in an Scopus indexed proceedings series

 - Best papers will be published as edited book, or journal special issue

======================================================================================================================

The objective of this workshop is to invite scholars and practitioners to
discuss synergies between interface and

experience design in artificial intelligent reality virtual and augmented
environments. The aim is to gather a cross-

disciplinary team of contributors researching HCI related issues
contributing to this fascinating newly emerging

domain. We especially seek contributions from experts with a background in
computer science, HCI,

psychology/cognitive sciences, culture/communication studies, design and
art to develop this fascinating

intersection. Aspects can range from user-experience, technologies
supporting end-users, practical applications,

methods, content production, cultural implications, communication theories,
up to more artistic approaches in

artificial intelligent interaction.

While AI's main aim is to replicate human intelligence, AR and VR focuses
its research efforts on the creation of

artificial worlds either in complete virtual world, or as part of our
physical environment. Many examples that bridge

the two fields have emerged recently, e.g. intelligence in digital games
and the utilization of computer graphics

hardware for deep learning and AI. Philosophical discussions around issues
arising in this new area range from ideas

when things start to think to Alan Turing's work. In this workshop, we
would like to raise a question: what would

happen when artificial worlds start to think, and how we humans can
interact and communicate with AI through e.g.

affective interfaces? Thus, while AI and VR/AR went rather distinct
research pathways, we attempt to bring them

together, and discuss different aspects at the intersection of machine
intelligence and human interaction in a mixed

reality.

The workshop intends to attract a broad range of contributions to develop
this scholarly field during a full day venue.

As the emphasis is on creating the synergy between VR/AR and AI/ML, we are
not limited to particular areas; instead,

the following exemplary topics might help to gather ideas for a possible
contribution: affective and emotional

computation, communication with AI, digital game analytics, utilization of
computer graphics hardware for deep

learning, personalization and recommender systems, UX with agents and
physical robots, cultural robotics, or AI in

information visualization.

The workshop program stretches over a full-day, and will contain a
combination of invited keynote presentations,

oral presentations, posters, and demonstrations.

The workshop proceedings will be published in a Scopus indexed proceedings
series, and the very best contribution

will be published in an edited book from a highly reputable publisher which
has been pre-arranged. Depending on

the quality and amount of contributions, we are also considering to publish
a journal special issue within an indexed

publisher.
