We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this CfP


HAI 2019 is the 7th annual International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction, in Kyoto, Japan, 6-10th October 2019. It is a venue with an interdisciplinary nature to discuss and disseminate state-of-the-art research on topics that relate to human interactions with a range of agent systems, including physical robots, virtual agents, socially interactive agents, and artificially intelligent agents.

The theme for HAI 2019 is "Human-Agent Interaction, the Heart of Artificial Intelligence."

Due to the rapid progress of deep learning, AI has reached a human or superhuman level in image recognition and games such as Go and is approaching the level of human in speech recognition, translation, automatic driving, and many other applications. It can be said that Human-Agent Interaction (HAI) has now become the most exciting target area of AI.

We invite poster presentations and proposals for workshops and tutorials for HAI 2019.

** CALL FOR WORKSHOP & TUTORIAL PROPOSALS (09 July 2019 submission due) **

HAI 2019 workshop and tutorial sessions aim to provide an opportunity to discuss current and emergent topics on Human-Agent Interaction including but not limited to research topics, application, design and implication concerning the social aspects of agent interfacing. In particular, we welcome both full and half day workshop and tutorial proposals that bridge the gap between theoretical advances and innovative applications of Human-Agent Interaction. Please note: Tutorials are conceptually different to Workshops. Tutorials are given by expert instructors, typically with established reputations, teaching people new to a topic. Workshops are meetings of experts exploring new knowledge.

* Guidelines for proposals

Workshop and tutorial proposals should contain the necessary information for the respective chairs and reviewers to judge the importance, quality and community interest in the proposed topic. Each workshop/tutorial should have one or more designated organizers and a workshop/tutorial program. When proposing a workshop/tutorial, please provide the following information:
    - A concise title;
    - A description of the specific issues that the workshop/tutorial will address, the reasons why the workshop/tutorial is of interest to the community, and the main research areas involved;
    - Proposed duration of the workshop/tutorial – half or full day;
    - The names and affiliations of the organizers;
    - A tentative list of Program Committee members
    - A draft of the Call for Papers, including information on accepted formats and expected format of the workshop/tutorial (e.g., invited talks, presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions, challenge sessions, or other ideas for ensuring an interactive atmosphere);

Any special requirements regarding logistics (e.g. poster stands, more than one projector), if applicable.

Note that the workshop/tutorial would not be in main conference venue but in an adjacent university.

* Proposal Submission

Please submit your workshop proposals by e-mail to the HAI workshop chairs: [log in to unmask]

Please submit your tutorial proposals by e-mail to the HAI tutorial chairs: [log in to unmask]

For any inquiries, please also email to these email addresses, respectively.

* Important Dates

Workshop/Tutorial Proposals:
    – 9 July 2019: Proposal Submission
    – 23 July 2019: Notifications

** CALL FOR POSTERS (16 July 2019 submission due) **

While all submissions related to HAI are welcome as usual, you are especially encouraged to submit papers in line with the theme for HAI 2019, “Human-Agent Interaction, the Heart of Artificial Intelligence.” We are looking forward to sharing the latest research results of HAI that contribute to elucidate the mechanism of intelligence, implementation reports of groundbreaking HAI utilizing cutting-edge AI technology, and advanced research results of the boundary region between HAI and AI such as interactive machine learning and human-AI partnerships.

The HAI conference seeks contributions from a broad range of disciplines such as engineering, computer science, psychology, sociology, cognitive science, and design.

    Topics include, but are not limited to:
        - studies of Human-Agent Interaction, with quantitative/qualitative results;
        - theories, design aspects and evaluations of human-agent interaction;
        - theoretical models;
        - technological advances;
        - experimental methods;
        - impacts of embodiment;
        - character and avatar design;
        - agents in social networks;
        - user experience design with social agents; and
        - digitally-mediated human-human communication.

Posters will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.

The PCS submission site is now online. Please submit your work to HAI 2019 via the PCS submission system:

HAI 2019 will accept ONLY online submissions of PDF files (no MS Word, Latex, etc.). Poster submissions are up to 2 pages. References are NOT included in the page count.

All submissions should be non-anonymized – the accepted poster submissions will be directly used as a camera-ready draft. There will be no chance after acceptance to update your paper, so please write and edit your manuscript carefully.

All papers MUST be in the ACM Conference Paper format; be sure to leave the ACM copyright area blank. This area will be changed in accordance with the ACM publication process (including conference name, ISSN, etc.).

All submissions will be reviewed by PC members for quality assurance. Posters will be evaluated on the basis of research originality, significance, and relevance to HAI.

Here is the detail of paper format and template file links:

for LaTeX users:

* Poster Presentation

Authors of accepted posters are required to show your work as a poster during the poster session. Please note that your poster must be no larger than an A0 portrait. A poster in A0 landscape cannot be used.

* Important Dates

Poster Papers (up to 2 pages – NOT including references)
    – 16 July 2019: Paper Submission
