The 8th International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2020)
                   *** Sydney, Australia  --- 10-13, November 2020 ***
(Under construction)

HAI 2020 is the 8th annual International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction. The conference 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 and humanoids, virtual agents, socially interactive agents, and artificially intelligent agents.

The topical issues within the conference include user studies, frameworks, simulations, technical developments and  relevant theoretical contributions more within the area of Human Agent and Robotic Interaction. The conference brings together a large variety of research groups, companies and researchers looking into the broader area of agents and robotics across Australia and the rest of the world.

The theme for HAI 2020 will be “Artificial Intelligence + Experience Design”. The advent of artificial intelligence, in the past decade, has motivated researchers to focus on several algorithmic prospects in developing intelligent robotics agent and their interactions. Progressively, AI advances are leading to exciting outcomes in the HAI field and at the same time opening up a wide perspective on how to design intelligent robotic agents. Particularly, how to combine artificial intelligence and user experience design approaches in human-agent interaction.

While all submissions related to HAI are welcome, prospective authors are especially encouraged to submit papers in line with the theme for HAI 2020. The HAI conference seeks contributions from a broad range of disciplines such as engineering, computer science, psychology, sociology, cognitive science, business, advertising/marketing and design.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
- studies of Human-Agent Interaction, with quantitative/qualitative results; across a wide variety of application areas
- theoretical models;
- technological advances;
- experimental methods;
- impacts of embodiment;
- character and avatar design;
- agents in social networks;
- specifically application of agents in retail, business and marketing and
- experience design

Since 2014, HAI proceedings are published in-cooperation with ACM, and 2020 is in the process of achieving a similar status.
