*2nd Call for Papers – ACM Intelligent Virtual Agents Conference - IVA 
2019 *

*2-5 July 2019, Paris, France*


_https://iva2019.sciencesconf.org <https://iva2019.sciencesconf.org/>_


The 19th ACM International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents 
(IVA) will be held on July 2-5 2019 in Paris, France. The conference is 
organized by CNRS, Sorbonne University and Paris-Saclay University 
(France), and sponsored by ACM-SIGAI.

The IVA conference started in 1998 as a workshop on Intelligent Virtual 
Environments at the European Conference on Artificial Intelligence in 
Brighton, UK, which was followed by a similar one in 1999 in Salford, 
Manchester, UK. Then dedicated stand-alone IVA conferences took place in 
Madrid, Spain, in 2001, Irsee, Germany, in 2003, and Kos, Greece, in 
2005. Since 2006 IVA has become a full-fledged annual international 
event, which was first held in Marina del Rey, California, then Paris, 
France, in 2007, Tokyo, Japan, in 2008, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in 
2009, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, in 2010, Reykjavik, Iceland, in 
2011, Santa Cruz, USA, in 2012, Edinburgh, UK, in 2013, Boston, USA, in 
2014, Delft, The Netherlands, 2015, Los Angeles, USA, 2016, Stockholm, 
Sweden, 2017. IVA 2018 was held in Sydney, Australia.


PAPER SUBMISSION

We invite submissions of research full papers on a broad range of 
topics, including but not limited to: theoretical foundations of virtual 
agents, agent modeling and evaluation, agents in games and simulations, 
and applications of virtual agents. Extended abstracts presenting late 
breaking work are also welcome.

IVA 2019 is the 19th meeting of 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. 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. In addition to presentations 
on theoretical issues, the conference encourages the showcasing of 
working applications.


IVA 2019’s special topic is “Social Learning”, that is learning while 
interaction socially; agents can learn from the humans and humans can 
learn from the agents. Agents can take different roles such as tutors, 
peers, motivators, coaches in training and in serious games. They can 
act as job recruiter, virtual patient, and nurse to name a few 
applications. With this topic in mind we are seeking closer engagement 
with industry and also with social psychologists.


For more information, please visit the IVA 2019 website:

The papers and extended abstracts will be published in the ACM digital 
library. All submissions will be reviewed via a double-blind review 
process.

WARNING: There is a conference called ICIVA 2019 that claims to be the 
21st International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents in Bali in 
October 2019. This conference is not the official IVA and is launched by 
an organization World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology 
that is unfortunately very famous for its predatory publishing practices.

Please note that no paper submitted to ICIVA 2019 in Bali will be 
published in the IVA 2019 proceedings.
