AAAI Fall Symposium: AI for Human-Robot Interaction (AI-HRI)

Nov 9-11, 2017 -- Arlington, VA


AI-HRI (The AAAI Fall Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for
Human-Robot Interaction (HRI)) seeks to bring together the subset of the
HRI community focused on the application of AI solutions to HRI problems.
Building on the success of the three previous years’ symposia, the central
purpose of this year’s symposium is to address the statements “HRI is an AI
problem” and “AI is an HRI problem”. The symposium will include current
research talks and discussions both to share work in this intersectional
area and provide guidance for how to best frame AI-centric HRI work within
AI venues.  It will also include invited speaker panels to give different
perspectives on AI-for-HRI.  AI-HRI encourages also social scientists and
industry members to submit papers in all categories.


FULL  PAPERS: 6-8 pages

Should be highlighting state-of-the-art HRI-oriented AI research or HRI
research focusing on the use of autonomous AI systems. Full papers from
social science researchers can also discuss novel research on the
interaction between humans and autonomous robots.  Full papers from
 industry members can detail (a) the implementation of AI systems in their
commercial HRI products, including aspects of the software engineering or
design cycle that led to successful development and deployment or (b) novel
HRI-oriented AI research they have performed, whether or not it has been
implemented in a commercial product.

SHORT PAPERS: 3-4 pages

Should outline new or controversial views or describe ongoing computational
work. Short papers from social science researchers can also describe
challenges that social scientists encounter in designing, performing, or
evaluating studies in HRI which could be ameliorated by new or improved
tools, software packages, or artificial intelligence systems.  Short papers
from industry members can describe unrealized computational advances that
would facilitate the development, enhancement, or deployment of HRI

TOOL PAPERS: 1-2 pages

Should describe novel software, hardware, or datasets of interest to the
AI-HRI community.
