DESIGNING HUMOR IN HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERACTION (HUMIC 2017)
Mumbai, India, 25 or 26 September 2017
http://workshop.colips.org/humic/

Workshop organized in conjunction with INTERACT 2017
Mumbai, India, 25-29 September 2017
https://www.interact2017.org/about

INTRODUCTION
Humour is pervasive in human social relationships and one of the most common ways to produce a positive affect in others. Research studies have shown that innocent humour increases likeability, boosts friendship, alleviates stress, encourages creativity and improves teamwork. Humour embraces various types of expression - both verbal and non-verbal - and can be used to enhance the interaction outcome while being socially and culturally appropriate.
While humour is a well-established branch in artificial intelligence and natural language processing communities, in the human-computer interaction field humour is rather regarded as marginal research topic, despite its positive effects scientifically proven by decades of research. Therefore, in this workshop we aim to explore challenges in designing and evaluating humourful interactions, as well as benefits and downsides of using humour in interactive tasks with artificial entities.

CONTRIBUTIONS
HUMIC (HUMor in InteraCtion) welcomes position and scientific papers from a wide range of disciplines, such as human-computer interaction, computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, social robotics, psychology, media, arts etc. Topics expected include - but are not limited to:
*             Computational humor approaches & applications
*             Humorous virtual agents & social robots & chatbots
*             Linguistics and non-linguistic challenges in designing humor
*             Evaluation approaches for humorous interactions
*             Humorous interactions with and within online communities and social networks
*             Cultural and social norms for appropriate humorous interactions
