Dear friends, colleagues, and fellow researchers,

This is Stela Seo, a publicity co-chair at the 7th International Conference
on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2019,
HAI is a growing international conference with an interdisciplinary nature
and looking for your participation.

Please spread the news!


* The 7th International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2019) *

                              *** Kyoto, Japan --- 6-10, October 2019 ***


HAI 2019 is the 7th annual International Conference on Human-Agent
Interaction. 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

The theme for HAI 2019 is “Human-Agent Interaction, the Heart of Artificial

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.

While all submissions related to HAI are welcome, 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.

Full papers, posters, late-breaking results, and tutorial/workshop
overviews of HAI 2019 will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.
