           Second International Workshop on

    COMMUNICATION BETWEEN HUMAN AND ARTIFICIAL AGENTS
                      (CHAA-07)

           Silicon Valley, 2-5 November 2007 (1 day)

      http://www.cs.umanitoba.ca/~ckemke/CHAA-07/
	
**********************************************************

CHAA'07 takes place in conjunction with the IAT/WI/GrC/BIBM Conference:
http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/wi07/


WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

The ability to communicate in a complex manner with others, to exchange
ideas and thoughts, to convey factual information as well as wishes,
goals, and plans, to issue commands, instructions and questions, and to
express emotions and interact on a social level, is one of the most
important and distinguishing aspects of humankind. If artificial agents
want to progress to the next level, and truly and deeply interact with
humans, they must possess expanded communicative abilities.

Interdisciplinary research, integrating methods and models from computer
science, psychology, engineering, linguistics, philosophy, mathematics,
and others, has provided a basis for the development of artificial
agents and an extension of their "human" characteristics and abilities.

Building on the approaches developed so far, this workshop focuses on
new methods and models to describe and implement communication between
human and artificial agents, in all forms and on all levels. The
ultimate goal of this endeavour is to bridge the gap between the
richness, complexity and expressiveness of human communication, and the
(in)ability of artificial agents to interact and communicate adequately
with their human partners.

TOPIC AREAS:

    * models of communicative behaviour
    * natural language and speech as interaction medium
    * dialogue in human-agent communication
    * gestures and facial expressions
    * emotions, affective computing
    * multi-modal communication
    * human-like virtual and physical agents
    * human-robot interaction
    * knowledge representation and ontologies for communication
    * action ontology, action theory, action representation
    * context modelling (physical, spatial, temporal, dialogue context)
    * speech characteristics in communication
    * learning of interactive behaviours,
    * learning in interactions, imitation learning
    * cooperative behaviour, negotiation, judgement
    * social interaction, social behaviours, social norms and roles
    * applications, e.g. games, virtual reality, user interfaces
    * technical realization

IMPORTANT DATES:

    * Paper submission: extended to 30 June 2007 (!)
    * Author notification: 3 August 2007
    * Camera-ready copy: 17 August 2007
    * Workshop: 1 day during IAT/WI/GrC/BIBM Conference, 2-5 Nov 2007

PAPER SUBMISSION:

Accepted workshop papers will be included in the Workshop Proceedings
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, which are indexed by EI.

The length of submitted papers should NOT exceed 4 pages (IEEE-CS
