Symbiotic Interactions between Users and Intelligent Systems
Papers are due:  June 1
Computers are moving off of the desktop and into real-world tasks. They emerge
in robots, in health care, in smart classrooms and meeting rooms to name
several instances. Users of these computer systems need to move from the
traditional master-slave relationship between users and computers to
relationship where the partners understand each others goals and intentions as
well as capabilities and constraints and are able to work cooperatively to
accomplish tasks.

We solicit topics in:

-         interaction with adjustable autonomous systems
-         research in augmenting human cognition, including assessment of
cognitive state
-         architectures to support symbiotic interaction
-         case studies of user interfaces/interactions with intelligent
-         metrics and methodologies for evaluation of symbiotic interactions
-         development of models of computers for users and development of
models of users for computers
-         social impact, including issues of trust and privacy and monitoring
cognitive status
-         acquisition and utilization of context
