Call For Papers
We live in exciting times, where Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made things possible that were earlier unimaginable. Those robots from Terminator, I Robot and Wall-E always felt like they were centuries away, but AI has paved a path to bring them to life. The question we ask is what will make AI agents human-like? What are those aspects, and how can we develop algorithms and techniques to make progress in achieving those aspects.
In this workshop, we would like to initiate and promote research into those aspects of the agent interaction which play a key role in providing a human-like persona or capabilities. All papers submitted in the workshop are non-archival and we welcome early works. This format allows authors to seek early feedback on their work and not restrict publication to different forum at a later stage.
We will accept submissions in 2 categories.
Submitted papers must be formatted according to IJCAI guidelines (details here); in summary, all contributions should be no longer than 6 single-spaced pages (5 pages max for content, 1 page for references).
Contributions may be submitted as: (1). technical papers; (2) position statements; or (3) survey papers.
We are accepting abstracts of papers previously presented at other top-tier conferences to be presented in our workshop as a lightning talk. Participants that are presenting in the main conference and would like to participate are also free to submit their work under this track. Under this category a one page abstract can be submitted.
Submissions should only be made electronically as PDF documents via the paper submission site. All submissions are single blind. Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hai19
