Welcome to HAI 2020

The 8th International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction           10-13th November, Sydney, Australia

HAI 2020 is the 8th annual International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction. The conference 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 and humanoids, virtual agents, socially interactive agents, and artificially intelligent agents. The topical issues within the conference include user studies, frameworks, simulations, technical developments and more within the area of Human Agent and Robotic Interaction. The conference brings together a large variety of research groups, companies and researchers looking into the broader area of agents and robotics across Australia, Japan and the rest of the world.

The theme for HAI 2020 will be “Artificial Intelligence + Experience Design”. The advent of artificial intelligence, in the past decade, has motivated researchers to focus on several algorithmic prospects in developing intelligent robotics agent and their interactions. Progressively, AI advances are leading to exciting outcomes in the HAI field and at the same time opening up for a wide prospective on how to design intelligent robotic agents. Particularly, how to combine artificial intelligence and user experience design approaches in human-agent interaction.While all submissions related to HAI are welcome, you are especially encouraged to submit papers in line with the theme for HAI 2020. The HAI conference seeks contributions from a broad range of disciplines such as engineering, computer science, psychology, sociology, cognitive science, business, marking and design.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • studies of Human-Agent Interaction, with quantitative/qualitative results;
  • theoretical models;
  • technological advances;
  • experimental methods;
  • impacts of embodiment;
  • character and avatar design; and
  • agents in social networks.
  • agents in business and marking
  • experience design

Since 2014, HAI proceedings are published incooperation with ACM, and 2020 is in the process of achieving a similar status.
