The Third International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2015)
Daegu, Korea, October 21-24, 2015

People are increasingly interacting with computerized agents. Examples include autonomous and tele-presence robots in homes, healthcare, or search and rescue, virtual characters in the expanding gaming industry or for serious games, and agents representing other people through on-line social and interactive meeting places. Although these broad areas have their own unique research challenges, there is a clear commonality to be addressed in the investigation of how people interact with agents, whether they have physical or virtual embodiments, or represent remote people or an AI algorithm; this commonality requires explicit consideration.

The Third International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2015, in co-operation with ACM SIGCHI) aims to be the premier interdisciplinary venue for discussing and disseminating state-of-the-art research and results that have implications across conventional interaction boundaries including robots, software agents and digitally-mediated human-human communication. HAI will gather researchers from fields spanning engineering, computer science, psychology and sociology, and will cover diverse topics, including: human-robot interaction, affective computing, computer-supported collaborative work, gaming and serious games, artificial intelligence, and more.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,

  • design of Human-Agent Interaction, including quantitative and qualitative results
  • theoretical models of Human-Agent Interaction/li>
  • impacts of embodiment (e.g., physical vs digital, human vs animal-like)
  • experimental methods for Human-Agent Interaction

This includes more targeted results that have implications to the
broader human-agent interaction community:

  • human-robot interaction
  • human-virtual agent interaction
  • interaction with smart homes and smart cars
  • distributed groupware where people have remote embodiments and representations
  • and more!


Important Dates

We are happy to announce workshops at this year’s HAI. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

Submission and Reviewing

The PCS submission site is now online.

HAI 2015 will accept ONLY online submissions of PDF files (no MS Word, Latex, etc.). Paper submissions should be at least 4 pages but no more than 8 pages. Similarly, poster submissions should be at least 2 pages and no more than 4 pages. All submissions will be reviewed by three reviewers and will receive a meta review for quality assurance. The paper will be evaluated on the basis of research originality, excellence, and significance, and relevance to HAI. We also invite position papers, preliminary (but high impact) studies, and concept papers.

All papers MUST be in the ACM SIGCHI Paper format; be sure to leave the ACM copyright area blank. All submissions should be anonymous. Please visit the submission page to prepare and submit your papers. All accepted papers (except workshop papers) will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.


Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentations
All presentations must be in English. If other languages are present (in video data, etc.), English subtitles should be provided. Each presenter will have 15 minutes for their presentation and 5 minutes for questions. The projector uses VGA, so please bring an appropriate adapter for your computer.

Please arrive to your session early for testing your presentation (especially if you have audio or video). Before the session is usually quite busy, but there is often plenty of time in the morning to test as well (before the presentations start for the day). If you have any other special needs for the presentation, please contact the Secretariat ( as soon as possible.

Poster Presentation
Posters must be in English. If other languages are present, English subtitles should be provided. Each poster should include the title (preferably at the top), as well as the names and affiliations of the authors. Posters must not exceed A0 size (841 mm wide, 1189mm high).

Posters should be mounted the day of your presentation. Mounting should be done between 09:00 to 09:30 on the day you present. Dismounting should be done from 18:30 to 19:00 after you present. All posters not removed by 19:00 each day will automatically removed and thrown out.
