Workshop & Tutorials

Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals


We invite proposals for Workshops and Tutorials to be held at HAI 2016 Conference, which will take place during the main conference scheduled for 4-7 October, 2016 Singapore.

The workshop and tutorial sessions aim to provide an opportunity to discuss current and emergent topics on Human-Agent Interaction including but not limited to research topics, application, design and implication concerning the social aspects of agent interfacing. In particular, we welcome both full and half day workshop and tutorial proposals that bridge the gap between theoretical advances and innovative applications of Human-Agent interaction.

Guidelines for proposals

Workshop and tutorial proposals should contain the necessary information for the respective chairs and reviewers to judge the importance, quality and community interest in the proposed topic. Each workshop/tutorial should have one or more designated organizers and a workshop/tutorial program. When proposing a workshop/tutorial, please provide the following information:

  • A concise title
  • A description of the specific issues that the workshop/tutorial will address, the reasons why the workshop/tutorial is of interest to the community, and the main research areas involved.
