Workshop/Tutorial Submissions

Workshops/Tutorials Submission Guidelines

We invite proposals for workshops and tutorials to be held at the HAI 2020 Conference in Sydney, Australia, 10-13 November 2020. The workshop and tutorial sessions aim to provide an opportunity to discuss current and emergent topics on Human-Agent Interaction. The HAI conference seeks relevent proposals from a broad range of disciplines such as engineering, computer science, psychology, sociology, cognitive science, business, advertising/marketing and design. Topics of workshops/tutorials include, but are not limited to:

  • studies of Human-Agent Interaction; with a quantitative/qualitative approach; across a wide variety of application areas
  • technological advances;
  • experimental methods;
  • impacts of embodiment;
  • character and avatar design;
  • agents in social networks;
  • specific application for agents in retail, business and marketing and
  • experience design

We welcome both full and half day workshops and tutorials that bridge the gap between theoretical advances and innovative applications of Human-Agent Interaction.

Please note: Tutorials are conceptually different to workshops. Tutorials are given by expert instructors, typically with established reputations, teaching people new to a topic. Workshops are meetings of experts exploring new knowledge.
