Submission

We invite students and researchers in a field related to Human-Agent Interaction to submit a report of their fascinating work. Should you consider to participate in NGHAI 2017, please submit an extended abstract.

The extended abstract should be an anonymized and 2-4 pages long, and describe the applicant's past, current, and/or proposed work. Please use ACM_SigConf format available in ACM Master Article Template without the copyright box (i.e., please remove the copyright section).

The abstract should include:
    • the key research questions/motivation,
    • background and related work,
    • research methodology,
    • results to date (if any), and
    • remaining or future work.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
    • designs and studies of Human-Agent Interaction, including quantitative and qualitative results,
    • theoretical models of Human-Agent Interaction,
    • technological advances in Human-Agent Interaction,
    • impacts of embodiment (e.g., physical vs digital, human vs animal-like),
    • experimental methods for Human-Agent Interaction,
    • character and avatar design in video games,
    • agents in social network.

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!

Please submit your work by email (NGHAI Workshop <nghaiworkshop@gmail.com>). In the submission, please include your name, affiliation, and extended abstract in PDF.

Review process

The Next Generation Human-Agent Interaction Workshop will follow the peer-review process, that is, submissions will be evaluated by peers based on various factors including:
    • the quality of the submission,
    • the expected benefits of the workshop for the applicant, and
    • the applicant's contribution and backgrounds to the field.
We would like to provide the opportunity for the next generation researchers to share their fascinating works and to build collaborative relations internationally.

Publication & Attendance

The presentation of this workshop will ten-minute oral presentation with five-minute questions and answers. Unlike last year, participants do not need to prepare poster for their submission. Through presentation, speakers gain an opportunity to present their works to a large audience and to interact more deeply with people who are interested in details.
