Call For Papers

Workshop on Language-Based AI Agent Interaction with Children

February 21st, 2023, in Los Angeles, USA & Virtual (Hybrid Format)
Paper Submission Deadline: December 21st, 2022


In this workshop, we aim to bring together researchers looking into multimodal interactions between children and artificial agents to discuss research problems that center around interactivity and go beyond just processing child speech. We are interested in discussing approaches to collecting and annotating datasets involving child speech, intent classification in child speech, designing dialogue flow with artificial agents that primarily interact with children, as well as repair strategies, active listening behavior, and other aspects of dialogue modeling. Moreover, multiparty conversations involving several children, children, and their adult caregivers or several artificial agents are of particular interest to this workshop.

Acknowledging the early-stage nature of research in this area, the workshop will invite short position papers as contributions. In addition to selected talks that will be invited based on the submitted papers, we will host roundtable discussions allowing attendees to discuss ideas, share challenges they have faced, and highlight ideas for future research. 

## Topics of Interest
The workshop welcomes contributions across a wide range of topics including, but not limited to:
Natural Language Understanding of Child Speech 
Dialogue Modeling of Child-Agent, Child-Robot, Child-Child, and Child-Adult Speech 
Conversational Flow and Repair in Dialogue with Children 
Multiparty-Interaction Involving Children 
Multimodal Processing of Child Interactions 
Automatic Speech Recognition of Child Speech 
Evaluating Child Interactions with Artificial Agents/Robots
Challenges in Designing Interactions for Children 
Datasets of Child-Child, Child-Adult, or Child-Agent/Robot Interaction
Ethics and Responsible AI for Child-Agent/Robot Interaction

## Important Dates
- Paper submission deadline: December 21st, 2022
- Author Notification deadline: January 20th, 2023
- Workshop: February 21st, 2023 (morning session)

## Submission Guidelines
We invite short position papers of 3-4 pages (plus additional pages for references and appendices without page limitation), including work in progress containing preliminary results, technical reports, case studies, surveys, and state-of-the-art research in language-based AI agent interactions with children. Recently submitted or published papers are welcome to be submitted to this workshop if they are highly relevant to the topic of the workshop. Please select the appropriate track during the EasyChair submission to mark the submission accordingly.

Papers will be reviewed for their relevance, novelty, and scientific and technical soundness.
Submissions do not need to be anonymized for review. All manuscripts must be written in English and submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair.

Accepted papers will be published on the workshop website. However, papers are still considered non-archival and can be submitted to other conferences.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their paper during the workshop in the form of a short talk, which can either be given in person in Los Angeles, USA, or virtually via Zoom.
