Call For Papers

Connecting Multiple Disciplines to AI Techniques in Interaction-centric Autism Research and Diagnosis (ICARD)

Prague, Czechia
Collocated with SigDial 2023 and INLG 2023

Submission page:

Child-centered language-based interaction can help adults understand language development in children, identify deficits, and mediate targeted interventions for neuro-developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners with backgrounds across different disciplines including psychology, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and autism research to:
Discuss how to connect these disciplines to different AI techniques for autism research and diagnosis.
Foster collaboration across disciplines and institutions to construct multimodal interaction-centric datasets for autism research.

We welcome submissions on one or more of the following topics:

- Multimodal information processing of interactions involving people with symptoms of autism
- Datasets of autism behavior: child-child, child-parent, child-researcher and multi-party conversation
- Application of Social science and AI techniques in autism understanding and diagnosis
- Speech recognition for autism
- Conversational tools for language development in autism
- Dialogue modeling for autism diagnosis and intervention
- AI-mediated tools for improving cognitive and social development in autism
- Applications, demos, and resources for studying social interaction and dialogue in autism


We welcome reports of original research in the form of two types:
Long papers (8 pages + references)
Short papers (4 pages + references)
We also welcome submission of non-archival one page abstracts describing work in progress.
We encourage all authors to include relevant discussions of ethical considerations and impact in the body of the paper.

Non-archival option

Authors have the option of submitting previously unpublished research as non-archival, meaning that only the abstract will be published in the proceedings. We expect these submissions to describe the same quality of work as archival submissions. These will be reviewed following the same procedure as archival submissions.

Submission Format

All long, short, and abstract submissions must follow the two-column ACL format , which are available as an Overleaf template and also downloadable directly (Latex and Word). Please refer to the SIGDIAL 2023 website for the most recent version of the templates.

All submissions should be anonymized to facilitate double blind reviewing.

Any questions regarding submissions can be sent to
