Call For Papers

Intelligent systems or robots that interact with their environment by perceiving, acting or communicating often face a challenge in how to bring these different concepts together. One of the main reasons for this challenge is the fact that the core concepts in perception, action and communication are typically studied by different communities: the computer vision, robotics and natural language processing communities, among others, without much interchange between them. As machine learning lies at the core of these communities, it can act as a unifying factor in bringing the communities closer together. Unifying these communities is highly important for understanding how state-of-the-art approaches from different disciplines can be combined (and applied) to form generally interactive intelligent systems.

The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers from multiple disciplines together who are in one way or another affected by the gap between action, perception and communication that typically exists for interactive systems or robots. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Machine Learning:
- Reinforcement Learning
- Supervised Learning
- Unsupervised Learning
- Active Learning
- Learning from human feedback
- Learning from teaching, tutoring, instruction and demonstration
- Combinations or generalisations of the above

Interactive Systems:
- (Socially) Interactive Robotics
- Embodied Virtual Agents
- Avatars
- Multimodal systems
- Cognitive (robotics) architectures

Types of Communication:
- System interacting with a single human user
- System interacting with multiple human users
- System interacting with the environment
- System interacting with other machines

Submissions can take two forms. Long papers should not exceed 6 pages, and short papers should not exceed 3 pages. They should follow the AAAI submission format. A LaTeX package can be downloaded here: http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Template/AuthorKit.zip
