Call For Papers



Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, Virginia.
Thursday through Saturday, November 11–13.

The general aim of this symposium is to be a venue for the debate and exchange of ideas on the challenges of creating agents that help human users to operate in complex dynamic environments where they face challenges due to cognitive overload in planning and re-planning. In these circumstances, users must perform multiple concurrent tasks including: collecting coherent information about the current situation, reasoning about constraints and policies, and dealing with uncertainty to achieve timely decision making. People have limitations in the amount of information that can be meaningfully processed at the same time; consequently, the agent must make sure that the amount of help provided is compatible with the user's ability to cope with it. In order to help the users to cope with cognitive overload in such an environment, proactive agents can offer context-sensitive assistance by: anticipating the users' needs; autonomously planning assistive actions; and offering assistance in an appropriate format at a right time.

The symposium will consist of a mixture of presentations and discussions, with a focus on the direct discussion of specific topics motivated by the presented papers. We invite the submission of high-quality papers through EasyChair as linked in the symposium website. Submissions must be in PDF format with a 6-page limit in AAAI style. Authors of accepted papers will give a short 10-minute presentation followed by vigorous discussions in smaller groups.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Plan and Goal Recognition
* User Modeling
* Information Gathering and Filtering
* Information Adaptation and Presentation
* Cognitive Load Assessment
* Applications of Information Assistants
* Proactive assistance for Human Teams
