The 9th International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2021)
Virtually Everywhere, November 9-11, 2021
The Ninth International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI 2021, in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI) aims to be the premier interdisciplinary venue for discussing and disseminating state-of-the-art research and results that have implications across conventional interaction boundaries including robots, software agents and digitally-mediated human-human communication.
The theme for HAI 2021 will be “Distributed Together, Making Connections”. Due to the pandemic, we have been forced to disperse physically. As a result, online video conferencing and communication through social networking services are becoming more popular, with some drawbacks. Agents and avatar systems that mediate and extend human society may help us to overcome this isolation. Such systems could contribute by helping us to make connections while we are apart from each other. While all submissions related to HAI are welcome, you are especially encouraged to submit papers in line with the theme for HAI 2021.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
studies of Human-Agent Interaction, with quantitative/qualitative results;
theoretical models;
technological advances;
experimental methods;
impacts of embodiment;
character and avatar design; and
agents in social networks.
agents in business and marking
experience design
