ISCApad #267

Thursday, September 10, 2020 by Chris Wellekens

3-3-32 (2021-01-?) ROBOTDIAL-2020 @Kyoto or Yokohama, Japan


ROBOTDIAL Workshop 2020
Robot Dialogues - Dialogue Models for Human-Robot Interaction


In conjunction with IJCAI 2020, Yokohama, Japan




The IJCAI-PRICAI-2020 conference will take place either in Kyoto (January 4-10) or in Yokohama (January 18-23) and the organizers have set new deadlines for the workshop program. Accordingly, the new submission deadline for ROBOTDIAL 2020 is

August 28, 2020 AoE (Anywhere on Earth).

The ROBOTDIAL-2020 workshop will be held in conjunction with the main conference, and it will take place both in-person and also virtually for those who can't come.

Please consider submitting a paper to the 1st RobotDial Workshop on Dialogue Models for Human-Robot Interaction. The submission detail and more information about the workshop can be found on the workshop website:

More information about the IJCAI-PRICAI conference will be on the conference website:

We are looking forward to seeing your at ROBOTDIAL2020 in-person or virtually in January.

Best wishes,
Kristiina, Martin, Divesh, and Pierre

==== Overview ====

Large communities in AI, robotics and interaction technology already work
on spoken language-based human-robot interaction. Their different starting
points and assumptions call for discussions, exchange of ideas and more
integrated approaches to implementations and modelling of spoken dialogues
on robot platforms.

This one-day workshop offers a platform for researchers to discuss and
elaborate their views at the intersection of AI, robotics and spoken
dialogue modelling. Sophisticated interaction models and implementations
are critical in this endeavour but are not often explicitly addressed.
Dialogue modelling and dialogue system implementations, on their part, are
often developed without sufficiently considering how the models could be
used in an embodied robotic system which also interacts with the
environment. The workshop offers a platform for discussions concerning
appropriate architectures and representations, in order to build a joint
understanding of the aspects and features that address the pertinent
questions in the multidisciplinary field of robot dialogues.

We invite submissions for this workshop based on (but not limited to) the
following topics:

- models of human-robot interactions and dialogue
- multimodal human-robot dialogue
- non-verbal communication in human-robot dialogue
- language modeling for robot interactions
- robots and unstructured conversation
- user studies with human-robot dialogue
- paralinguistics for robot interaction
- cognitive architectures for spoken dialogues
- representations for interaction and dialogue modelling

Looking forward to seeing you in Yokohama!
