[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] 2nd CFP: AAAI-19 Workshop on Plan Activity and Intent Recognition (PAIR 2019) - including updates

Sarah Keren
                      PAIR 2019 2nd Call for Papers
AAAI-19 Workshop on Plan Activity and Intent Recognition (PAIR 2019) held
at the Thirty-Third AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-19)


January 27 or January 28, 2019, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

             Website: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.planrec.org_PAIR_Resources.html&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=TQkkQPZ1XeF1oF1BClUiuv5VZENLnY9SimfLtBjGK20&s=SicMc-mbz1yrvOmI9_EeU7YZnv_YVpU1P7-h9uU9IPU&e=


Submissions due:  November 5, 2018

Notification:   November 26, 2018

Plan recognition, activity recognition, and intent recognition all involve
making inferences about other actors from observations of their behavior,
i.e., their interaction with the environment and with each other. The
observed actors may be software agents, robots, or humans. This synergistic
area of research combines and unifies techniques from user modeling,
machine vision, automated planning, intelligent user interfaces,
human/computer interaction, autonomous and multi-agent systems, natural
language understanding, and machine learning. It plays a crucial role in a
wide variety of applications including: assistive technology, software
assistants, computer and network security, behavior recognition,
coordination in robots and software agents, and more.

This workshop seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from
diverse backgrounds, to share ideas and recent results. It aims to identify
important research directions, opportunities for synthesis and unification
of representations and algorithms for recognition.

Contributions are sought in the following areas:

-Algorithms for plan, activity, intent, or behavior recognition
-Machine learning and uncertain reasoning for plan recognition and user
-Hybrid probabilistic and logical approach to plan and intent recognition
-Modeling users and intents on the web and in intelligent user interface
-Modeling users and intents in speech and natural language dialogue
-High-level activity and event recognition in video
-Algorithms for intelligent proactive assistance
-Modeling multiple agents, modeling teams and collaboration teamwork
-Modeling social interactions and social network analysis
-Adversarial planning, opponent modeling
-Intelligent tutoring systems (ITS)
-Programming by demonstration
-Cognitive models of intent recognition
-Inferring emotional states

Related contributions in other fields, are also welcome.

This year's workshop will be centered around the past and future of PAIR.
This will include an introspection of previous approaches and a group
discussion about possible future directions for the community.


We welcome submissions describing either relevant work or proposals for
discussion topics that will be of interest to the workshop.

Submissions are accepted in PDF format only, using the AAAI-19 formatting
guidelines. Submissions must be no longer than 8 pages in length, with the
last page including only references and figures.

Submissions are anonymous, and must conform to the AAAI-19 instructions for
double-blind review.

Submission will be done through EasyChair, and can be found by clicking
this link: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_conferences_-3Fconf-3Dpair19&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=TQkkQPZ1XeF1oF1BClUiuv5VZENLnY9SimfLtBjGK20&s=Da_Nb9hRHBRcKIBkiXYYzhHo2r3UrefM1bEDtKvIY7A&e=

Additional notes:

In addition to the PAIR workshop, at AAAI we will be organizing a tutorial
on plan activity and intent recognition. Not only do we want to encourage
you to attend, we want you to participate.  A significant portion of the
tutorial will be a presentation of the state of the art.  This will be most
compelling if we can present as diverse set of approaches as possible, and
we would like your help with this.  Established researchers in the area
interested in having their work being presented, can provide a small number
of slides (in a format we will set) which describe of how their work
addresses three (3) recognition domains. More details can be found on our
website https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.planrec.org_PAIR_Resources.html&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=TQkkQPZ1XeF1oF1BClUiuv5VZENLnY9SimfLtBjGK20&s=SicMc-mbz1yrvOmI9_EeU7YZnv_YVpU1P7-h9uU9IPU&e=

Also, note that we are expecting a large number of submissions. Therefore,
before review, we will be strictly screening papers for relevance to the
workshop.  Please make sure that your abstract clearly identifies how the
work relates to at least one of the topics in the CFP.
