Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence (HHAI 2023)

June 26 – 30, 2023, Munich, Germany

Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence (HHAI 2023) is the second international conference focusing on the study of Artificial Intelligent systems that cooperate synergistically, proactively and purposefully with humans, amplifying instead of replacing human intelligence.

HHAI aims for AI systems that work together with humans, emphasising the need for adaptive, collaborative, responsible, interactive and human-centered intelligent systems that leverage human strengths and compensate for human weaknesses, while taking into account social, ethical and legal considerations. This field of study is driven by current developments in AI, but also requires fundamentally new approaches and solutions. In addition, we want to encourage collaborations across research domains such as AI, HCI, cognitive and social sciences, philosophy & ethics, complex systems, and others. In this second international conference, we invite scholars from these fields to submit their best original, new as well as in progress, visionary and existing work on Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence.


We invite research on different challenges in Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence. The following list of topics is illustrative, not exhaustive:

  • Human-AI interaction and collaboration
  • Adaptive human-AI co-learning and co-creation
  • Learning, reasoning and planning with humans and machines in the loop
  • User modelling and personalisation
  • Integration of learning and reasoning
  • Transparent, explainable and accountable AI
  • Fair, ethical, responsible and trustworthy AI
  • Societal awareness of AI
  • Multimodal machine perception of real world settings
  • Social signal processing
  • Representations learning for Communicative or Collaborative AI
  • Symbolic and narrative-based representations for human-centric AI
  • Role of Design and Compositionality of AI systems in Interpretable / Collaborative AI

We welcome contributions about all types of technology, from robots and conversational agents to multi-agent systems and machine learning models.

Paper types

In this conference, we wish to stimulate the exchange of novel ideas and interdisciplinary perspectives. To do this, we will accept three different types of papers:

  • Full papers present original, impactful work (12 pages excluding references)
  • Working papers present work in progress or new and visionary ideas (8 pages excluding. references)
  • Extended abstracts present existing, pre-published work (4 pages excluding references)

Accepted full papers will be published in the Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Hybrid Human-Machine Intelligence, in the Frontiers of AI series by IOS Press. Working papers and existing work can be included in these proceedings, unless the authors request the abstracts to remain unpublished.

All accepted papers will receive a minimum slot for oral presentation. Depending on the content and quality of the work, papers will be selected for long or short presentations.


This will be an in-person, single-track conference, held in Munich, Germany on June 26 – 30, 2023. The venue will be announced.

Reviewing process & Submission guidelines

Reviewing will be single anonymised, as we are welcoming existing work and references to previous work from the submitting authors.

Submissions of full and working papers should be original work and ideas without substantial overlap with pre-published papers. Extended abstracts can present previously published work.

On acceptance, at least 1 author should attend the conference. A significant contribution is expected from all authors. A justification of contributions in the paper is appreciated.

All studies involving human participants should have received human-research ethics consent from the relevant institutions and mention this in the paper.

All submissions should adhere to IOS formatting guidelines (https://www.iospress.com/book-article-instructions). Papers should be written in English.

Work should be submitted in PDF format via Easychair: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=hhai2023
