Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals

Call for Workshops and Tutorials Proposals

We invite proposals for full-day and half-day workshops and tutorials at HHAI-2023, the Second International Conference on Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence. 

The HHAI-2023 workshops and tutorials provide a platform for discussing a topic related to Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence with an audience specifically interested in that topic in an informal setting (compared to the main conference). 

We invite submissions for events that foster cross-disciplinary interaction, scientific discourse, and creative and critical reflection, rather than just being mini-conferences. We offer organizers flexibility on formats that best suit the goals of their event. We also welcome submissions from research communities that may not be prominently featured in AI events and conferences.

Types of Events

We welcome three types of contributions: traditional workshops, creative events, and tutorials. 

Traditional Workshops

Traditional workshops typically match the topics and challenges of the general call for papers to the main conference. In a traditional workshop, the organizers may consider a program involving a set of invited talks around a certain theme (with or without paper presentations).

Creative and Reflective Events

In the spirit of reflection and community-building, we invite academics from all disciplines and people representing different communities of practice (including journalism, advocacy, activism, education, art, law and policy) to contribute creative and reflective events related to HHAI. 

The format for these events is flexible. Alternative formats include but are not limited to:

  • Lightning Talks, 
  • Debates or Rump Sessions,
  • Unconference,
  • Interactive Workshop,
  • Art Exhibit or Other Artistic Intervention.

As opposed to the workshops and creative events, tutorials are intended for reasonably well-established topics. However, considering that HHAI is an emerging research topic, we particularly welcome tutorials that connect well-established topics in AI and other disciplines to HHAI topics. We encourage tutorials to be interactive to engage the audience.

Submission Guidelines

Proposals must be submitted via Easychair: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=hhai2023 

Your proposal should not exceed 8 pages (excluding references) in the IOS format, and must include the following information:

  1. Title and abstract of the workshop or the tutorial.
  2. Name, affiliation, and short bio of each organizer. 
    • We recommend at least two organizers, who are knowledgeable in the field but have complementary expertise. 
    • In addition to the main organizers, workshops can employ additional organization, e.g., a program committee for evaluating the contributions.
  3. The topics and issues on which the workshop or the tutorial will focus on.
  4. The intended workshop or tutorial duration (half-day or full-day event).
  5. A link to the prior iteration of this workshop or tutorial, if applicable. 
    • You can also discuss other closely related workshops.
  6. A brief description of the workshop or tutorial format, e.g., the mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels, and general discussion.
  7. The targeted audience size. 
  8. Special requirements, if any.
    • Include a note if you have any special requirements for your session that are not addressed elsewhere.
  9. Supporting material, if any.
    •  If you have additional materials which would support your proposal, such as a video example of the facilitation, a website, or written workbooks, you can also include that in your proposal.
Evaluation Criteria
  • Relevance: Connection to and relevance for the objectives of the HHAI conference and the objectives listed in this particular call.
  • Scientific quality: The potential of the proposal to generate stimulating discussions and useful results about scientific problems related to HHAI
  • Organization: Is the plan clear, sensible and thorough?
  • Diversity and inclusion: Thoughtfulness in the approach detailed to ensure engagement and participation of a broad audience. Diversity in backgrounds of the workshop organizers and intended presenters/contributors.
Workshop and Tutorial Proceedings

Each workshop, on its own, may consider how to archive the contributions to the workshop and document the insights generated during the workshop. If there is sufficient interest, we can archive (with an opt-out option) all HHAI 2023 workshop contributions, and summaries of workshops and tutorials as a combined CEUR Workshop Proceeding.
