Call for Workshops and Tutorials Proposals
We invite proposals for two-day, full-day and half-day workshops at HHAI 2024, the Third International Conference on Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence. We also invite tutorials to run alongside the workshops.
The workshops and tutorials will form part of the first edition of the HHAI Summer School.
The HHAI 2024 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 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 one or more invited talks combined with presentations of accepted papers around a certain theme.
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,
- Open space or world cafe sessions,
- 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.
