14-16 September 2009, Ninth International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA'09), Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Date: 14-16 September 2009
Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Deadline: 17 April 2009

Intelligent virtual agents (IVAs) are interactive characters that exhibit human-like qualities and communicate with humans or each other using natural human modalities such as speech and gesture. They are capable of real-time perception, cognition and action that allow them to participate in a dynamic social environment.

IVA'09 is an interdisciplinary annual conference and the main forum for presenting research on modeling, developing and evaluating intelligent virtual agents with a focus on communicative abilities and social behavior. In addition to presentations on theoretical issues, the conference encourages the showcasing of working applications. Researchers from the fields of human-human and human-robot interaction are also welcome to share work which has a bearing on intelligent virtual agents. IVA'09 particularly encourages submissions on this year's special topic of games.

IVA'09 will be co-located in Amsterdam with the complementary Affective Computing & Intelligent Interaction International Conference (ACII'09, http://www.acii2009.nl/), held 10-12 September 2009.

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers to submit their papers for presentation. Submission deadline is 17 April, 2009.
