Call For Papers

Generating nonverbal behaviour, such as gesticulation and facial expressions, is of great importance for natural interaction with embodied agents such as virtual agents and social robots. At present, behaviour generation is typically powered by rule-based systems, data-driven approaches, and their hybrids. For evaluation, both objective and subjective methods exist, but their application and validity are frequently a point of contention in peer review.

This workshop asks “What will be the behaviour-generation methods of the future? And how can we evaluate these as meaningfully and usefully as possible?” The aim is to bring together researchers working on the generation and evaluation of nonverbal behaviour for embodied agents to discuss the future of these fields. To kickstart these discussions, we invite all interested researchers to submit a paper related to their work in the area for presentation at the workshop.

Attached to this workshop is a challenge to assess and advance the state of the art in co-speech gesture generation, for which a separate call for participation will be released.

Paper topics include (but are not limited to) the following

* Co-speech gesture generation
* Nonverbal feedback
* Interactive nonverbal behaviour generation
* Evaluation methods for generated nonverbal behaviour
* Objective evaluation metrics for nonverbal behaviour
* Guidelines for nonverbal behaviours in human-agent interaction

Author instructions
Please format your workshop submissions for double-blind review according to the IVA conference template. Submissions should represent original, unpublished work.

Papers are limited to 5 pages, not counting references and full-page figures. The maximum file size is 20 MB. Submissions should be made in PDF format through OpenReview:
