AI-HCI: 2nd International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in HCI

The conference aims to bring together academics, practitioners and students to exchange results from academic and industrial research, as well as industrial experiences, on the use of Artificial Intelligence technologies to enhance Human-Computer Interaction. In particular, the following areas of research are relevant: (i) Ethical and trustworthy AI to provide a fair and unbiased experience; (ii) Evolution of Human-Centered AI including models, processes and modalities; (iii) Processes, methods and technical frameworks in the area of generative UX / UI design, automatic creation and adaptation of user interfaces;  (iv) Consumer and industrial application domains including healthcare, finance, -market places, manufacturing and robots, (semi-) autonomous transportation, personal and industrial dashboards, personalized education and learning, and security.

The conference is targeted at individuals and organizations who have performed research or developed industrial applications in the area of AI in HCI. The conference is also targeted at individuals and organizations which want to learn from those results, so they can (re-)use them in research or industrial applications.
