Workshop Description

Plan recognition, activity recognition, and intent recognition all involve making inferences about other actors from observations of their behavior, i.e., their interaction with the environment and with each other. The observed actors may be software agents, robots, or humans. This synergistic area of research combines and unifies techniques from user modeling, machine vision, intelligent user interfaces, human/computer interaction, autonomous and multi-agent systems, natural language understanding, and machine learning. It plays a crucial role in a wide variety of applications including: This wide-spread diversity of applications and disciplines, while producing a wealth of ideas and results, has unfortunately contributed to fragmentation in the field, as researchers publish relevant results in a wide spectrum of journals and conferences. This workshop seeks bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds, to share in ideas and recent results. It will aim to identify important research directions and identify opportunities for synthesis and unification.


Contributions are sought in the following areas of research: Due to the diversity of disciplines engaging in this area, related contributions in other fields, are also welcome.


The workshop will consist of a series of research presentations, organized into topical sessions (topics to be decided based on submissions). An interdisciplinary panel is planned, seeking to highlight research contributions and challenges unifying and differentiating the different sub-areas.


We welcome submissions describing either relevant work or proposals for discussion topics that will be of interest to the workshop. Submissions are accepted in PDF format only, using the AAAI formatting guidelines. Submissions must be no longer than eight pages in length, including references and figures. Please e-mail submissions to
