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 workshop seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds, to share in ideas and recent results. The theme of this year's workshop will be relating plan recognition to models of human cognition; we especially hope to draw invitees from the cognitive science community. It will aim to identify important research directions and to 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.


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 submit via EasyChair at:
