VASTI 2022

International Workshop on “Voice Assistant Systems in Team Interactions ‒ Implications, Best Practice, Applications, and Future Perspectives”

The workshop is encouraging an interdisciplinary exchange of researchers focusing on multimodal interactions in the wide range of group research aspects, linguistic and acoustic perspectives, as well as dialogue management in relation to speech based systems, e.g. voice assistants. Regarding the mentioned research communities, the interdisciplinary collaboration between these research communities is currently rather loose. Therefore, the workshop aims on bridging the three research communities based on shared interests and provides a platform for detailed discussions.

Topics of interest include:

Voice Assistant Technology

Multi-Party Interaction

Communication in Teams

Multimodal Interactions in Teams

Linguistics in Voice Assistance

Human Speech Perception

Automatic Team Analyses

Linguistics in Teams

Multimodal Perception

Important Dates:

  • Submission deadline: July 28, 2022, 23:59 AoE
  • Notification: August 12, 2020
  • Camera-ready: August 19, 2022
  • Workshop: November 07, 2022 (not fixed yet)

What to submit?

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers (4 + 1 reference page) and short papers (4 + 1 reference page) in ACM conference format. All submissions should be anonymous and according to the specifications of the ICMI 2022. The reviewing will be double-blind, so submissions should be anonymous: do not include the authors' names, affiliations or any clearly identifiable information in the paper. It is appropriate to cite past work of the authors if these citations are treated like any other (e.g., "Smith [5] approached this problem by....") - omit references only if it would be obviously identifying the authors.

How to submit?

The submission and review process is handled using EasyChair. Please submit your paper using the link and following the instructions.
