News (2020/09/29): We have decided to have a fully online workshop, due to COVID-19. The exact date will follow the main conference and workshop chairs’ decision. We expect the exact date will be announced sometime in November, 2020. Tentative schedule for the workshop is also posted.

Recent advances in AI help improving our understanding on dynamic human crowd motion and behavior. These advances provide essential grounds for modeling and simulating human crowd under various environmental conditions such as architectural structures (e.g. buildings, stations, stadiums, museums, airports). There is a growing recent interest in identifying relationship between human (crowd) behavior and the built environmental structures, utilizing recent developments in AI and machine learning techniques as well as incorporating findings from perceptual, cognitive principles.

This inaugural IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 Workshop aims to initiate the first-of-its-kind gathering of multidisciplinary experts interested in this area. This multidisciplinary approach combines cognitive principles and many different areas of machine learning to study the relationship between human behavior and the spaces they inhabit. It will also provide a platform for discussion on collecting appropriate data and challenges in the future gatherings.

Program Schedule

The inaugural event will be scheduled as a half-day workshop. The following is a tentative schedule.

Call for Contributions

We are looking for submissions of position papers and work-in-progress extended abstracts (2 pages) on the relevant topics, including but not limited to:

How to Submit

Papers must be written in English, and no longer than 2 pages in IJCAI-PRICAI format. Only the list of references may go beyond this page limit. Optionally, you may submit supplementary materials (e.g. videos) up to 20 MB.

The reviewing process will follow the double blind policy. Position papers, forwarding looking work (work yet to be done), and summaries of recently published work are all welcome.

The official template can be downloaded from here.
