Full Title: AAAI Fall Symposium on Artificial Intelligence of Humor 
Short Title: AAAI FSS 2012 AIH 

Date: 02-Nov-2012 - 04-Nov-2012
Location: Arlington, VA, USA 
Contact Person: Julia Taylor
Meeting Email: jtaylor1 at purdue.edu
Web Site: http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~taylo108/AAAI-FSS-2012 

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Computational Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Semantics 

Call Deadline: 25-May-2012 

Meeting Description:

Human ability to communicate is incomplete without the use of humor.  If a computational system is ever to approximate human communication ability or act as a competent partner in a conversation with a human, humor must be accounted for. The general goal of the proposed Symposium is to advance the state of the art in the direction of developing an AI system capable of understanding the mechanism of a joke at a level sufficient for providing a punch line to a human generated setup (even if unintentional) and conversely, for computer reacting competently to a human generated punch line that follows a setup, generated by either participant.  The effort is multidisciplinary in nature, and the participants from all of the contributing disciplines, viz., computational semantics, knowledge representation, computational psychology, AI theory, humanoid robotics, human-computer interface, human factors, to name just a few, are invited to participate. 

Call for Papers:


The topics include (but are not limited to):

- Humor detection and generation
- Semantic representation of jokes
- Reasoning within jokes
- Priming and saliency in jokes
- Humor preferences
- Humor ontology
- Modeling humor competence
- Modeling humor performance
- Humor in humanoid robotics
- Social computing with humor
- Detecting humor trends
- Computational humor for education

Format of Symposium: 

The Symposium will include a few invited papers, submitted research papers, and encourage the participants to suggest panels, round table discussions, mini-symposia, special sessions, etc. There will be a clear focus on discussion: in fact, to the extent possible, we will encourage the electronic circulation of invited and accepted presentations prior to the Symposium, so that most of the time allotted to each paper be spent on its discussion. 

Submission Requirements (Deadline: May 25, 2012):

We invite regular research paper submissions (around 8 pp.), short research papers (around 4 pp.), proposals for panels, round-table discussions, special sections, listing the rationale and committed participants (1 p.). Poster presentation, with or without a paper, outlining early-stage research, are also encouraged, especially from students.
