This workshop will be held at IVA 2017 in Stockholm on August, 27th. The aim is to bring together researchers from a variety of fields interested in the study of conversational interruptions in multimodal human-human, human-agent (both virtual and robotic) or agent-agent interactions. Our aim is to address current challenges in this area (as well as identifying new ones) and to set a research agenda to make IVAs capable of believably react and adapt to unexpected situations such as conversational interruptions.
Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):
In this one day workshop, authors of accepted papers will present their work during the morning. In the afternoon we will break out in small groups and participate in an interactive demo session offered by participants. The workshop will terminate with a final discussion panel.
We invite two types of submissions:
Submissions should be sent by email to angelo (dot) cafaro (at) isir (dot) upmc (dot) fr.

IVA 2017 is the 17th meeting of an interdisciplinary annual conference
and the main leading scientific forum for presenting research on modeling,
developing and evaluating intelligent virtual agents (IVAs) with a focus
on communicative abilities and social behavior. IVAs are interactive digital
characters that exhibit human-like qualities and can communicate with humans
and each other using natural human modalities like facial expressions,
speech and gesture. They are capable of real-time perception, cognition,
emotion and action that allow them to participate in dynamic social environments.
In addition to presentations on theoretical issues, the conference encourages
the showcasing of working applications.
