CF Participation: International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA'07)


7th International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA'07)
Plus GALA - Gathering of Life-like Agents
17th - 19th September 2007

Paris, France

deadline for early registration: July 20th -



Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVAs) are autonomous, graphically embodied agents in an interactive, 2D or 3D virtual environment. They are able to interact intelligently with the environment, other IVAs, and especially with human users. The conference is an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners in computer graphics, animation, computer games, virtual environments, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, cognitive modeling, human-computer interaction and artificial life. Since the first IVA back in 1999 firm lines of research have been established but there is much that the graphics and AI communities can learn from each other.

IVA'07 will be a multidisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry with an interest in the design, implementation, and evaluation of IVAs and IVA applications.

IVA07 will also host GALA ? The Gathering of Life-like Agents
