Call for proposals to host IVA2009


Call for proposals to host IVA2009
-----------------------------------
Since its conception as a small ECAI workshop in 1998, the  International Conference Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA) has become  a central event for researchers in synthetic characters, intelligent  virtual agents, embodied conversational agnets, and virtual animals.  Since 2005 IVA has become an annual event, and in 2008 is taking  place in Tokyo.

This call asks for proposals to host the event in 2009. In keeping  with past events the aim is to hold the event in September 2009, with  an  attendance of
around 100.  Given IVA2008 is running in Asia, a proposal located  within Europe would be favoured.

An important goal is to facilitate the participation of students and  young researchers, so keeping the cost of attendance low is also an  important criterion.

Details of recent events can be seen at:
http://bermudas.ls.fi.upm.es/~iva01/ (2001)
http://www.sigmedia.org/iva03/ (2003)
http://iva2006.ict.usc.edu/ (2006)
http://iva07.ntua.gr/ (2007)
http://research.nii.ac.jp/~iva2008/ (2008)

If you think you'd like to host IVA, please submit a brief (3 pages)  proposal including:

1. Who you are (the organising team) and any previous experience you  have of running workshops in IVA-related and other fields.

2. A description of the proposed venue, including meeting facilities,  accommodation and travel access.

3. An outline budget (likely costs and expenditure).

4. Exact dates in September 2007 for the meeting.

The evaluation criteria will include:
(1) cost effectiveness;
(2) professionalism of proposal and track record of the proposers;
(3) accessibility of the location(i.e. access to airports, etc);
(4) venue attractiveness (e.g. quality of facilities and support of   "togetherness").

Please send the proposal to: ruth@macs.hw.ac.uk, gratch@ict.usc.edu,  p.l.olivier@ncl.ac.uk, skopp@techfak.uni-bielefeld.de,  pelachaud@iut.univ-paris8.fr
***by Jun 15th 2008***
The result will be announced at IVA2008.
