Computational Models of Cultural Behavior for Human-Agent Interaction

The seminar was the first international meeting on computational models of culture. The gathering of a multi-disciplinary team of experts with a background in intelligent virtual agents, human-computer interaction and cultural theories provided us with a lot of inspirations for future research projects. We did not only identify relevant topics for a roadmap on computational models of culture, but also worked out a number of intriguing applications for cultural agents.
In order to exploit the momentum and enthusiasm generated by the seminar, we discussed some ideas for community building. We plan to organize a follow-up Dagstuhl seminar in about two or three years. However, some participants felt they would not like to wait for such a long time and spontaneously decided to have an additional workshop on Cultural Models for Intelligent Virtual Agents at the Fourteenth International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA 2014) in Boston this year. Furthermore, we discussed the edition of a book and/or a special issue. In addition, we talked about possibilities to share and distribute corpora to support comparative studies of culture-specific behaviors.
