Humor is a universal and ubiquitous facet of human communication, but is among the hardest to process in artificial intelligence environments.

The 3rd Panel on Humor and Artificial Intelligence at ISHS 2020 solicits abstracts on the computational representation, detection, classification, interpretation, and generation of any and all forms of verbal or non-verbal humor.

Application areas include, but are not limited to:

 * human–computer interaction

* computer-mediated communication

* intelligent writing assistants

* conversational agents

* machine and computer-assisted translation

* digital humanities

* natural language processing

* computer vision

Abstracts of up to 250 words should be submitted on the ISHS 2020 website at <Submissions> by March 1, 2020.

Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to give a presentation (tentatively 30 minutes long: a 20-minute talk + 10 minutes for questions) at the conference.  The conveners are making arrangements for publication of selected full papers; details to be announced in a subsequent call.
