Humour is pervasive in human social relationships and one of the most common ways to produce a positive affect in others. In this special session, we aim to explore challenges in designing, developing and evaluating humorous interactions, as well as benefits and downsides of using humour in interactive tasks with artificial entities with special focus on natural language dialogue.
