Minha Lee is an Assistant Professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology at the department of Industrial Design, with a background in philosophy, digital arts, and HCI. Her research is about morally relevant interactions with technological agents like robots or chatbots. Her work explores how we can explore our moral self-identity through conversations with digital entities, e.g., via acting compassionately towards a chatbot. She has organized workshops at relevant conferences: CSCW '20–'21, IUI '21, HRI '2021, and Philosophy of Human-Technology Relations (PHTR) '20.

Jaisie Sin is a graduate student at the Technologies for Aging Gracefully Lab and the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto. Her research focuses on the inclusive design of conversational interfaces for underrepresented users like older adults. She has been a co-organizer of the CUI conference series and related workshops at CHI '19–'21, IUI '20–'21, and CSCW ’20.

Guy Laban is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow and a PhD candidate at the school of Psychology and Neuroscience of the University of Glasgow. Guy is interested with the neuropsychological mechanisms that underlay human–robot interactions, and the affect of these interactions. Guy's research is aimed at exploring how people disclose their emotions and needs to social robots, and how these, in turn, can reduce stress and burden.

Leigh Clark is a Lecturer in Human-Computer Interaction at the Computational Foundry in Swansea University. His research examines the effects of voice and language design on speech interface interactions and how linguistic theories can be implemented and redefined in this context. He is co-founder of the international Conversational User Interfaces (CUI) conference series.

Martin Porcheron is a Lecturer in the Computational Foundry at Swansea University. His work examines the use of new technologies such as conversational interfaces in multi-party settings like pubs and the home. He has recently co-organised workshops at CHI '18–'21 and CSCW '16, '17 and '20 on topics including collocated interaction with technologies and conversational user interfaces. He is a member of the CUI conference series steering committee.

Benjamin R. Cowan is an Associate Professor at University College Dublin’s School of Information & Communication Studies. His research lies at the juncture between psychology, HCI and computer science in investigating how theoretical perspectives in human communication can be applied to understand phenomena in speech based human-machine communication. He has published widely on user centered issues in conversational and speech interface interaction, is co-founder of the international Conversational User Interfaces (CUI) conference series and has been involved in a number of workshops on this topic at CHI and Mobile HCI.
