                      Call for Papers
                  "emotion and computing  -
              current research and future impact"

                         at the

         Conference on Artificial Intelligence
                        KI 2006

                    Bremen, 19.6.2006

In recent years computer science research has shown
increasing efforts in the field of software agents
which incorporate emotion. Several approaches have
been made concerning emotion recognition, emotion modeling,
generation of emotional user interfaces and dialogue
systems as well as anthropomorphic communication agents.

Motivations for emotional computing are manifold.
 From a scientific point of view, emotions play an
essential role in decision making, as well as in perception
and learning. Furthermore, emotions influence rational
thinking and therefore should be part of rational
agents as proposed by artificial intelligence research.
Another focus is on human computer interfaces which
include believable animations of interface agents.

The workshop will focus on the role of affect and
emotion in computer systems including the three
dimensions: emotion recognition, emotion generation
and emotion modeling. Both shallow and deep models of
emotion are in the focus of interest. The goal is to
provide a forum for the presentation of research, of
existing and future applications and for lively discussions
among researchers and industry. The presented papers will
discuss theories, architectures and applications which are
based upon emotional aspects of computing. We especially
encourage prototype demonstrations in order to give a
good basis for a subsequent discussion session.

Contributions are solicited from the following fields:

- Multi-agent System Technology
- Affective Computing
- Psychology and Cognitive Science
- Cognitive Robotics
- Speech Synthesis and Speech Recognition
- Dialogue Systems
- Computer Game Development
- eLearning
- Artificial Intelligence Research
- User Modeling

Contributions are expected in the following form:

- Presentations should have a duration of 15-30 minutes
   depending on the number of accepted contributions.
   They are documented by a short research paper which
   should not exceed 4 pages in total.
- Demonstrations are documented by an extended abstract
   which should not exceed 1 page.
- Workshop submission is electronic. Submitted papers
   should preferably be conform to Springer LNCS style
   (see detailsfor paper submission on the conference web page).
   Papers must be written in English. Papers will be published
   in the workshop section of the KI proceedings (and online).

Important Dates:

April, 30th - deadline for short research paper proposals
May, 8th    - deadline for demonstration proposal
May, 15th   - acceptance notification for short
               research paper and demonstration proposal
May, 26th   - deadline for camera-ready paper
