Dear List,

For those of you working in the field of Affective Computing, we would like to shortly announce the following call for papers:

EmoSPACE 2011

1st International Workshop on 
Emotion Synthesis, rePresentation, and 
Analysis in Continuous spacE 

In conjunction with the IEEE FG 2011

Call for Papers 
___________________________________________

Human affective behaviour is multimodal, continuous and complex. Despite major advances within the affective computing research field, modelling, analysing, interpreting and responding to human affective behaviour still remains as a challenge for automated systems as emotions are complex constructs, with fuzzy boundaries and with substantial individual variations in expression and experience. Therefore, affective and behavioural computing researchers have recently invested increased effort in exploring how to best model, analyse and interpret the subtlety, complexity and continuity of affective behaviour in terms of latent dimensions and appraisals, rather than in terms of a small number of discrete emotion categories.

The key aim of this workshop is to present cutting-edge research and new challenges in automatic, dimensional and continuous analysis and synthesis of human emotional behaviour in an interdisciplinary forum of affective and behavioural scientists. More specifically, the workshop aims (i) to bring forth existing efforts and major accomplishments in modelling, analysis and synthesis of emotional expressions in dimensional and continuous spaces, (ii) while encouraging the design of novel applications in context as diverse as human-computer and human-robot interaction, clinical and biomedical studies, learning and driving environments, and entertainment technology, and (iii) to focus on open issues and new challenges in the field. The workshop will also bring together two Keynote Speakers who are leading experts in modelling and analysis of naturalistic emotions in dimensional and continuous spaces. 

Suggested workshop topics include, but are by no means limited to:

Modalities and cues for dimensional emotion recognition
	facial expressions
	head movements and gestures
	body postures and gestures
	audio (e.g., speech, non-linguistic vocalisations, etc.)
	bio signals (e.g., heart, brain, thermal signals, etc.)
Automatic analysis and prediction
	approaches for discretised and continuous prediction of emotions
	identifying appropriate classification and prediction methods
	introducing or identifying optimal strategies for fusion
	techniques for modelling high inter-subject variation
	approaches to determining duration of emotions for automatic analysis
Data acquisition and annotation
	elicitation of emotions
	individual variations (interpersonal and cognitive issues)
	(multimodal) naturalistic data sets annotated in dimensional spaces
	(multimodal) annotation tools for dimensional emotions
	modelling annotations from multiple raters and their reliability
Applications
	interaction with robots, virtual agents, and games (including tutoring)
	single and multi-user smart environments (e.g., in a car)
	implicit (multimedia) tagging
	clinical and biomedical studies (e.g., autism, depression, pain etc.)
