Call for Papers:
3rd Int. Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding (HBU'2012)
to be held in conjunction with IROS'2012, 7 October, Algarve, Portugal

Short Description:
The Third Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding, organized as a
satellite to IROS'2012, will gather researchers dealing with the
problem of computational modeling and understanding of human behavior
under its multiple facets (expression of emotions, display of
relational attitudes, performance of individual or joint actions,
imitation, etc.), with particular attention to implications in
robotics, including additional resource and robustness constraints of
robotic platforms, social aspects of human-robot interaction, and
developmental approaches to robotics.

The HBU Workshops, previously organized as satellite to ICPR and AMI
Conferences, have a unique aspect of fostering cross-pollination of
different disciplines, bringing together researchers of robotics, HCI,
artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, interaction design,
ambient intelligence, psychology. The diversity of human behavior, the
richness of multi-modal data that arises from its analysis, and the
multitude of applications that demand rapid progress in this area
ensure that the HBU Workshops provide a timely and relevant discussion
and dissemination platform.

The covered topics include, among others:
    Autonomous mental development
    Behavioral biometrics
    Benchmarking studies on novel databases
    Facial, gestural and voice-based affect recognition for robotics
    Human motion analysis and action recognition
    Human-robot interaction
    Imitation learning (learning from demonstration)
    Mathematical description and integration of contextual information
    New feature selection and extraction methods
    Novel sensors (e.g. RGB-D cameras)
    Pattern discovery
    Robots and smart environments
    Sign-language recognition
    Social behavior analysis & modeling, multimodal behavior patterns
    Temporal patterns

The HBU 2012 Workshop is supported by EUCogIII and INRIA-PAL.

Submissions must represent original material. Papers are accepted for
review with the understanding that the same work has been neither
submitted to, nor published in, another journal or conference. All
manuscripts will undergo a rigorous review process by the members of
the program committee. The submissions will be up to 12 pages, Lecture
Notes in Computer Science style. The proceedings of HBU 2010 and HBU
2011 were published in Springer Verlag's LNCS Series. LNCS approval is
pending for HBU 2012. Submission and reviewing are handled via the
EasyChair system.

You can submit a paper now at:

Important Dates:
10 July 2012 (Extended): Submission deadline for full papers
25 July 2012: Notification of acceptance
7 August 2012: Camera-ready paper
7 October 2012: Full day Workshop at IROS 2012
