Call for Papers


Workshop in conjunction with FG 2013, Shanghai, China, April 22-26, 2013

Natural behavior includes deceptive and non-cooperative behavior. There are many applications where detection and generation of such behavior is useful. In particular when we have smart environments inhabited by tangibles, social robots and virtual humans. Some domains for research on detecting and generating deceptive and non-cooperative nonverbal behavior are the following:

(1)    Understanding and processing face-to-face communication and multi-party conversations between humans or between humans and artificial conversational partners.

(2)    Understanding human behavior in natural (sensor-equipped) physical environments where different people have different, maybe contrasting, goals they want to achieve.

(3)    Educational and training environments that aim at behavioral changes, for example, in health and life style, or for training social interaction skills or the detection of deceptive behavior.

(4)    Play, games and sports. To read the opponent, make a faint, to divert attention, and to disguise intentions are essential issues in sports.

All these domains will receive growing attention from the computer vision and multimodal interaction research community in the next years. Deception is natural and sometimes obligatory in these domains. Deception is also about hiding the truth. Communication strategies aimed at the latter purpose are typically based on non-cooperative behaviour, i.e. more or less explicit attempts to prevent others from achieving their goals in communication.

This workshop is about detection and generation of deceptive and non-cooperative behavior. The focus is on detection, and using computer vision is the starting point. But it is well known that there are no uni-modal cues from which deception can be established reliably. For that reason there is particular interest in computer vision integrated in a multimodal approach. That is, approaches where there is also access to information obtained from (neuro-) physiological sensors, nonverbal speech and linguistic information, and - one step further - approaches that include reasoning that uses available domain and context knowledge. Due to the complexity of the field we are also interested in model-based attempts to generate deceptive and non-cooperative behavior.

Suggested workshop topics include, but are by no means limited to:
-              Detecting non-verbal cues that indicate deceptive behavior
-              Multi-modal approaches to deceptive behavior detection
-              Norms of verbal and, in particular, nonverbal interaction
-              Facial deception in humans, virtual humans and social robots
-              Corpus collection of deceptive behavior
-              Corpora and evaluation protocols for deception research
-              Human performance versus computer performance
-              Applications in interactive entertainment, games and sports
-              Non-cooperative and abusive interactions
-              Theories of deception
-              Designing believable deceptive agents
-              Social and ethical issues of deception detection and generation
