                     Call for Papers
2nd Workshop:
     "emotion and computing  -  
            current research and future impact"

WORKSHOP at the KI 2007
Osnabrueck, 10.9.2007


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 emotion recognition, 
emotion generation and emotion modeling with special 
attention to AI specific problems and applications. 
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 as well as 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:
-Artificial Intelligence Research 
-Cognitive Science and Cognitive Robotics
-Multi-agent System Technology
-Speech Synthesis and Speech Recognition
-Dialogue Systems
-Computer Game Development
-User Modeling and Personalization
-Applications using models of emotion
-Affective Computing
Contributions are expected in the following form:

- Presentations (15-30 minutes depending on the number 
  of accepted contributions). They are documented by a 
  short research paper (4 pages).
- Demonstrations are documented by an extended abstract 
  (1 page).
- Workshop submission is electronic. Submitted papers 
  should be conform to Springer LNCS style. Papers must 
  be written in English. Papers will be published online. 
  Further publication as workshop series is in discussion 
  and depends on submitted papers.

Important Dates:

June, 30th 	¯ deadline for short research paper proposals and demo proposals
July, 14th	¯ acceptance notification 
August, 1st 	¯ deadline for camera-ready paper
