Call for Submissions

Special Issue of the
ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems
on ACTIVITY RECOGNITION FOR INTERACTION

Main submission deadline: August 30th, 2013

http://tiis.acm.org/special-issues.html

AIMS AND SCOPE

Automatic recognition of human activities has emerged as a key
area of research for intelligent interaction between humans,
computing systems and robots. One goal of activity recognition is
to provide information on users' behaviour and intentions that
allows computing systems to proactively assist users with their
tasks. Over the last 20 years, researchers have investigated a
large number of methods, techniques and sensors for automatic
recognition of activities and gestures. The success of activity
recognition has led to activity-aware applications and the
commercial launch of a variety of products in the entertainment
sector and wearable technology that measures and analyses human
activity.

Advances in activity recognition have opened up many new forms of
interaction most of which have barely been explored to date. This
special issue aims to help fill this gap by encouraging and
publishing "binocular articles" on interactive systems that include
activity recognition as part of a cycle of interaction between
users and computers.

The dimensions listed below indicate the range of work that is
relevant to the special issue. Each article will normally make a
significant scientific contribution along one or more of these
dimensions. In case of doubt about the relevance of your topic,
please contact the special issue associate editors.
