Special Issue of the
ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems
on BEHAVIOR UNDERSTANDING FOR ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT

Main submission deadline: March 26th, 2014

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

AIMS AND SCOPE

Techniques for understanding human behavior have become an
important technology for interactive intelligent systems. New
challenges arise when the behavior being analyzed involves
engagement with arts and/or entertainment.

The subject of the behavior understanding may be either a
creator, such as a visual artist or a performer; or a person who
engages with a (possibly interactive) work of art or
entertainment. A system can support these types of interaction in
novel and interesting ways through real-time behavior analysis.

The same types of behavior can also be analyzed off-line, to
support research in areas like interaction design and social
psychology.

The creativity that is involved makes it less likely that the
behavior conforms to known patterns and norms, and it makes
evaluation less straightforward.

This special issue aims to encourage and publish research about
the challenges and opportunities associated with human behavior
understanding in arts and entertainment. In accordance with the
scope of ACM TiiS, each submission should include a discussion of
the implications of the research for some type of interactive
system. The specific topics of submitted manuscripts can differ
along the dimensions listed below.
