We invite you to submit a paper to the IEEE Pervasive Computing special
issue on "Human Behavior Analysis for Inducing Behavior Change". This
special issue is organized as a follow up of the 2nd Int. Workshop on
Human Behavior Understanding (,
but it is not restricted to extended workshop paper submissions. The
submission deadline is quite near. For specific questions, you can

CFP: Special Issue on Human Behavior Analysis for Inducing Behavior 

Submission Deadline: 1 October 2012 (extended, hard deadline)
Works in Progress Submission Deadline: 15 December 2012
Notification of Final Acceptance: 20 January 2013
Publication: July–September 2013

IEEE Pervasive Computing invites submissions on human behavior
analysis for inducing behavior change.

New technology and algorithms are empowering computers with several
ways to analyze human behavior, allowing the systems to attribute
meaning to users' attitudes, preferences, personality, and social
relationships. This has the potential to redefine the relationship
between the computer and the interacting human, moving the computer
from a passive observer to a socially active participant that can
influence the attitudes and behaviors of people in their everyday
natural environments. This special issue aims to see where this change
is taking us, as well as how computers can be used to change human
behavior to promote individual, organizational, and societal values.

The aim of this special issue is to explore the problems of modeling
and analyzing human behavior under its multiple facets (expression of
emotions, display of complex social and relational behaviors, etc.).
Particular attention will be placed on systems that aim to induce
behavioral change in their users. The guest editors also seek
contributions that leverage social media in the selection,
improvement, and delivery of behavior-inducing messages. They invite
original and high-quality submissions addressing all aspects of this
field, as long as the connection to the focus topic is clear and
emphasized. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the

     Systems that observe and promote health
     Technologies that promote sustainable behavior
     Human-computer interaction
     Interaction design
     Interactive and immersive games
     Reality mining
     Interactive marketing
     Human-computer dialogue
     Persuasive systems design
     Art and creative applications
     Educational technologies
     Action and gesture recognition
     Recognition of daily living activities and lifestyles
     Spatiotemporal models
     Behavior semantics
     Social behavior analysis
     Social signal processing
     Affect and emotion recognition
     Corpora for behavioral analysis

Submission Information

Submissions should be 4,000 to 6,000 words long and should follow the
magazine's guidelines on style and presentation. All submissions will
be anonymously reviewed in accordance with normal practice for
scientific publications.

In addition to full-length submissions, IEEE Pervasive Computing also
invites work-in-progress submissions of 250 words or less (submit to
[log in to unmask]). These will not be peer-reviewed but will be
reviewed by the Department Editor and, if accepted, edited by the
staff into a feature for the issue. The deadline for work-in-progress
submissions is 15 December 2012.
