== Deadlines ==

Notification Deadline: April 20th 2014
Camera-ready deadline: April 27th 2014
Workshop: June 25th 2014

== Call for Papers ==

Personalized TV/media experiences are becoming mainstream. Recommender
systems and other personalization technology are frequently included in
television sets and second screen applications.

Current systems lack one major ability: to be empathic, to take appropriate
actions based on intentions, emotions or mood of persons in front of the TV.

This workshop has two major goals:

1. Bring together researchers and practitioners that work in the domain of
affective computing and social-aware multimedia. We solicit contributions
from different viewpoints including interaction and sensing technologies,
TV production and distribution, psychology, sociology,

2. Discuss potential contributing technologies as well as (evaluation of)
application concepts and services, and identify challenges, opportunities,
threats and strengths of these technologies in specific scenarios. These
can include, but are not limited to: TV peripherals that can detect
intentions or emotions, interaction techniques or social-aware TV
applications (that trigger empathic experiences), empathic recommender
systems or new program formats.

Participants are selected using a position statement and (reference to) CVs
of potential participants. The former can be under the form of a position
paper (2 pages in the TVX format) or an alternative format, such as a
presentation (including video). Each submission should be focused and
contain reflection.

Contributions will be selected by the organizers and experts in the field
based on relevance, originality, complementarity and expected benefits to
the workshop discussions.

At least one author of accepted position statements should attend the
workshop and all participants must register for the TVX conference.
