Dear List,

Call for Participation and Workshop Papers:

MAPTRAITS'14 ó1st Intíl Audio/Visual Mapping Personality Traits Challenge and Workshop

organised in conjunction with the ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2014), Istanbul , Turkey, 12 November 2014


The Mapping Personality Traits Challenge and Workshop (MAPTRAITS) aims at comparing signal processing and machine learning methods for automatic visual, vocal and/or audio-visual analysis of personality traits and social dimensions.

There are two sub-challenges:  (1) Quantized trait recognition and (2) Continuous trait prediction. Data consist of audio-visual interaction clips that have been assessed by multiple raters along the five dimensions of the Big Five personality model, namely, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openness, and the four additional dimensions of engagement, facial attractiveness, vocal attractiveness, and likability.


Training and test data, as well as baseline results are now available for visual-only, audio-only, audio-visual modalities once the registration process is completed:

Challenge participation is optional -- other papers that are relevant to the theme of personality analysis and mapping can be submitted in the form of workshop papers.

Submission deadlines and details can be found on the MAPTRAITS'14 Challenge & Workshop website:

Best regards,

MAPTRAITS'14 Organisers
