Cognitive Models and Emotions detection for Ambient Intelligence (COMEDAI
                   CALL FOR PAPERS*


*Special Session of the 9th International Symposium on Intelligent
Distributed Computing <>
7th-9th October 2015, Guimarães, Portugal



The detection and recognition of human emotions and social signals is a key
issue in the development of socially intelligent systems. This
interdisciplinary field has been lastly provided some applications
including marketing, autism therapy for children and at-home medical care
and assistance. Given the tendency of the worldwide society, the step
further would be to design Ambient Intelligence systems able to take care
of elderly and disabled people. That is, the combination of Ambient
Intelligence (AmI), a paradigm emerging from Artificial Intelligence (AI),
that responds to the actions of human beings and objects within an
environment, adapting it to their needs; with emotions computing, the study
and development of systems aimed at detecting, modelling and recognizing
human emotions and showing empathy with people.

In the Special Session on COMEDAI we will intend to gather together people
from different fields such as Ambient Intelligence, Knowledge Modelling,
and Emotion Computing, for a multi-disciplinary discussion forum.
Researchers are welcome to present their research, theoretical and/or
practical, and/or their study of its application to this new field. The
discussion will be focused on the presentation of concrete systems,
implementation issues, development challenges, conclusions achieved and
relevant results.


With the aim to achieve these goals, submissions of significant, original
and previously unpublished work, are invited in all areas of Ambient
Intelligence cognitive-emotional detection and modelling.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Emotion detection
   - Behavioural analysis
   - Cognitive models
   - Knowledge integration and fusion from distributed sources
   - Distributed fusion of sensor data streams
   - Ambient Intelligence
   - Intelligent environments


All accepted papers will be included in the Symposium Proceedings, which
will be published by Springer as part of the series Studies in
Computational Intelligence.

Papers must have at most 10 pages length and must be formatted according to
Springer format for Proceedings and Other Multi-author Volumes (Latex only)
available at:

Submissions and reviews are automatically handled by Easychair. Please
submit your paper at: and
choose the COMDEDAI 2015 option in the special session option.
