****************   Paper submission deadline extended -  18 January 2015  **************

3rd International Workshop on Emotion Representation, Analysis and Synthesis in Continuous Time and Space (EmoSPACE’15)

organised in conjunction with the IEEE FG 2015

Building upon the success of the first EmoSPACE workshop at IEEE FG’11 and IEEE FG’13, the third workshop in the series aims to (i) focus on continuity in input, analysis and synthesis in terms of continuity in time and continuity in affective, mental and social dimensions and phenomena, and (ii) discuss the issues and the challenges pertinent in sensing, recognizing and responding to continuous human affective and social behaviour from diverse communicative cues and modalities.

Suggested workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
Cues for continuous affective, mental and social state recognition
•  facial expressions
•  head movements and gestures
•  body postures and gestures
•  audio (e.g., speech, non-linguistic vocalisations, etc.)
•  bio signals (e.g., heart, brain, thermal signals, etc.)

Automatic analysis and prediction
•  approaches for discretised and continuous prediction
•  identifying appropriate classification and prediction methods
•  introducing or identifying optimal strategies for fusion
•  techniques for modelling high inter-subject variation
•  approaches to determining duration of affective and social cues for automatic analysis

Data acquisition and annotation
•  elicitation of affective, mental and social states
•  individual variations (interpersonal and cognitive issues)
•  (multimodal) naturalistic data sets and annotations
•  (multimodal) annotation tools
•  modelling annotations from multiple raters and their reliability

•  interaction with robots, virtual agents, and games
•  mobile affective computing
•  smart environments& digital spaces (e.g., in a car, or digital artworks)
•  implicit (multimedia) tagging
•  clinical and biomedical studies (e.g., autism, depression, pain etc.)
