ACII 2017 - Call for Workshops
Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction
October 23-26, 2017 San Antonio, Texas or follow us on Twitter @acii2017

Deadline for proposals: February 24!

Affective Computing aims at the study and development of systems and devices that use emotion, in particular in human computer and human robot interaction. It is an interdisciplinary field spanning computer science, psychology, and cognitive science. At the biennial gathering of the Association for the Advancement Of Affective Computing (AAAC), the Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction conference, workshops are traditionally hosted that touch upon all aspects of affective computing. Examples include, Emotions in Games, Affective Brain Computer Interfaces, and Affective Touch.

This year, we particular invite workshops with an interdisciplinary or applied character evidenced by an organization committee consisting of multiple disciplines or involvement of industry. Workshops should focus on a central question in that interdisciplinary field. Further, we encourage workshop organizers to allow for considerable time for discussion and convergence, in addition to a solid set of papers. Proceedings for workshop papers will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. Workshop submission dates follow the dates as indicated at the bottom of this call. Mandatory this year will be a short workshop report to be presented at the main conference to allow dissemination of the workshop outcomes to a wider public.
