- 2ND CALL FOR PAPERS -

Workshop FROM SENSORY TO SOCIAL PRESENCE: TECHNIQUES AND ARCHITECTURES 
FOR INTELLIGENT INTERFACES
http://www.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/~marcl/KI2005/ki2005ws.shtml

September 11, Koblenz, Germany

In conjunction with the 28th German Conference on Artificial 
Intelligence (KI2005) <http://ki2005.uni-koblenz.de/>


TOPIC

Advances in AI technology such as natural language processing, dialogue 
modeling, multimodal interfaces, and embodied agents increasingly enable 
the development of intelligent interfaces that combine various modes of 
communication to achieve the interaction suited best to the situational 
context and the specific task. For such a communication to be successful 
and truly bidirectional, a firm perceptual coupling between the 
communicating partners is one prerequisite. Nowadays, the user can 
sometimes employ a number of modalities to communicate her intentions to 
the system, e.g., using direct manipulation, textual, spoken, or 
multimodal input. Systems are also beginning to exploit additional 
sensory channels to perceive as completely as possible the presence of 
the user, e.g., using techniques of emotion recognition. In turn, the 
system is present to the user by generating responses that shall 
indicate the state of the system and the task, often conveyed in ways 
symmetrical to the input modalities (textual, verbal, graphical, 
haptical, etc.), and often subject to considerable interpretation by the 
user. One way to maximize and straighten this perceptual coupling can be 
to literally embed the user in an environment suitably equipped for 
two-way perception purposes, e.g., in immersive VR environments or smart 
rooms. Beyond mutual sensory presence, the coupling between the user and 
a technical system can even be extended to levels of social presence. 
That is, systems can recognize and account for the user's mental states, 
like beliefs, goals, intentions, emotional states, etc., and they can 
create the impression of having such cognitive capabilities themselves.

This workshop wishes to address the questions related to the 
development, application and evaluation of models and methods that help 
to achieve such close, symmetrical couplings on various levels of 
presence, with a focus on techniques and architectures for realizing and 
integrating these methods in interactive systems. Topics of interest 
include, but are not limited to:

- Models and techniques for processing multimodal user input (speech, 
gesture, movement, facial expression, haptics, etc.)
- Models and techniques for generating multimodal system output
- Symmetry and synergy between input processing and output generation
- Levels and symmetry of presence in human-computer interaction
- Models and techniques for creating and maintaining social presence, 
benefits and dangers of socially present systems
- Models and techniques for emotion and personality in interactive systems
- Evaluation of interactive systems, e.g., user impression of the 
systems' capabilities and limitations
- Architectures for complex interactive systems


WORKSHOP FORMAT

The workshop will be full-day and will be built around presentations of 
submitted papers. Presentations are 20 minutes, followed by a 10 minute 
discussion period. Also, there will be a longer discussion period at the 
end of the day.


PUBLICATION

The workshop proceedings will be published as Technical Report of the 
University of Koblenz-Landau.  The organizers plan to publish extended 
versions of selected papers as a subsequent, peer-reviewed publication, 
if possible as special issue of a pertinent journal.


DATES

June 10: Deadline for paper submissions
July 18: Authors' notification of acceptance
August 12: Deadline for camera ready copies for the workshop proceedings
September 11 : Workshop


PAPER FORMAT AND SUBMISSIONS

Papers should be no longer than 8 pages and should be prepared according
to the formatting guidelines found at
http://www.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/~marcl/KI2005/submission.shtml

Send submissions as a single pdf file by email to: 
skopp_AT_techfak.uni-bielefeld.de

The name of the file should be the last name of the first author.
Papers will be selected based on relevance to the workshop, quality of 
the work, and clarity of presentation.
