*Call for Special Sessions Proposals *

*8th International Conference on **Affective Computing & Intelligent

*(ACII 2019)*


*3rd-6th September, 2019*

*Cambridge, United Kingdom*

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.

The organising committee of the 2019 Affective Computing and Intelligent
Interaction (ACII) is now inviting for special session proposals.
Interested parties will need to provide sufficient evidence in support of
their proposed special session topic explaining why it deserves distinct
focus, how it relates to the theme of the conference “Affective Computing
for ALL” (focus on inclusive technology, inclusive design principles and
inclusive user interfaces which “consider the full range of human diversity
with respect to ability, language, culture, gender, age and other forms of
human difference). It should demonstrate that there is sufficient interest
to attract papers on this topic.

Once accepted, the organizers of the special session will be expected to
attract sufficient papers to make up one session, 1hr 40min, at the
conference even after a rigorous peer review of submissions. Note, if a
special session fails to receive an adequate number of accepted papers, the
special sessions will be canceled and the accepted papers will be included
in regular sessions. Also, at least one of the special session organizers
will be expected to attend the conference.

*Submission format*

Proposals must be submitted as a single PDF via email to Jean-Claude Martin
and Mohammad Soleymani.

Your proposal should contain the following items:

·      Title of the session

·      Rationale of the need for the Special Session at ACII 2019. The
rationale should stress the novelty of the topic and how it relates to the
theme of the conference: Affective Computing for ALL

·      Potential candidates for submission

·      Potential structure of session i.e., oral, posters, mix of oral and
poster, or other structure relevant for the special session

·      Short biography of the organizers

*Review Process of Special Session Submissions*

Papers will be treated as regular papers from both the perspective of the
review process and of the proceedings (e.g., length, timeline). The special
session will have its own keyword and session organizers will be asked to
nominate reviewers.

*Key Dates for Special Session Proposal*

·      Submission of Special Session proposals: November 15, 2018

·      Notification of acceptance for the Special Sessions: December 7, 2018

·      Paper Submission to the accepted Special Sessions Deadline: April
