International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent
Interactions (ACII'19)
Special session on "*Affect in Animals*"

3rd-6th September, 2019
Cambridge, United Kingdom

Automatic detection of affect and emotion recognition in animals is a novel
field that has gained popularity in recent years. The scientific study of
animal expression of emotions started with the work of Charles Darwin
(Darwin 1872). Analysing facial expressions of animals, gait analysis and
modelling, and animal-human interaction are growing in significance
recently as technology becomes an effective element in animal welfare.
Studies discussing emotions in different animals and Interaction between
human and animals have been sparsely presented in different conferences.
There is increasing interest in this field for domesticated pets (such as
cats and dogs), for livestock (such as cattle and sheep) and for wild
animals. Our aim in this special session is to combine publications in the
area of animal affect and interaction under one theme.

We invite submissions on topics including, but not limited to:

   - Computer vision for analysis of animals
   - Databases for animal behaviour analysis
   - Analysing animal behaviour
   - Animal gait analysis
   - Animal facial expressions analysis
   - Affect recognition in animals
   - Cross-species models of emotion
   - Modelling human-animal interaction
   - Modelling animal-machine interaction
   - Interfaces and tools for animal welfare


   - Paper submission deadline to the Special Sessions: *April 12, 2019 *
