AffComp 2020: Call for Papers (deadline extended to 15 Dec)

Workshop date: 7th Jan 2021, Online
Paper submission deadline: 15 Dec 2020 (extended)

= Workshop Description =

The 4th Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Affective Computing (AffComp
2020) will be part of IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 ( -
International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence and the 17th
Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial Intelligence.

In recent years, interest in affective computing (AC) has led to advances
in speech recognition, natural language processing, facial expression
detection, and applying machine learning using wearables. The workshop will
focus on the convergence of methodologies that contribute to detecting
emotional and psychometric patterns based on machine learning algorithms,
wearables, Internet of Things (IoT), and databases to capture important
aspects of affective computing.

The emphasis of this workshop shall be approaches based on the extraction
of emotional and physiometric patterns from heterogeneous sources including
but not limited to wearables, spatiotemporal methods, artificial neural
networks, deep learning, and other machine learning and inference

This workshop shall help to bring together people from these different
areas and present an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share
new techniques for identifying and analyzing applications in affective
computing that integrate multiple fields and disciplines. We also propose
to coordinate with the wearables community to find opportunities for
cross-fertilization and interdisciplinary collaboration.

= Intended Audience =

The intended audience shall consist of artificial intelligence researchers
from core areas such as statistical methodologies, machine learning,
pattern recognition, probabilistic reasoning, ontologies and learning
representation, as well as transdisciplinary and multidisciplinary domains
such as data science, spatiotemporal analytics of affect, data modeling and
mining, cyber-physical systems (CPS) and hybrid systems including wearable
computing and IoT analytics, and virtual reality (VR) / augmented reality
(AR) / mixed reality systems. Benefits will thus accrue to the data science
of affective computing and to advances in CPS/IoT, VR/AR, and smart
environments. The workshop will also be of interest to researchers and
practitioners of application areas, such as: Smart environments including
homes, offices, and schools; assistive technologies, especially for
children, the elderly, and the disabled; and medical and social uses of
affect recognition.
