Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII) 2021
28 Sep – 1 Oct 2021, Nara, Japan

*First Call for Workshop Proposals*
The organizing committee of Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction
(ACII) 2021 is now inviting proposals for workshops. The biennial
conference is the flagship conference for research in Affective Computing,
covering topics related to the study of intelligent systems that read,
express, or otherwise use emotion.
Workshops at ACII allow a group of scientists an opportunity to get
together to network and discuss a specific topic in detail. Examples of
past workshops include: Emotions in Games, Affective Brain-Computer
Interfaces, Affective Touch, Group Emotions, Affective Computing for
Affective Disorders, etc. We want to encourage workshop proposals that draw
together interdisciplinary perspectives on topics in affective computing.
Proposals are also encouraged that make a connection to the theme of the
conference on “Ethical Affective Computing”, and consider issues around the
ethical use of affective computing technologies.
Workshops should focus on a central question or topic, and will be held the
day before the conference. Workshop organizers will be responsible for
soliciting and reviewing papers, and putting together an exciting schedule.
We also encourage workshop organizers to allow for time for networking and
discussion. Workshop organizers are also expected to present a short
summary of the workshop during the main conference to allow dissemination
of the workshop outcomes to the wider community.
