ACII 2021 - Final Call for Tutorial Proposals
28 Sep - 1 Oct 2021, Virtual

The Conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (
ACII) is the premier international forum interdisciplinary research on the
design of systems that can recognize, interpret, and simulate human
emotions and related affective phenomena. It is an interdisciplinary field
spanning computer science, psychology, and cognitive science.
Affective Computing aims at the study and development of systems and
devices that use emotion.  The theme of the 2021 edition of the conference
is “Ethical Affective Computing” considering ethical uses, fairness and
bias in emotional AI.

We encourage tutorial proposals which address topics of affective computing
and intelligent interaction in introductory or advanced levels to
complement the conference’s program. In general, tutorials may introduce an
uprising issue to the related research discussed at ACII 2021, or reflect
an overview of an important, but already established topic, both presented
in an illustrative fashion. For this, we expect that the tutors focus on
the state-of-the-art or the main ideas of the proposed topic rather than
primary on the presenters’ own research interests. Tutorials oriented
toward more applied aspects of affective computing and intelligent
interaction are also welcome, such as the presentation of  tools and
methodologies common for the processing of affective data.

The tutorials can be organised as either half-day (preferred) or full-day
events and will take place at the same venue as the main conference. The
proposals will be evaluated based on the impact, quality, interdisciplinary
character, presentation format as well as the theme and relevance to the
Proposal Submission Instructions
