               CHI2003 Workshop on
    SUBTLE EXPRESSIVITY FOR CHARACTERS AND ROBOTS
    =============================================
       http://www.bartneck.de/workshop/chi2003


ABSTRACT:
=========
Humans, both consciously and unconsciously, use subtle expressions to
communicate their emotions and intentions through variations of the
gaze direction, pitch of speech and gesture speed. They form their own
class of communication acts. Embodied characters, including robots,
need to use subtle expressions to become believable communication
partners.

The design and evaluation of subtle expressivity are challenges for
designers and researchers of embodied characters. How do the subtle
variations in expression influence the interaction? What types of
subtle expressions are most important for the design of interactive
media? How can the effect of the expressions be reliably measured?

The workshop aims to:
---------------------
* Provide a forum to discuss emerging issues in the design and
evaluation of subtle expressivities and its applications.

* Discuss the role of cognitive science and psychology in the use of
subtle expressions in the design of interactive media.


We plan to cover the following topics:
--------------------------------------
* Concepts, theories or guidelines for design of subtle expressions

* Implementation methods for of subtle expressions

* Measuring methods for the effects of subtle expressions.


Format:
=======
The workshop will consist of a daylong highly interactive format that
will encourage open dialogue and sharing wisdom. We will aim to
achieve a balance of viewpoints and backgrounds in the selection of
participants.
