ACII 2015 – First Call for Tutorial Proposals

September 21-24, 2015, Xi'an, PR China

The Association for the Advancement of Affective Computing (AAAC) is 
organising the 6th biannual International Conference on Affective 
Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII 2015) in Xi'an, PR China, on 
September 21-24, 2015.

The ACII Conference Series is an excellent international platform for 
interdisciplinary research on and discussions of topics related to 
affective phenomena. Especially, the interdisciplinary character of the 
ACII offers an optimal environment to cover the various aspects of 
affective computing. This is important to obtain well-founded research 
on designing systems which are able to detect, recognise, interpret, and 
simulate emotions and affective states of humans. The current edition of 
ACII emphasises biological underpinnings of affective computing.
Besides the variety of the discussed topics at ACII 2015, also the 
conference itself is attended by a wide range of researchers: those with 
a long-term track-record in affective computing or intelligent 
interaction as well as by early-stage researchers in such topics. 
Therefore, this issue should be reflected in the program of the 2015th ACII.

We encourage proposal for tutorials which addresses topics of affective 
computing and intelligent interaction in introductory or advanced style 
to compliment the conference's program. In general, tutorials may 
introduce an uprising issue to the related research discussed at ACII 
2015, or reflect an overview of an important, but already established 
topic, both presented in an illustrative fashion. For this, we expect 
that the tutors present the state-of-the-art or the main ideas of the 
proposed topic rather than primary the presenters' own research interests.

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 ACII 2015.

Proposal Submission Instructions

Tutorial proposals should not exceed 4 pages and have to be emailed to 
Ronald Böck [[log in to unmask]] and Chung-Hsien Wu

the subject line.

All proposals should be prepared in PDF providing the following information:
- Tutorial Title
