ACII 2021 - Final Call for Special Session Proposals
28 Sep - 1 Oct 2021, Nara, Japan

The organising committee of the 2021 Affective Computing and Intelligent
Interaction (ACII) is now inviting for special session proposals.
Interested parties will need to provide sufficient evidence in support of
their proposed special session topic explaining why it deserves distinct
focus, how it relates to the theme of the conference “Ethical Affective
Computing” (technologies and applications including but not limited to
mental health monitoring/diagnosis, lie detection and social/assistive
robots which consider the full range of human diversity with respect to
ability, language, culture, gender, age and other forms of human
difference). It should demonstrate that there is sufficient interest to
attract papers on this topic.

Once accepted, the organizers of the special session will be expected to
attract sufficient papers to make up one session, 1hr 40min, at the
conference even after a rigorous peer review of submissions. Note, if a
special session fails to receive an adequate number of accepted papers, the
special sessions will be canceled and the accepted papers will be included
in regular sessions. Also, at least one of the special session organizers
will be expected to attend the conference.
