Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII) 2021
Final Call for Demos
28 Sep - 1 Oct 2021, Virtual

*Call for Demos*
Affective Computing aims at the study and development of systems and
devices that use emotion, in particular in human computer and human robot
interaction. It is an interdisciplinary field spanning computer science,
psychology, and cognitive science. The biennial gathering of the
Association for the Advancement Of Affective Computing’s (AAAC) 2021
Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction Conference (ACII 2021) is
the perfect opportunity to showcase recent technologies, products, and
prototypes and to engage with an international community of experts from
various corners of social science, computer science, and data science.
Demo presenters
will benefit from heightened exposure for their work, as well as feedback
from many of the most renowned scientists in the field. Demos are also an
excellent opportunity to find beta testers and other collaborators.
Two-page extended abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings
for all accepted demos.

*Important Dates*

   - Paper submission deadline: *24 June, 2021*
   - Notification of acceptance: 5 July, 2021
   - Camera ready paper: 12 July, 2021

*Submission Instructions*
*Theme for 2021*
We strongly encourage the submission of demos that align with the ACII 2021
theme of *Ethical Affective Computing*. Thus, special consideration will be
provided for demos that focus on the consideration of ethical uses,
fairness, and bias in emotional AI. We welcome submissions from academic
researchers, companies, and startups in domains ranging from entertainment
and marketing to education and healthcare.

Submissions of demonstrations of research prototypes and innovative
commercial products related to applications of affective computing and
intelligent interaction are welcome. Since ACII 2021 is going to be a fully
virtual conference, demonstrations will be accepted in three formats: live
demos, video recordings and slideshows.

*Evaluation Criteria*
Each demo paper will be reviewed and selected based on its scientific
contribution, originality and innovation, social impact, potential for
widespread use, and relevance to topics of ACII. Demo papers should include
detailed technical explanations of the methods used. Similar demos will be
grouped together in order to maximize the visibility of the presenters and
their technologies.

*What to Submit*
The submission materials should be combined into a single document
including the following:

   - A two-page (+ one additional page for references) extended abstract to
   be published in the ACII 2021 proceedings in the conference paper format
   (LaTeX/Word templates). The abstract should include (1) a brief background
   introduction and description of the system, (2) a summary of the technical
   contributions of the system, and (3) results of a formal evaluation or an
   experiment to be conducted during the demo (if applicable).
   - A URL link to a video recording or screenshots demonstrating how the
   system works.

The demo papers submission process will be handled through the EasyChair
system ( Please note that
the demo presenters must be registered for the conference.

Please forward any questions about demo submissions to the Demo Chairs:
Shaun Canavan ([log in to unmask]) and Kalin Stefanov (
