Dear all,

We invite researchers and practitioners across disciplines to join us in our 2nd MEEC WS ( at CHI 2021, where the goal is to collaboratively sketch and define effective and ethical means of elicitation, sensing, and annotation of human emotions.


To train machines to sensibly detect and recognize human emotions, we need valid emotion ground truths. A fundamental challenge here is the momentary emotion elicitation and capture (MEEC) from individuals continuously and in real-time, without adversely affecting user experience nor breaching ethical standards. In this half-day virtual CHI 2021 workshop, the goals are:

(1) have participant talks and a keynote presentation by Prof. Mohammad Soleymani 
(2) collaboratively ideate elicitation, sensing, and annotation techniques 
(3) create mappings of when to apply an elicitation method

We seek contributions across disciplines that explore how emotions can be naturally elicited and captured in the moment. Topics include:

• multi-modal (e.g., film, music) and multi-sensory (e.g., smell, taste, thermal) elicitation
• emotion elicitation across domains (e.g., automotive, healthcare)
• elicitation and immersiveness (e.g., AR/VR)
• elicitation over time (e.g., mood)
• ethical considerations

• emotion models (dimensional, discrete)
• annotation modalities (e.g., speech, gestures) and tools (e.g., questionnaires, ESMs)
• devices (e.g., mobile, wearable) and sensors (e.g., RGB / thermal cameras, EEG, eye tracking)
• attention considerations (e.g., interruptions)
• ethical issues in tracking and detection


We invite position papers, posters, and demos (2-9 pages, including references) that describe/showcase emotion elicitation and/or capture methods. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by 2 peers, and selected on their potential to spark discussion. 

Submissions should be prepared according to the ACM Master Article template (single column) (see CHI Publication Formats page: and submitted in PDF through Easychair ( Accepted submissions will be made available on the workshop website. At least one author must register for the workshop and one day of the conference, with (TBD) special rates for remote attendance.


• Deadline: 21 February, 2021
• Notification: 7 March, 2021
• Workshop date: 9 May, 2021, CET 14:00-18:15 (UTC+01:00) / JST 20:00-01:15 (next day) / EST 08:00-12:15
