          Affect and Emotion in HCI

You are cordially invited to submit articles for an upcoming book on 
affect and emotion in HCI, which Springer will publish in the LNCS 
Hot Topics series.

It's now ten years since the first publication of Rosalind Picard's 
book on Affective Computing. Since then, research in affect and 
emotion in HCI has evolved from an eccentric hobby of some visionary 
scientists to an accepted discipline within HCI research.
The field has developed a body of work that requires some 
aggregation and reflection, and is poised to make some potentially 
dramatic advances. The aim of this book is to provide a summary of 
the field and then present the latest research results and 
technology developments, and of the visions, hopes, and concerns 
related to this novel technology.

Scope of the book
To give a balanced report with as wide a spectrum as possible, we 
solicit contributions from the following fields:

1) Theoretical foundations
     Models and representations of emotions, from an HCI perspective;
     Ethical and legal issues.

2) Emotion and affect as input
     Sensor systems, multimodal sensor networks, and sensor fusion;
     Data analysis.

3) Emotion and affect as output
     Desktop applications and agents;
     Web-based services and applications;
     Presence and smart environments;
     Mobile applications;

4) User experience studies and usability.

5) Community
    Reports on Networks of Excellence,
    National and international research programmes;
    Standardisation efforts.

The listed topics are non-exclusive, please feel free to send in 
contributions not listed here, or contact the editors for input on 
your suggestions.
Please note that this book will focus on emotion/affect aspects in 
HCI only, so contributions on general aspects of emotion theory, 
sensor systems or user interface design are discouraged.

Important dates
June   25 2007  submission of articles
August 07 2007  notification of acceptance
Sept   09 2007  camera-ready papers due
Oct    31 2007  online publication
December  2007  publication of book

Note that the book will be published online by 31st October 2007.

Electronic submissions will be accepted in either MS Word or latex 
format. Please provide a pdf version for the reviews. Articles must 
neither have been previously published, nor be under consideration 
for publication or presentation elsewhere.
All contributions will undergo a blind peer-review process. We 
therefore ask you to submit an anonymized version of your work.

We expect contributions to categories 1 through 4 to be 8–12 pages 
in length; category 5, community reports, 2–3 pages.

Initial submissions and the final camera-ready contributions must 
comply to Springer LNCS format. For templates and further 
instructions on formatting please go to:
