** Call for Papers **

Affective Agents Workshop (AAW)

Workshop homepage:

To be held in conjunction with IVA 2014 in Boston, MA, USA, 27-29 August

Conference homepage:

** Scope **

Many researchers in the virtual agents and social robotics communities are
exploring the integration of affective computing into their systems.
However, the majority of this research focuses on only one aspect of
affective computing, such as the detection, modeling, or expression of
emotion. The goal of this workshop is to create collaborations between the
experts in each of these areas to share their latest findings so as to
shape the picture of how all of these systems can be integrated together to
create an Affective Agent that senses, models, expresses and responds to a
user's affective state in real time.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


   Agents and robots that respond to a user’s affective state

   Real time sensing of affect

   Expressing emotions in embodied agents

   Multimodal affective detection and expression

   Evaluation of affective systems

   Computational models of emotion, empathy and emotional contagion

   Perception-action affective loops in agents and robots

   Affective interactions in real-world environments

   Applications for affective interactive games, robots and virtual agents

   Techniques for handling multimodal and noisy data in real world scenarios

** Important Dates **

June 6, 2014:    Paper submission deadline

June 27, 2014:  Notification of paper acceptance

July 11, 2014:   Camera ready versions due

August 26, 2014:  Workshop date (half-day)

August 27-29, 2014:  Main conference
