*ACII 2021*: 
*Call for Tutorial Proposals*: 

The Conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction 
(ACII) is the premier international forum interdisciplinary research on 
the design of systems that can recognize, interpret, and simulate human 
emotions and related affective phenomena. It is an interdisciplinary 
field spanning computer science, psychology, and cognitive science.
Affective Computing aims at the study and development of systems and 
devices that use emotion.  The theme of the 2021 edition of the 
conference is “Ethical Affective Computing” considering ethical uses, 
fairness and bias in emotional AI.

We encourage tutorial proposals which address topics of affective 
computing and intelligent interaction in introductory or advanced levels 
to complement the conference’s program. In general, tutorials may 
introduce an uprising issue to the related research discussed at ACII 
2021, or reflect an overview of an important, but already established 
topic, both presented in an illustrative fashion. For this, we expect 
that the tutors focus on the state-of-the-art or the main ideas of the 
proposed topic rather than primary on the presenters’ own research 
interests. Tutorials oriented toward more applied aspects of affective 
computing, intelligent interaction, and multimodal interaction are also 
welcome, such as the presentation of  tools and methodologies common for 
the processing of affective data.

The tutorials can be organised as either half-day (preferred) or 
full-day events and will take place at the same venue as the main 
conference. The proposals will be evaluated based on the impact, 
quality, interdisciplinary character, presentation format as well as the 
theme and relevance to the conference.
