ACII 2011 First Call for Papers
Apologies for multiple postings

Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII 2011) is the
fourth international conference and
premier forum for state of the art in research on affective and
multimodal intelligent systems. This year we are encouraging
papers on a range of topics from the interdisciplinary arena
encompassing Computer Science, Engineering, Virtual Agents,
Psychology, and the Affective, Cognitive, Learning, and Social
Sciences. Authors of a selected subset of accepted papers
will be invited to publish expanded versions in IEEE Transactions
on Affective Computing.

The 2011 conference will be held at the FedEx Institute of
Technology at the University of Memphis, which is a large
urban campus at the center of the city. Home of the Blues and
the birth place of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Memphis is renowned for its rich
musical history and Southern Hospitality.

Topics of Interest (but not limited to)
• Recognition & Synthesis of Human Affect (face, speech, body,
physiology, context, text, and neuroscience)
• Affect-Sensitive Applications (learning environments, virtual
reality, entertainment, smart environments, health care)
• Methodological Issues in Affective Computing (affect annotation,
reliability, validity, psychometric tools)
• Affective & Social Robotics (affective robotics, embodied emotions,
biologically-inspired affective architectures)
• Affective & Behavioral Interfaces (adaptive, human-centered,
collaborative, and proactive interfaces)
• Affective Agents (emotion, personality, affective decision making,
and architectures of Embodied Conversational Agents)
• Relevant Insights from Psychology (emotion theories, computational
models of emotion, individual differences, affect-sensitive, cognitive
modeling, cultural, and ethical issues)
• Affective Databases, Evaluation, & Annotation Tools
(spontaneous/induced/acted emotions, protocols, coding schemes)

Submission Instructions
• The papers should feature original work (i.e., not
submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference
or journal while in review).
• The proceedings of ACII 2011 will be published by Springer. Papers
should not exceed 10 pages and should be formatted
according to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines.
• Papers must be submitted as PDF through the
EasyChair conference system, which can be accessed
through the main conference web site.

April 01, 2011 Regular papers due
April 15, 2011 Abstracts for demos due
June 01, 2011 Acceptance notification
