ACII 2013 - 3rd CALL FOR PAPERS: Regular, DC and Demo's

-------------------------------------------------------


The 5th International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction


http://www.acii2013.org 

The 5th International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction is organized in cooperation with the AAAI and Technically Co-Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society. Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society and will be indexed in IEEEXplore.


This ACII edition will emphasize the humanistic side of affective computing by promoting publications at the cross-road between engineering and human sciences (including biological, social and cultural aspects of human life).


The conference will address, but is not limited to, the following topics:


.    Computational and psychological models of emotion;

.    Affect in arts, entertainment and multimedia (literature, texts, music, movies, games, interactive art);

.    Bodily manifestations of affect (facial expressions, body movements, behavior, physiology, multimodal studies);

.    Databases for emotion processing: development and issues;

.    Affective interfaces and applications (games, learning, dialogue systems.);

.    Ecological and continuous emotion assessment;

.    Affect in social interactions.



SUBMISSIONS

-----------


Regular Papers:

The papers should feature original work (i.e., not submitted to another conference or journal while in review by ACII). Details about the submission instructions, length, and format are on the ACII 2013 website. Authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to publish extended versions in one of the two journals that have already agreed to publish such contributions.


Doctoral Consortium:

The Doctoral Consortium (DC) serves as forum for PhD students to share ideas about the theories behind affective computing, its development, and its application. Submissions should describe PhD research that is at a stage where feedback from the international community might be of value. DC Submissions will be reviewed, and accepted contributions are published in the conference proceedings. The Professor Fiorella de Rosis award will be presented to the best DC paper. Details about the Doctoral Consortium and submission are communicated in a separate CFP and are on the ACII 2013 website.


Interactive Events (Demos):

The ACII 2013 Interactive Events (Demos) Session is the ideal forum for researchers and practitioners to showcase recent advances in affective computing. The session will feature live demonstration of both mature systems and prototypes, and the presenters will have the opportunity to discuss their systems with the broader international scientific community and the public at large. Two-page Interactive Event extended abstracts will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Details about the Interactive Events (Demos) and proposal submission are communicated in a separate CFP and are on the ACII 2013 website.


Workshops:

See website for more information on accepted workshops (
http://www.acii2013.org/index.php/workshops/).

Note

Authors of accepted work (papers, extended abstract, demos) have to register in order to have their work published and they have to attend the conference to present their work.
