ACII 2017 - First Call for Tutorial Proposals
October 23-26, 2017, San Antonio, Texas, US
http://www.acii2017.org/

The Association for the Advancement of Affective Computing (AAAC) is organising the 7th
biannual International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII) in
San Antonio, Texas, on October 23-26, 2017.

The ACII Conference Series is an excellent international platform for interdisciplinary research
on and discussions of topics related to affective phenomena. The interdisciplinary character
of the ACII offers an optimal environment to cover the various aspects of affective computing.
Interdisciplinarity is an important prerequisite in order to obtain well-founded research on
designing systems which are able to detect, recognise, interpret, simulate, express, and adapt
to emotions and affective states of humans. The theme of the 2017 edition of the conference
is "Affective Computing in Action", thereby, focusing on applications of affective computing.

The conference is attended by both researchers with a long-term and established track-record
and early-stage researchers in the fields of affective computing, psychology, artificial
intelligence, or intelligent interaction. Following the nature of ACII participants we encourage
tutorial proposals which addresses 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
2017, 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. 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.
