CFP: Workshop on emotion and computing at KI 2010

http://www.emotion-and-computing.de

Call for Papers
--------------------------------------------------------------
5th Workshop:
    "emotion and computing  -  
           current research and future impact"

WORKSHOP at the KI 2010
Karlsruhe, September 21-24, 2010


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


The workshop series `emotion and computing - current research 
and future impact' has been providing a platform for discussion 
of emotion related topics of computer science and AI since 2006. 
In recent years computer science research has shown increasing
efforts in the field of software agents which incorporate emotion. 
Several approaches have been made concerning emotion recognition, 
emotion modelling, generation of emotional user interfaces and 
dialogue systems as well as anthropomorphic communication agents.

Motivations for emotional computing are manifold. From a 
scientific point of view, emotions play an essential role in 
decision making, as well as in perception and learning.
Furthermore, emotions influence rational thinking and therefore 
should be part of rational agents as proposed by artificial 
intelligence research. Another focus is on human computer 
interfaces which include believable animations of interface 
agents. From a user perspective, emotional interfaces can 
significantly increase motivation and engagement which is of 
high relevance to the games and e-learning industry.
This workshop intends to discuss the scientific methods 
considering their benefit for current and future applications. 
Especially when regarding the subject of emotion
recognition, this also includes ethical aspects.

Contributions are solicited from the following fields:

-Artificial Intelligence Research 
-Cognitive Sciences and Cognitive Robotics
-Multi-agent System Technology
-Speech Synthesis and Speech Recognition
-Dialogue Systems
-Modeling Uncertainty and Vagueness
-Computer Game Development
-User Modeling and Personalization
-Applications using models of emotion
-Affective Computing

Contributions are expected in the following form:

- Presentations should have a duration of 15-20 minutes. 
 They are documented by a short research paper which 
 should cover 4-8 pages in total
- Demonstrations are documented by an extended abstract 
 which should not exceed 1 page in total
- Workshop submission is electronic. Submitted papers 
 should conform Springer LNCS style and must 
 be written in English. Papers will be published on the 
 workshop website. Further publication is in discussion 
 and depends on submitted papers.

Important Dates:

Workshop paper submission deadline:          June 27, 2010 
Notification of workshop paper acceptance:   July  9, 2010
Workshop camera ready copy submission:       July 30, 2010
