SESSION THEME

To support humans in demanding circumstances it is often required that an intelligent system application has some form of human-awareness. This means that the system has a form of intelligence that enables it to analyze and tune itself to the human's cognitive and affective states and processes, such as attention, level of stress, or exhaustion. To design such intelligent applications in the first place the system needs knowledge of the relevant human processes, and possesses methods to use this knowledge to become human-aware: to estimate and analyze the human's states and processes. Furthermore, based on such human-awareness the system is able to tune its actions and interactions with the human. In this track we are looking for research papers that explore building blocks or full applications for such intelligent systems. All kinds of aspects of cognitive and affective human processes in all areas of life and/or work may be relevant. For example, the papers can address the analysis and modeling of such human processes, or models, architecture, or interfaces to support human cognitive and/or affective processes. Hereby, the (intended) application system does not necessarily need to incorporate an explicit model of human processes, but can also be based on heuristics developed by using formalized models of human functioning.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
* cognitive agent models
* user modeling
* human machine interaction
* coping with affective phenomena, such as negative emotions and moods
* contagion within teams
* shared mental models: shared between human and software agents
* awareness of forms of social interaction
* models for persuasion & motivation
* mutual understanding in cooperation in teams (where teams can consist of humans, of robots/agents, or both)
* the influence of values and norms on human and team functioning

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Authors are invited to electronically submit their paper, written in English, of up to 10 single spaced pages, presenting the results of original research or innovative practical applications relevant for the special session.

Shorter works, up to 6 pages, to be presented in 10 minutes, may be submitted as SHORT PAPERS representing work in progress or suggesting possible research directions.

Submitted papers should in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) format and can be submitted via EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?iid=19503 ) or via email (mhoogen@cs.vu.nl).

Accepted papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings of the IEA/AIE 2011 conference, published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.
