CALL FOR PAPERS: "Emotion and computing - current research and future impact", October 4/5, 2011, GERMANY

5th Workshop: "emotion and computing - current research and future impact" - at the KI 2011, Berlin

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: June27, 2011
Notification of workshop paper acceptance: July11, 2011 
Workshop camera ready copy submission: August 1st, 2011
