CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction, 2-5 September 2013, Geneva, SWITZERLAND

http://www.acii2013.org

The fifth biannual Humaine Association Conference on Affective
Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII 2013) will be held in
Geneva, Switzerland on September 2-5, 2013.

The Conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent
Interaction is the premier international forum for research on
affective and multimodal human-machine interaction and systems.

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 ACII conference will be organized by the Computer Vision and
Multimedia Laboratory and the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences from
the University of Geneva. Geneva has one of Europe's most beautiful
sceneries, situated between a lake and mountains and is a highly
international city where English speaking is common. It has been a
cultural center for many centuries and home to many creative spirits
in the fields of science and art.

In addition to regular papers (which are due 2 April 2013), ACII 2013
will also feature a number of Workshops.

The ACII 2013 Workshops aim to facilitate lively discussions,
comparison of methods, synthesis of results on particular topics of
interest to Affective Computing. The workshops will be held on the
first day of the main conference, Monday, 2 September 2013.

We invite workshop proposals on any current or emerging topic of
relevance for the fields of Affective Computing and Intelligent
Interaction. Workshop organizers are strongly encouraged to include
presentations that describe the relevance of their work for other
disciplines within Affective Computing ("bridge"
presentations). Evaluation of workshop proposals will be based on the
quality of the proposal, the level of details, the inter-disciplinary
character of the workshop, the workshop theme and its relevance to
ACII 2013. Two-page extended abstracts based on the workshop proposal
will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Workshop papers will
be included in the conference proceedings. Inclusion is dependent on
paper quality as well as whether the workshop organisers want to do
so.
