CALL FOR PAPERS: 5th International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction, Sep 2-5, 2013. Geneva, SWITZERLAND - DEADLINE EXTENDED

http://www.acii2013.org

 
The 5th International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction is organized 
in cooperation with the AAAI and Technically Co-Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society. Proceedings
will be published by IEEE Computer Society and will be indexed in IEEEXplore.
 
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 conference will address, but is not limited to, the following topics:
 
.    Computational and psychological models of emotion;
.    Affect in arts, entertainment and multimedia (literature, texts, music, movies, games, interactive art);
.    Bodily manifestations of affect (facial expressions, body movements, behavior, physiology, multimodal studies);
.    Databases for emotion processing: development and issues;
.    Affective interfaces and applications (games, learning, dialogue systems.);
.    Ecological and continuous emotion assessment;
.    Affect in social interactions.
