Call for Papers: 7th Int. Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding
to be held in conjunction with ACM Multimedia, 16 October 2016, Amsterdam

"Focus Theme: Behavior Analysis and Multimedia for Children"

Short Description:
The Seventh International Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding, organized as a satellite to ACM Multimedia'16 will gather researchers dealing with the problem of modeling human behavior under its multiple facets (display of complex social and relational behaviors, recognition of individual or joint actions, personalization, etc.), with the focus topic of "Behavior Analysis and Multimedia for Children".

The minimum age of computer usage is steadily getting lower, yet there are many issues open in children's use of computers and multimedia. This workshop will solicit human behavior analysis solutions that clearly advance the field, and also to meet challenges of designing solutions with children in mind, which brings its own issues and challenges. The covered topics may span items from each of the following topic dimensions, as well as target a focus theme challenge:

***Human Behavior Analysis Systems***
Action and activity recognition, Affect analysis, Social signal processing, Face analysis, Gestures and haptic interaction, Voice and speech analysis, Learning and adaptation, Gaze, attention and saliency
***Theory and Methodology of Human Interactive Behavior***
Theoretical frameworks of behavior analysis, Data collection, annotation, and benchmarking, User studies and human factors, Interaction design
***Interactive Multimedia Applications***
Education, Creativity, Visual and digital arts, Games and entertainment, Healthcare and well-being, Robotics
***Selected Focus Theme Challenges: "Behavior Analysis and Multimedia for Children"***
Age estimation, Detection of abusive and aggressive behaviors, cyberbullying, Inappropriate content detection, Privacy and ethics of multimedia access for children, Databases collected from children, Monitoring children during social interactions, Investigations into children's interaction with multimedia content
The HBU is organized as a full-day, single track event with invited talks, and oral presentations.

Submissions must represent original material. Papers are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has been neither submitted to, nor published in, another journal or conference. All manuscripts will undergo a rigorous review process by the members of the program committee. Submissions are single-blind, LNCS style.
HBU proceedings are published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series, and indexed in ACM DL.

You can submit a paper now at:

Important Dates:
July 11, 2016: Submission of full papers (23:59pm PST)
July 25, 2016: Notification of acceptance
August 16, 2016: Camera-ready
