Call For Papers


Second International Workshop on Social Signal Processing
Florence (Italy), October 29th, 2010
In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2010


The Ability to understand and manage social signals of a person
we are communicating with is the core of social intelligence.
Social Intelligence is a facet of human intelligence that has
been argued to be indispensable and perhaps the most important
for success in life. A widely accepted prediction is that next
generation computing needs to include the essence of social
intelligence – the ability to recognize and generate social
signals and social behaviours – in order to become more effective
and more efficient. Due to this vision of the future, automated
analysis and synthesis of social signals and social behaviours,
including social interactions (like turn taking and backchanelling),
social attitude (like alliance), and social relations/ roles, have
attracted increasing attention.

Machine analysis of human social interactions and social signals is
progressing rapidly with new or pending applications in HCI, psychology,
biomedicine, politics, and entertainment technology, among other fields.
With these advances come new conceptual and methodological challenges.
The workshop aims at presenting cutting-edge research and new challenges
in automatic analysis and synthesis of human social interactions and
signalling in an interdisciplinary forum of computer and behavioral

We seek to attract contributions representing the state-of-the-art
efforts to develop algorithms that can process naturally occurring
human social communication, decode communicative intent, and generate
the appropriate socially-adept responses.

Relevant topics for the workshop include but are by no means limited to:

- Social psychology and social signals processing
- Facial behaviour analysis and synthesis in social interactions
- Expressive speech analysis and synthesis in social interactions
- Human gesture and action recognition and synthesis in social interactions
- Multimodal human behavior analysis and synthesis in social interactions
- Perceptual, multimodal, and socially-aware user interfaces
- Socially-adept Embodied Conversational Agents
- Databases for training and testing
- Socially-aware computing and applications
