IEEE TAC Special issue 2010 : IEEE Trans. Affective Computing Special issue on Affect Based Human Behavior Understanding
Call For Papers
Computational methods for interpreting complex behavioral patterns generated when humans interact with machines or with others are receiving more interest. Emotion is an important aspect of human behavior that is more and more taken into account in these methods. Analysis of affect for understanding human behavior is a challenging problem where many issues are still open, including the joint modeling of behavioral cues taking place at different time scales, the inherent uncertainty of machine detectable evidences of human behavior, the mutual influence of people involved in interactions, the presence of long term dependencies in observations extracted from human behavior, and the important role of dynamics.
We solicit contributions to a special section on IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing that focuses on the problems of modeling and analyzing human affective behavior, with particular attention to pattern recognition approaches that involve multiple modalities and those that model the actual dynamics of behavior.
