Call For Papers


AffCon-2021 is the fourth Affective Content Analysis workshop @ AAAI. The workshop series (i) builds upon the state of the art in neural and AI
methods for modeling affect in interpersonal interactions and behaviors, and (ii) brings a confluence of research viewpoints representing several disciplines. This year, collaboration takes on an extra meaning in a physically distanced world, where everyone relies more heavily on computer-mediated cooperation. Understanding the dynamics of affect in collaborative content is more topical. The theme for AffCon@AAAI-2021 is ‘Affect in Collaborative Creation’, relevant for increasingly decentralized workplaces, asynchronous collaborations, and computer-mediated communication. The general topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Focus areas:
• Affect in Collaborative Content
• Affect in Communication co-creation
• Affective Reactions in Co-creation and collaboration
• Affectively responsive interfaces
• Deep learning-based models for affect modeling in content (image, audio, and video)
• Mirroring affect
• Psycho--demographic Profiling
• Affect--based Text Generation
• Multi-modal Affect
• Stylometrics, Typographics, and Psycho-linguistics
• Cognitive and psychological computational models of creativity
• Affective needs and Firm-Consumer co-creation Behavior
• Computational models for Consumer Behavior theories of innovation
• Affective Lexica for Online Marketing Communication
• Affective human-agent, human-computer, and human-robot interaction

Submit to our workshop at AAAI! It's our 4th year and we always have the coolest speakers.
Confirmed Speakers: Prof. Rosalind Picard, Prof. Page Moreau, Prof. Cristian Danescu-Niculescu-Mizil, Prof. Devi Parikh

CALL FOR SHARED TASK SUBMISSIONS: We introduce the CLAff-GoTeam dataset this year, which examines the role of affect in inter- and intra-team trust. It builds on the Diplomacy dataset from Vlad Niculae, Srijan Kumar, Jordan Boyd-Graber, and Cristian Danescu-Niculescu- Mizil, with additional annotations, and derived outcomes related to collaborations.
