Call For Papers

The Association for the Advancement of Affective Computing (AAAC) invites you to join us at our tenth International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII), which will be held in Nara, Japan on October 18th – 21st, 2022.

The Conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction is the premier international forum for interdisciplinary research on the design of systems that can recognize, interpret, and simulate human emotions and related affective phenomena.

All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore (conditional to the approval by IEEE Computer Society) and indexed by EI. A selection of the best articles at ACII2021 will be invited to submit extended versions to IEEE’s Transactions on Affective Computing.

The theme of ACII 2022 is “Affective computing for mental and physical well-being”. The current Covid-19 pandemic and resulting societal changes (such as social isolation and work-from-home arrangements) have severely impacted mental and physical well-being. Thus, ACII 2022 especially welcomes submitted research that utilizes Affective Computing to address these negative consequences on mental and physical well-being brought about by the current challenging circumstances.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

** Psychology & Cognition of Affect in Designing Computational Systems **

* Design for mental and physical well-being
* Computational Models of Emotional Processes
* Issues in Psychology & Cognition of Affect in Affective Computing Systems
* Cultural Differences in Affective Design and Interaction

** Recognition and Synthesis of Human Affect from ALL Modalities **

* Modeling of Cognitive and Affective States Related to Mental and Physical Well-being
* Facial and Body Gesture Recognition, Modeling and Animation
* Affective Speech Analysis, Recognition, and Synthesis
* Recognition and Synthesis of Auditory Affect Bursts (Laughter, Cries, etc.)
* Motion Capture for Affect Recognition
* Affect Recognition from Alternative Modalities (Physiology, Brain Waves, etc.)
* Affective Text Processing and Sentiment Analysis
* Multimodal Data Fusion for Affect Recognition
* Synthesis of Multimodal Affective Behavior

** Affective Interfaces **

* Interfaces for Monitoring and Improving Mental and Physical Well-Being
* Design of Affective Loop and Affective Dialogue Systems
* Human-Centred Human-Behaviour-Adaptive Interfaces
* Interfaces for Attentive & Intelligent Environments
* Mobile, Tangible and Virtual/Augmented Multimodal Proactive Interfaces
* Distributed/Collaborative Multimodal Proactive Interfaces
* Tools and System Design Issues for Building Affective and Proactive Interfaces
* Evaluation of Affective, Behavioural, and Proactive Interfaces

** Affective, Social and Inclusive Robotics, and Virtual Agents **

* Artificial Agents for Supporting Mental and Physical Well-Being
* Emotion in Robot and Virtual Agent Cognition and Action
* Embodied Emotion
* Biologically-Inspired Architectures for Affective and Social Robotics
* Developmental and Evolutionary Models for Affective and Social Robotics
* Models of Emotion for Embodied Conversational Agents
