Call For Papers

HBU 2011: Second Int. Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding 2011

in conjunction with International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence
16 November 2011, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

New technology and algorithms empower computers with ways to
analyze human behavior. Human behavior understanding not only
improves the existing applications with more ways of interaction and
smarter decision and response logic, it also opens up new venues and
application areas. This workshop will gather researchers dealing
with the problem of analysing and modeling human behavior under its
multiple facets (expression of activities and emotions, display of
complex social and relational behaviors, performance of individual
or joint actions, etc.), with particular attention to systems that
aim to induce behavioral change in their users. Concrete examples
are intelligent tutoring systems that rely on analysis to provide
feedback (e.g. sign language tutoring based on gesture analysis),
healthcare systems that improve the patients’ physical or cognitive
well-being, interactive games that serve beneficial purposes (e.g.
improving fitness), technologies that promote positive behavioral
change (e.g. environmental sustainability and better life-styles),
to name a few. The Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence has a
clear contiguity with the purposes of the workshop, and we expect it
to be an excellent meeting ground for theory- and application-related
aspects of the subject.

Paper Submission:
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. The
submissions will be 10 pages, Lecture Notes in Computer Science
style. The proceedings of HBU 2010 were published as a book in
Springer Verlag's LNCS Series. This year, a (post-conference)
Springer CCIS volume will collect the full papers.
Extended versions will be invited to a journal special issue.
