Call For Papers

GENEA 2023 is the fourth GENEA Workshop and an official workshop of ACM ICMI ’23, which will take place in Paris, France. Accepted paper submissions will be included in the adjunct ACM ICMI proceedings.

Generating non-verbal behaviours, such as gesticulation, facial expressions and gaze, is of great importance for natural interaction with embodied agents such as virtual agents and social robots. At present, behaviour generation is typically powered by rule-based systems, data-driven approaches, and their hybrids. For evaluation, both objective and subjective methods exist, but their application and validity are frequently a point of contention.

This workshop asks, “What will be the behaviour-generation methods of the future? And how can we evaluate these methods using meaningful objective and subjective metrics?” The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working on the generation and evaluation of non-verbal behaviours for embodied agents to discuss the future of this field. To kickstart these discussions, we invite all interested researchers to submit a paper for presentation at the workshop.

Automated synthesis of facial expressions, gestures, and gaze movements
Audio- and music-driven nonverbal behaviour synthesis
Closed-loop nonverbal behaviour generation (from perception to action)
Nonverbal behaviour synthesis in two-party and group interactions
Emotion-driven and stylistic nonverbal behaviour synthesis
New datasets related to nonverbal behaviour
Believable nonverbal behaviour synthesis using motion-capture and 4D scan data
Multi-modal nonverbal behaviour synthesis
Interactive/autonomous nonverbal behavior generation
Subjective and objective evaluation methods for nonverbal behaviour synthesis
Guidelines for nonverbal behaviours in human-agent interaction
We will accept long (8 pages) and short (4 pages) paper submissions, all in the same double-column ACM conference format as used by ICMI. Pages containing only references do not count toward the page limit for any of the paper types. Submissions should be formatted for double-blind review made in PDF format through OpenReview.

Submission site:

To encourage authors to make their work reproducible and reward the effort that this requires, we have introduced the GENEA Reproducibility Award.

We will also host an open poster session for advertising your late-breaking results and already-published work to the community. No paper submission is needed to participate in the poster session, and these posters will not be part of any proceedings (non archival). Submission guidelines for the poster session will be available on the workshop website.
