Call For Papers

The fifth biannual Humaine Association Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII 2013) will be held in Geneva, Switzerland on September 2-5, 2013.

The Conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction is the premier international forum for research on affective and multimodal human-machine interaction and systems.

This ACII edition will emphasize the humanistic side of affective computing by promoting publications at the cross-road between engineering and human sciences (including biological, social and cultural aspects of human life).

The ACII conference will be organized by the Computer Vision and Multimedia Laboratory and the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences from the University of Geneva. Geneva has one of Europe's most beautiful sceneries, situated between a lake and mountains and is a highly international city where English speaking is common. It has been a cultural center for many centuries and home to many creative spirits in the fields of science and art.

The conference will address, but is not limited to, the following topics:
. Computational and psychological models of emotion;
. Affect in arts, entertainment and multimedia (literature, texts, music, movies, games, interactive art);
. Bodily manifestations of affect (facial expressions, body movements, behavior, physiology, multimodal studies);
. Databases for emotion processing, development and issues;
. Affective interfaces and applications (games, learning, dialogue systems.);
. Ecological and continuous emotion assessment;
. Affect in social interactions.

Submission Instructions

Regular Papers:
The papers should feature original work (i.e., not submitted to another conference or journal while in review by ACII). ACII 2013 proceedings will be published by a major publisher. Previous proceedings appeared in IEEE Xplore (2009) and in the Springer Lecture Notes series (2011). Details about the submission instructions, length, and format will appear on the ACII 2013 website soon. Authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to publish expanded versions in one or two journals. Two journals have already agreed to publish such subsets.

Doctoral Consortium:
The Doctoral Consortium (DC) serves as forum for PhD students to share ideas about the theories behind affective computing, its development, and its application. Submissions should describe PhD research that is at a stage where feedback from the international community might be of value. DC Submissions will be reviewed, and accepted contributions are published in the conference proceedings. The Prof Fiorella de Rosis award will be presented to the best DC paper. Details about the Doctoral Consortium and submission are communicated in a separate CFP and will appear on the ACII 2013 website soon.

Interactive Events (Demos):
The ACII 2013 Interactive Events (Demos) Session is the ideal forum for researchers and practitioners to showcase recent advances in affective computing. The session will feature live demonstration of both mature systems and prototypes, and the presenters will have the opportunity to discuss their systems with the broader international scientific community and the public at large. Two-page Interactive Event extended abstracts will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Details about the Interactive Events (Demos) and proposal submission are communicated in a separate CFP and will appear on the ACII 2013 website soon.

Optional Public Event:
Currently we are investigating the possibility to also showcase work in affective computing as part of a major public exhibition event. We actively seak ideas for such material. Details about submitting proposals for this public event can be found in a separate CFP and will appear on the ACII 2013 website soon.

Workshops at ACII aim to facilitate lively discussions, comparison of methods, and synthesis of results on particular topics of interest to Affective Computing. We invite workshop proposals on any current or emerging topic of relevance to Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction. Two-page extended abstracts based on the workshop proposal will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Workshop papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Inclusion is dependent on paper quality as well as whether the workshop organisers want to do so. Details about the Workshops and proposal submission are communicated in a separate CFP and will appear on the ACII 2013 website soon.

Authors of accepted work (papers, extended abstract, demos) have to register in order to have their work published and they have to attend the conference to present their work.
