International Symposium on Companion Technology (ISCT 2015)

Ulm, Germany, September 23-25 2015

Our program currently consists of four international Keynote Speakers:
Nick Campbell (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland), David Benyon (Edinburgh
Napier University, UK), Susanne Biundo-Stephan (Ulm University, Germany),
Michael Pavel (Northeastern University, Boston, USA) and 14 international
renowned experts talking about topics such as: Dialogue and Decision
Making, Handling Uncertainty in Hybrid System Architectures, Emotion
Theory in Human-Computer-Interaction, Trustworthiness of Companion-Systems
and Multimodality.


*** Important Dates ***

- Poster Submission Deadline: 10 July 2015
- Notification: 31 July 2015
- Camera Ready Submission: 01 September 2015
- Symposium: 23 - 25 September 2015 at Ulm University, Germany


*** General Information ***

The International Symposium on Companion-Technologies provides a forum
for researchers and practitioners to take a crossdisciplinary perspective
on all aspects of research, development, and exploitation of
Companion-Technologies. We will initiate a dialogue on fundamental research
questions, development, and applications of Companion-Technologies.
The organisers are looking forward to welcoming you to the first ISCT
symposium in Ulm.

Posters are the main medium to contribute to the International Symposium on
Companion Technology (ISCT 2015). Posters provide the opportunity for
researchers to get feedback on early-stage work, discuss potential
collaborations and discuss current issues in the field of Companion
Technologies. Accepted submissions will be presented as a physical poster
at the symposium and made available via the Extended Abstracts proceedings
published through the Open Access Archive of the University of Ulm which
is certified as a DINI Open Access Repository and Publishing Service.


*** Topics ***

Companion-Technology is an emerging field of cross-disciplinary research,
aiming at a paradigm shift in human-technology interaction enabling
technical systems to smartly adapt their services to individual users, their
current needs, requests, situation, and emotion. Its development requires
cross-disciplinary research in fields such as Cognitive Sciences, Computer
Science, Engineering, Psychology and Neurobiology. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

+ Affective Computing
+ Computational Models of Cognitive Processes
+ Cooperative and Adaptive Systems
+ Decision Making
+ Emotion and Disposition Modelling
+ Health Applications of Knowledge-based Systems
+ Knowledge-based Dialogue Management
+ Knowledge-based Human-Computer Interaction
+ Multimodal Emotion and Motivation Recognition
+ Multimodal Stress and Pain Recognition
+ Neuroscience, Neural Models and Electrophysiology
+ Reasoning for Adaptive Systems
+ Strategy Change and Reversal Learning
+ User-Centered Planning


*** Submission Guidelines ***

A poster submission consists of 4-6 pages and optionally a 1-page poster draft.
The extended abstract of the poster must be formatted according to the Springer
LNCS format (
The posters themselves have no predefined formatting, but we recommend that
the poster's dimensions are in A0 or similar format (84cm x 119cm / 33 x 47).
The posters must be in portrait orientation. Authors are expected to register
for the symposium and to bring the accepted poster to the symposium site with
them and be present throughout the poster session. The submissions do not need
to be anonymized. You should submit your work by July 10th 2015 using the
submission system (EasyChair:


*** Selection Process ***

Submissions will be accepted based on a juried selection process. Submissions
are reviewed by a committee but in a less rigorous process than at a refereed
conference. At least one author must register for the symposium and present
the poster.

Review committee:

+ André Brechmann (Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology)
+ Anke Huckauf (Ulm University)
+ Heiko Neumann (Ulm University)
+ Dietmar Rösner (Magdeburg University)
