Call For Papers


In conjunction witH ACM ICMI 2015
Seattle, November 13, 2015



The widespread use of deception in offline and online communication suggests the need for methods to automatically detect deceit. The 2015 ACM Workshop on Multimodal Deception Detection (WMDD 2015) will focus on multimodal and interdisciplinary approaches to deception detection, as well as approaches that utilize a single modality with clear potential for integration with additional modalities. Deception detection has received an increasing amount of attention due to the significant growth of digital media, as well as increased ethical and security concerns. Earlier approaches to deception detection were mainly focused on law enforcement applications and relied on polygraph tests, which had proven to falsely accuse the innocent and free the guilty in multiple cases. More recent work on deception has expanded to other applications, such as deception detection in social media, interviews, or deception in day-by-day interactions. Moreover, recent research on deception detection has brought together scientists from fields as diverse as computational linguistics, speech processing, computer vision, psychology, and physiology, which makes this problem particularly appealing for multimodal processing. The goal of this workshop is to provide the participants with a forum to foster the dissemination of ideas on computational and behavioral methodologies for deception detection.

We encourage the submission of papers that address the multimodal perspective of deception detection, as well as papers that use clues from a single modality but with the clear potential of being integrated with additional modalities. We also encourage the submission of interdisciplinary work stemming from a variety of fields such as computational linguistics, speech processing, computer vision, psychology, physiology, and others. The topics include, but are not limited to:
- Deception detection using multimodal processing, including modalities such as text, speech, thermal, and visual
- Deception detection using a single modality, with a potential to be integrated with other modalities
- Deception detection applied to real world applications, including healthcare, law enforcement, and others
- Study of nonverbal behaviors associated to deception
- The role of psychology in deception detection
- The role of physiology in deception detection
- Ways to integrate multiple modalities, including feature-based and decision-based fusion, and temporal alignment
- Deception detection in social media
- The construction of datasets for deception detection, from real or simulated environments
