Call For Papers

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 12, 2018

Affect analysis of content to measure emotions and its experiences is
a multidisciplinary research area with limited cross-disciplinary collaboration. Other disciplines have adopted psychological models of affect - Artificial Intelligence (AI), Computational Linguistics (CL) and Human-computer Interaction (HCI) - to conceptualize
and measure users’ opinions, intentions, and expressions. However, the context-specific characteristics of human affect suggest the need to measure in ways that recognize multiple interpretations of human responses.

Invited speakers:
Ellen Riloff (University of Utah), Alon Halevy (Megagon Labs), Lyle Ungar (University of Pennsylvania), Pranav Anand (University of Santa Cruz)


CALL FOR SHARED TASK SUBMISSIONS: CL-AFF: IN PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
We also invite submissions for the First Shared Task on Computational
Linguistics for Affect Understanding. CL-AFF 2019 comprises two sub-tasks for analyzing happiness and wellbeing in written language, based on a corpus of 100,000 descriptions of happy moments from HappyDB.


Workshop topics:
The theme of the 2nd Affective Content Analysis workshop is “Modeling Affect in Action.” We welcome submissions on topics including (but not limited to):
● Machine learning and Deep learning models for affect modeling in content (image, audio, and video)
● Affect-aware text generation
● Spoken and formal language comparison
● Measurement and evaluation of affective content
● Affective commonsense reasoning
● Affective human-agent, -computer, and-robot interaction
● Multimodal emotion recognition and sentiment analysis
● Psycho-demographic profiling
● Psycho-linguistics, including stylometrics and typography
● Modeling consumer’s affect reactions
● Computational models for consumer behavior theories
● Consumer psychology at scale from big data
