ACII 2013 - CALL FOR PAPERS
---------------------------

The 5th International Conference on Affective Computing and
Intelligent Interaction

http://www.acii2013.org

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:
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.

Note:
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.
