EmoSPACE 2013 - Call for Papers 2nd International Workshop on
Emotion Representation, Analysis and Synthesis in Continuous Time
and Space In conjunction with IEEE FG 2013, Shanghai, China,
22/26 April, 2013

Building upon the success of the first EmoSPACE workshop at IEEE
FG'11, the second workshop in the EmoSPACE Workshop series aims
to (i) focus on continuity in input, analysis and synthesis in
terms of continuity in time and continuity in affective, mental
and social dimensions and phenomena, and (ii) discuss the issues
and the challenges pertinent in sensing, recognizing and
responding to continuous human affective and social behaviour
from diverse communicative cues and modalities.

The key aim of EmoSPACE'13, the second workshop in the series, is
to present cutting-edge research and new challenges in automatic
and continuous analysis and synthesis of human affective and
social behaviour in time and/or space in an interdisciplinary
forum of affective and behavioural scientists. More specifically,
the workshop aims (i) to bring forth existing efforts and major
accomplishments in modelling, analysis and synthesis of affective
and social behaviour in continuous time and/or space, (ii) while
encouraging the design of novel applications in context as
diverse as human-computer and human-robot interaction, clinical
and biomedical studies, learning and driving environments, and
entertainment technology, and (iii) to focus on current trends
and future directions in the field.

Suggested workshop topics include, but are by no means limited

    Cues for continuous affective, mental and social state

    facial expressions head movements and gestures body postures
    and gestures audio (e.g., speech, non-linguistic
    vocalisations, etc.) bio signals (e.g., heart, brain, thermal
    signals, etc.)

    Automatic analysis and prediction

    approaches for discretised and continuous prediction
    identifying appropriate classification and prediction methods
    introducing or identifying optimal strategies for fusion
    techniques for modelling high inter-subject variation
    approaches to determining duration of affective and social
    cues for automatic analysis

    Data acquisition and annotation

    elicitation of affective, mental and social states individual
    variations (interpersonal and cognitive issues) (multimodal)
    naturalistic data sets and annotations (multimodal)
    annotation tools modelling annotations from multiple raters
    and their reliability


    interaction with robots, virtual agents, and games (including
    tutoring) mobile affective computing smart environments&
    digital spaces (e.g., in a car, or digital artworks) implicit
    (multimedia) tagging clinical and biomedical studies (e.g.,
    autism, depression, pain etc.)

Workshop: 22 or 26 April 2013 (t.b.a.)

In submitting a manuscript to this workshop, the authors
acknowledge that no paper substantially similar in content has
been submitted to another conference or workshop. Manuscripts
should be in the IEEE FG paper format. Authors should submit
papers as a PDF file. Papers accepted for the workshop will be
allocated 6 pages in the proceedings, with the option of having
up to 2 extra pages. EmoSPACE reviewing is double blind.
Reviewing will be by members of the program committee. Each paper
will receive at least two reviews. Acceptance will be based on
relevance to the workshop, novelty, and technical quality.
Submission and reviewing will be handled via easychair.
