Dear List, Let me forward the following call for papers to those of you interested and thank you for excusing cross-postings: -------------------------------------------------------------- Call for Papers -------------------------------------------------------------- 5th Workshop: "emotion and computing - current research and future impact" WORKSHOP at the KI 2011 Berlin, October 4/5, 2011 -------------------------------------------------------------- The workshop series "emotion and computing - current research and future impact" has been providing a platform for discussion of emotion related topics of computer science and AI since 2006. In recent years computer science research has shown increasing efforts in the field of software agents which incorporate emotion. Several approaches have been made concerning emotion recognition, emotion modelling, generation of emotional user interfaces and dialogue systems as well as anthropomorphic communication agents. Motivations for emotional computing are manifold. From a scientific point of view, emotions play an essential role in decision making, as well as in perception and learning. Furthermore, emotions influence rational thinking and therefore should be part of rational agents as proposed by artificial intelligence research. Another focus is on human computer interfaces which include believable animations of interface agents. From a user perspective, emotional interfaces can significantly increase motivation and engagement which is of high relevance to the games and e-learning industry. This workshop intends to discuss the scientific methods considering their benefit for current and future applications. Especially when regarding the subject of emotion recognition, this also includes ethical aspects. Contributions are solicited from the following fields: -Artificial Intelligence Research -Cognitive Sciences and Cognitive Robotics -Multi-agent System Technology -Speech Synthesis and Speech Recognition -Dialogue Systems -Modeling Uncertainty and Vagueness -Computer Game Development -User Modeling and Personalization -Applications using models of emotion -Affective Computing Contributions are expected in the following form: - Presentations should have a duration of 15-20 minutes. They are documented by a short research paper which should cover 4-8 pages in total - Demonstrations are documented by an extended abstract which should not exceed 1 page in total - Workshop submission is electronic. Submitted papers should conform Springer LNCS style and must be written in English. Papers will be published on the workshop website. Further publication is in discussion and depends on submitted papers. Important Dates: Workshop paper submission deadline: June 27, 2011 Notification of workshop paper acceptance: July 11, 2011 Workshop camera ready copy submission: August 1st, 2011 Organization and Scientific Committee: Prof. Dr. Dirk Reichardt, Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University Stuttgart (main contact) Dipl.-Ing.
