Call for Papers

We are calling for papers to be presented at ACII 2019, the 8th International Conference

Proceedings will be published by the IEEE, and indexed in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. A selection of the best articles at ACII2019 will be invited to submit extended versions to IEEE’s Transactions on Affective Computing. These will be published in a “Best of ACII” special issue of this premier journal.

The general conference topics include:

Psychology & Cognition of Affect in Designing Computational Systems

  • Computational Models of Emotional Processes
  • Issues in Psychology & Cognition of Affect in Affective Computing Systems
  • Cultural Differences in Affective Design and Interaction
  • Ethical Issues in Affective Computing
  • Inclusive Design

Recognition and Synthesis of Human Affect from ALL Modalities

  • Facial and Body Gesture Recognition, Modelling and Animation
  • Affective Speech Analysis, Recognition and Synthesis
  • Recognition and Synthesis of Auditory Affect Bursts (Laughter, Cries, etc.)
  • Motion Capture for Affect Recognition
  • Affect Recognition from Alternative Modalities (Physiology, Brain Waves, etc.)
  • Affective Text Processing and Sentiment Analysis
  • Multimodal Data Fusion for Affect Recognition
  • Synthesis of Multimodal Affective Behavior
  • Creating models for user diversity (ability, language, culture, gender, age)

Affective Interfaces for ALL

  • Inclusive, affective user interfaces
  • Design of Affective Loop and Affective Dialogue Systems
  • Human-Centred Human-Behaviour-Adaptive Interfaces
  • Interfaces for Attentive & Intelligent Environments
  • Mobile, Tangible and Virtual/Augmented Multimodal Proactive Interfaces
  • Distributed/Collaborative Multimodal Proactive Interfaces
  • Tools and System Design Issues for Building Affective and Proactive Interfaces
