Special Session on Computational Intelligence for Physiological and Affective Computing, 2014 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence

06 July 2014 - 10 July 2014   Beijing, China

The special session aims to bring together researchers from the three areas of computational intelligence (neural networks, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary computation) to discuss how computational intelligence techniques can be used individually or in combination to help solve challenging affective computing problems, and conversely, how physiological and affect (emotion) and its modeling can inspire new approaches in computational intelligence and its applications.

University of Twente: PhD position on Automatic analysis of conversations in human-robot interactions

The Human Media Interaction group at the University of Twente is looking for a PhD candidate who will automatically analyse conversations based on the speakers' nonverbal vocal behaviors. The aims are to automatically determine the quality of social interaction between the speakers (both in dialogues and multi-party conversations) and the speakers' affective states. Qualitative aspects of social interaction include, amongst others, levels of engagement, cooperation, enjoyableness, valence and rapport.
