International Workshop on Conflict and Communication - Multimodal Social Signals of conflict and negotiation in humans, animals, and machines

29 October 2013 - 31 October 2013   Rome, Italy

Deadline EXTENDED to 24th of June. This workshop focuses on interpersonal and social conflict, and on the communication that may arise from it, but also give rise to it, or finally determine conflict escalation or resolution. Since such a complex topic as conflict needs to be confronted by a high level of multidisciplinarity, we encourage contributions from various fields.

Workshop on Mediated Touch and Affect (MeTA)

02 September 2013 - 02 September 2013   Geneva

The main aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from diverse communities, such as affective computing, haptics, augmented reality, communication, design, psychology, human-robot interaction, and telepresence. The goal is to discuss the current state of, and the future directions for, research in aspects of the touch-technology-affect triangle (as it is exemplified in mediated social touch); to highlight good case studies; to reflect on the methodological issues; and to brainstorm about applications. We welcome papers that deal with touch, and haptic technologies in relation to affect.

Deadline:  01 May 2013

International Workshop on Techniques Towards Companion Technologies

4th International Workshop on Empathic Computing (IWEC-13)

03 August 2013 - 05 August 2013   Beijing, China

On its fourth year, IWEC-13 focuses on the ambient intelligent, socio-affective context of empathic computing and how machine learning approaches can be used to effectively build robust, reliable and scalable empathic systems. Empathic computing systems may be applied to various areas such as e-health, geriatric domestic support, empathic home/space, productivity systems, entertainment and e-learning. Lastly, this approach shall draw upon the expertise in, and theories of, ubiquitous sensor-rich computing, embedded systems, affective computing, user adaptive interfaces, image processing, digital signal processing and machine learning in artificial intelligence.

Deadline:  20 April 2013

Second International Workshop on Context Based Affect Recognition CBAR 2013 Held in conjunction with Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction 2013 2-5 September 2013, Geneva, Switzerland.

Deadline:  20 May 2013

4th International Workshop on Empathic Computing (IWEC-13)

03 August 2013 - 03 August 2013   Beijing, China

Empathic computing systems are software or physical context-aware computing systems capable of building user models and provide richer, naturalistic, system-initiated empathic responses with the objective of providing intelligent assistance and support. We view empathy as a cognitive act that involves the perception of the user's thought, affect (i.e., emotional feeling or mood), intention or goal, activity, and/or situation and a response due to this perception that is supportive of the user. An empathic computing system is ambient intelligent, i.e., it consists of seamlessly integrated ubiquitous networked sensors, microprocessors and software for it to perceive the various user behavioral patterns from multimodal inputs. On its fourth year, IWEC-13 focuses on the ambient intelligent, socio-affective context of empathic computing and how machine learning approaches can be used to effectively build robust, reliable and scalable empathic systems. While primarily data-driven, the workshop this year will investigate how domain knowledge and contextual information can be used to reduce the complexity of emotion analysis and synthesis, as well as empathic response modeling.

Deadline:  20 April 2013

INTERSPEECH 2013 Computational Paralinguistics Challenge (ComParE)

25 August 2013 - 29 August 2013   Lyon, France

After four consecutive Challenges at INTERSPEECH, there still exists a multiplicity of not yet covered, but highly relevant paralinguistic phenomena. In the last instalments, we focused on single speakers. With a new task, we now want to broaden to analysing discussion of multiple speakers in the Conflict Sub-Challenge. A further novelty is introduced by the Social Signals Sub-Challenge: For the first time, non-linguistic events have to be classified and localised – laughter and fillers. In the Emotion Sub-Challenge we are literally “going back to the roots”. However, by intention, we use acted material for the first time to fuel the ever on-going discussion on differences between naturalistic and acted material and hope to highlight the differences. Finally, the Autism Sub-Challenge picks up on Autism Spectrum Condition in children’s speech in this year. Apart from intelligent and socially competent future agents and robots, main applications are found in the medical domain and surveillance. The Challenge corpora feature rich annotation such as speaker meta-data, orthographic transcript, phonemic transcript, and segmentation. All four are given with distinct definitions of test, development, and training partitions, incorporating speaker independence as needed in most real-life settings. Benchmark results of the most popular approaches will be provided as in the years before. In these respects, the INTERSPEECH 2013 COMPUTATIONAL PARALINGUISTICS CHALLENGE (ComParE) shall help bridging the gap between excellent research on paralinguistic information in spoken language and low compatibility of results.

Deadline:  18 March 2013
