Collection CHI-WS: Evaluating Affective Interfaces­--Innovative Approaches
Call for Participation for a workshop held at CHI 2005 Evaluating Affective Interfaces­--Innovative Approaches Katherine Isbister, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, U.S.A., isbisk@rpi.edu Kristina Höök, Swedish Institute of Computer Science, Sweden, kia@sics.se There is strengthening interest within the CHI community in designing affective engagement with interfaces. Affect is an important part of user engagement with games, interactive narrative, synthetic characters and robots, wearables, voice interfaces, and many other interactive systems. Systems designed to promote community or to enhance safety, two key themes at this year’s conference, also benefit from consideration of users’ emotional states. Core CHI practitioners have promoted the value of thoughtfully crafting emotional qualities of interfaces (e.g. Don Norman’s 2003 CHI keynote; October 2004 ‘Funology’ issue of Interactions). Research has advanced our abilities to detect affect in users and incorporate this into system response (e.g. Picard, 2000). But how do we determine whether someone has been affected emotionally in the way we’d like, by interacting with a system? How do we test affective responses early in the design cycle­? What kinds of prototyping are appropriate? Where do traditional HCI methods fall short? What new techniques and advances can be used to improve the design and evaluation cycle for creating affective interfaces? This one-day workshop brings together researchers and industry practitioners in the area of affective interface design and evaluation, in order to: 1. Bring together examples of affective interface evaluation strategies already in use. 2. Put together a list of current best practices, and collect a body of references from past efforts to evaluate affective reactions to designed systems (both successes and failures), to help us all leverage what is already known. 3. Identify key challenges and issues for future work. We invite submissions of two varieties: 1. A brief, 2-4 page paper describing either - affective evaluation techniques you use which are effective. - explorations of new tactics for affective evaluation and design. Examples of affective evaluation techniques might include (but are not limited to): biometrics, questionnaire design, video analysis, focus groups, participatory design strategies. The focus should be upon how this technique allows you to gauge users’ affective reactions to your system, toward more effective design. 2.A brief demonstration of an affective system that requires evaluation. If you are proposing a demonstration, submit a 2-4 page paper describing the system, including images, and discussing key challenges in evaluation. (Please only propose a demonstration that you can bring along on your own laptop for display). Papers and demonstrations will be selected for the workshop by the program committee based upon their relevance to the core topic and outcome goals of the workshop. Submit papers to Katherine Isbister (isbisk@rpi.edu) by January 3, 2005. More information about the workshop can also be found at http://www.rpi.edu/~isbisk/chi2005/CHIworkshop.html.

The EyesWeb Week is a tutorial aiming at sharing with participants the InfoMus Lab’s experience in scientific and technological developments as well as in artistic production matured around the EyesWeb project. The EyesWeb project focuses on different aspects of non-verbal multimodal communication, including human full-body movement and musical gesture, and aims at understanding the affective, expressive content gesture conveys. The project is centred on an open hardware and software platform, EyesWeb 4, for developing real-time multimedia applications characterised by multimodal interaction. Research and development in the EyesWeb project are partially supported by several EU-IST and national projects. This one-week tutorial aims at providing scientists, technicians, and artists with the opportunity to master and explore in detail the EyesWeb project and open platform. Lectures and experiments are structured in different tracks: a track is specifically designed for dancers, choreographers, musicians, and content creators. A parallel track concerns the internals and core architecture of the new EyesWeb 4 platform and related libraries for multimodal analysis, and it is focused for computer engineers and professionals. Participants will be introduced to the different aspects of the EyesWeb project – from design to implementation of experience-centric mediated interactive systems to software and system engineering issues. Sample hands-on and installations will be faced, also according to participants’ skills and demands. Participants are encouraged to present and discuss their own EyesWeb projects at the EyesWeb Week.

News Item 'Affect and Emotion in Human-Computer Interaction' book now available online
Affect and emotion play an important role in our everyday lives: They are present whatever we do, wherever we are, and wherever we go, without us being aware of them for much of the time. When it comes to interaction, be it with humans, technology, or humans via technology, we suddenly become more aware of emotion, either by seeing the other’s emotional expression, or by not getting an emotional response while anticipating one. The present book provides an account of the latest work on a variety of aspects related to affect and emotion in human-technology interaction. It covers theoretical issues, user experience and design aspects as well as sensing issues, and reports on a number of affective applications that have been developed in recent years.
Event How much human-like should an Intelligent Interface be ? Workshop in conjunction with AVI 2004 (Gallipoli (Lecce), Italy, from Tuesday, 25 May 2004 to Friday, 28 May 2004)
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and developers of user interfaces that incorporate human-like qualities in one or the other form in order to exchange ideas and experiences but also stimulate controversial discussions regarding issues such as: Which human-like properties do we need? How to reflect human-like properties at the surface level? How to evaluate this kind of interfaces? What are the most promising application areas for this kind of intelligent interfaces?
Event First International Conference on "Affective Computing and Intelligent Interfaces" (Beijing, from Sunday, 23 October 2005 to Monday, 24 October 2005)
Traditional human machine interaction is normally based on passive instruments such as keyboard, mouse, etc. It’s impossible for them to understand and express emotions. Without the ability of emotion processing, computers cannot be expected to be a human-like machine, and also cannot be expected to communicate with humans in a natural and harmonious way. Emotion is one of the most important features of humans. We therefore expect that computers should have the ability to process emotion and to interact with human users in a natural way. Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction is a key technology to enable computers to observe, understand and synthesize emotions, and to behave vividly. We decided to promote this Conference in order to provide an opportunity for scientists, engineers, and graduate students to present and discuss new problems, solutions, and technologies in the area.
Event ENACTIVE05 International Conference (Genova, Italy, from Thursday, 17 November 2005 to Friday, 18 November 2005)
The 2nd International Conference on Enactive Interfaces (www.enactive2005.org), promoted by the European Union Network of Excellence ENACTIVE (www.enactivenetwork.org). The scope of the conference is creating a truly multidisciplinary research community on the new generation of human-computer interfaces called Enactive Interfaces. Enactive Interfaces are related to a fundamental "interaction" concept which is not exploited by most of the existing human-computer interface technologies. In the symbolic way of learning, knowledge is stored as words, mathematical symbols or other symbol systems, while in the iconic stage knowledge is stored in the form of visual images, such as diagrams and illustrations. On the other hand, ENACTIVE knowledge is a form of knowledge based on action for apprehension tasks. Enactive knowledge is not simply multisensory mediated knowledge, but knowledge stored in the form of motor responses and acquired by the act of "doing". A typical example of enactive knowledge is constituted by the competence required by tasks such as driving a car, dancing, playing a musical instrument, modelling objects from clay, performing sports. This type of knowledge transmission can be considered the most direct, in the sense that it is natural and intuitive, since it is based on the experience and on the perceptual responses to motor acts. Deadline for submission of papers: September 3, 2005.
