AfCAI 2018 Workshop: Affective Computing and Context Awareness in Ambient Intelligence

Two day workshop will be held in Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain, on 19-20 April 2018.

The objective of the workshop is to bring together people interested in research on affective computing, ambient intelligence, and context aware systems. We assume a goal-oriented yet multidisciplinary research approach, including computer science, artificial intelligence, biomedical engineering, and experimental sciences. We consider both fundamental and applied research with participation of companies where possible. Furthermore, we focus at having working sessions dedicated to identifying opportunities for cooperation and joint project applications.

The list of the topics include, but is not limited to:

  • Affective Computing (AfC)
  • Affective computer games
  • Affective social networks
  • Affect-based adaptation and personalization in intelligent systems
  • Applications of AfC in Ambient intelligence, mobiles and wearables (AmI)
  • Context aware systems: affect as context (CaS), affective data and social signals from wearable sensors
  • Knowledge Representation for AfC, including semantic methods and ontology engineering
  • Data mining and knowledge discovery methods for AfC and AmL
  • Opinion Mining and Natural Language Processing for AfC
  • Semantic computing and AfC
  • Emotive user interface
  • Gamification of AfC experiments
  • Mixed (virtual/augmented) reality environments for affect generation and acquisition
  • Models of emotion: computational, psychological, and philosophical
  • Cognitive assistants, affect- and context-aware conversational systems
  • Behavioral analysis and conflict resolution
  • Ground truth determination of emotion, mood and social signals

Before the workshop extended abstracts of the talks are expected. We expect the abstracts to be at least 5 pages long in the LNCS including references, figures etc. (this is a requirement for CEUR WS). Please use the Easychair site provided: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=afcai2018

Extended abstracts will be published with CEUR WS. A post workshop publication in a JCR journal of selected extended papers based on the talks given during the workshop and the discussion is planned.

2018-02-09 extended abstracts due
2018-02-26 notification
