Special Session on Human Affects in Intelligent Interfaces

With the advent of computing technologies human affects are becoming the key issues to study and development of affective computing technologies which will demonstrate the robust algorithms and systems that can recognize, interpret, process and simulate the mental states and emotional affects of human beings. Investigating of socially and emotionally adept spontaneous technologies is becoming necessity in these modern days for understanding of inference of various humans actions including body postures, gestures, facial expressions, vocal nuances and other physiological signals as well as it will become an interesting study to bring humanistic actions in robotic devices, avatars and other intelligent interfaces. Human emotions are fundamental in influencing cognition, perception, learning, randomized actions, communication, knowledge representation, perceptual interpretations and decision making.

To understand and demonstrate the key areas of affective computing, this special session on Human Affects in Intelligent Interfaces aims to provide a vibrant forum for experienced and young researchers, academicians and industry people to discuss the problems, new proposals, exchange ideas and finding solutions for the existing problems of human affects computing and raw ideas on human – robot interactions.

Authors should submit their papers online using EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Further guidelines for submission are posted at: http://icacci-conference.org/web/call-for-papers

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Psychological models of human affects
  • Intelligent interfaces – both software and hardware based 
  • Cognitive reasoning
  • Computational models of intelligence
  • Human activity recognition
  • Mood detection
  • Emotion recognition
  • Human behavior and physiological affects
  • Facial expressions, gesture and posture analysis in identity verification
  • Affective interfaces (games, learning, knowledge representation and interpretations, etc.)
  • Affective data representation and database indexing techniques
  • Human robot interactions
  • Social aspects of affective computing
  • Intelligent diagnostic interfaces
  • Emotions in machines and intelligent devices
  • Humanistic analysis of mental and psychological affects
  • Vocal affects inference
  • Robots for autism
  • Mind reading machines
  • Affects in virtual reality
  • Theoretical aspects of human emotions
  • Environmental effects on bodily manifestations

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the conference before the indicated deadline. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
