ACE 2014 - 2nd Workshop on Applications of Affective Computing in Intelligent Environments

Date2014-07-02 - 2014-07-04


VenueShanghai , China China



Topics/Call fo Papers

There has been considerable research on Intelligent Environments (IE) in which pervasive infrastructures have tried to understand user needs through their interactions and behaviours to improve user experience and personalisation. Consequentially there has been a need for researchers and industry to develop more unobtrusive and natural communication between computing artefacts and users, as well as to expand the spectrum of what can be sensed to include the user’s physiological and affective responses to the environment.
Affective computing (AC) is concerned with affect aware interactions performed with and through computers. It is defined as computing that relate to, arise from, or deliberately influences human affective sates as was initially proposed by Professor R. Picard (MIT Media Lab). Applications of AC based systems in IEs aim to achieve a positive impact on human everyday lives by monitoring, recognising and acting on our physiological signals, speech, facial expressions and gestures to reveal how our emotional responses, changing moods, feelings and sensations, such as pain, touch, tastes and smells are a reaction to or influence our interactions with the environment.
Following the successful organisation of the 1st International workshop (ACIE’13), the focus of this year’s workshop will be on the emerging market of affordable sensing devices and applications for real-time and pervasive capture of various physiological, emotional and behavioural states of the user. This has become an enabler for facilitating richer context awareness and personalisation in user centred systems and services. The interplay of AC and IEs must address multidisciplinary areas related to: artificial intelligence, biology, kinesiology, psychology, sociology and ergonomics that will have a direct implication in application design and successful deployment of these systems.
Areas of Interest:
We expect submitted papers to be of a high quality describing original research in the area with particular emphasis, to real world applications. Topic areas include, but are not limited to:
Multimodal and multisensory fusion
Intelligent affect aware systems and services for IEs
Affect based augmented artefacts for IEs
Affect driven immersive interfaces for IEs
Personalised physiological and emotive modelling
Affect recognition based systems for IEs
Affect aware ambient intelligence
Affect based adaptive systems for IEs
Physiological and emotion driven control
Gesture based affect recognition
Real-time affect processing and recognition.
New AC based models/frameworks for IEs
Learning systems
AC and gamification system for IEs.
Applications of BCI for IEs
Affect aware internet of things
eHealth and Social care applications of AC
Guest Speaker:
To be announced.
Submission Details:
Paper submissions are now open and can be made here.
All papers accepted in the Workshops program will be compiled in a proceedings volume to accompany all the sponsored workshops. Accepted papers will also be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series (ISI Indexed) of IOS Press and electronically available through ACM Digital Library.
