Augmenting Social Interaction through Affective Computing is the first workshop on affective computing that specifically aims to improve or enhance social interaction among humans. Social interactions, whether mediated or face-to-face, can benefit significantly from advances in affective computing and social signal processing. Example application areas include mental healthcare, training and coaching, negotiation, and close intimate interactions. To address this topic, we invite submissions on the relation between social interaction between humans and affective computing technologies.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Case studies on applying affective computing to social interaction
* Psychological insights into affective aspects of social interaction
* Affective signal processing specific to augmenting social interaction
* Detailed application concepts for augmenting social interaction
* Ethical aspects of augmented social interaction
* Methodological issues in evaluating social interaction applications
* Theoretical frameworks to guide research on augmented social interaction
The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 4th International conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII2011) at the FedEx Institute of Technology at the University of Memphis, TN.
* The papers should feature original empirical work, theoretical work, or a well defendable but arguable position of the authors (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference or journal while in review).
* Papers will be published in the proceedings of ACII 2011 by Springer. Papers should not exceed 10 pages and should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.
* Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be accessed through the workshop web site and the ACII conference website.
* Any questions can be emailed to Joris H. Janssen (email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>)
