Emotion and Computing 2013

Call for Papers
7th Workshop:
“emotion and computing – current research and future impact”

WORKSHOP at the KI 2013
Koblenz, September 16th, 2013

The workshop series “emotion and computing – current research and
future impact” has been providing a platform for discussion of emotion related topics of
computer science and AI since 2006. In recent years computer science research has shown increasing efforts in the field of software agents which incorporate emotion. Several approaches have been  made concerning emotion recognition, emotion modelling, generation of emotional user interfaces and dialogue systems as well as anthropomorphic communication agents. Motivations for emotional computing are manifold. From a scientific point of view, emotions play  an essential role in decision making, as well as in perception and learning. Furthermore,  emotions influence rational thinking and therefore should be part of rational agents as proposed by  artificial intelligence research. Another focus is on human computer interfaces which include  believable animations of
interface agents. From a user perspective, emotional interfaces can
significantly increase motivation and engagement which is of high relevance to the games and  e-learning industry. Moreover, motivational and emotional aspects may play a key role in  persuasive technologies, which intend to influence the user behaviour.

Contributions are solicited from the following fields:

-Artificial Intelligence Research
-Cognitive Sciences and Cognitive Robotics
-Multi-agent System Technology
-Speech Synthesis and Speech Recognition
-Dialogue Systems and Communication
-Modeling Uncertainty and Vagueness
-Computer Game Development
-User Modeling and Personalization
-Applications using models of emotion
-Persuasive Computing/Technologies
-Affective Computing

Contributions are expected in the following form:

– Presentations should have a duration of 15-20 minutes. Each
presenter is required to submit a short paper on the presented
topic. Papers are subject to regular peer review and subsequent
publication within the workshop proceedings (4-8 pages).

– Demonstrations are documented by an extended abstract which
should not exceed 1 page in total

– Workshop submission is electronic. Submitted papers
should conform Springer LNCS style and must
be written in English. Papers will be published on the
workshop website. Further publication is in discussion
and depends on submitted papers.

Important Dates:

Workshop paper submission deadline: July 1st, 2013
Notification of workshop paper acceptance: July 23rd, 2013
Workshop camera ready copy submission: August 19th, 2013
