Workshop: Intelligent Interaction and Affective Computing


Traditionally, the machine end of human–machine interaction has been very passive, and certainly has had no means of recognizing or expressing affective information. But without the ability to process such information, computers cannot be expected to communicate with humans in a natural way. The ability to recognize and express affect is one of the most important features of human beings. We therefore expect that computers will eventually have the ability to process affect and to interact with human users in ways that are similar to those in which humans interact with each other. Affective computing and intelligent interaction is a key emerging technology that focuses on the recognition, understanding, and expression of affective and emotional states by computers. The topic is currently a highly active research area and is receiving increasing attention. This strong interest is driven by a wide spectrum of promising applications such as virtual reality, network games, smart surveillance, perceptual interfaces, etc. Affective computing and intelligent interaction is a multidisciplinary topic, involving psychology, cognitive science, physiology and computer science.

This workshop aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Intelligent Interaction and Affective Computing. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Intelligent Interaction and Affective Computing. Research papers are expected to serve as valuable references for the participants and spectators. Both original, unpublished contributions and survey/tutorial types of articles are encouraged.
