- Workshop date: October 25 or 29, 2020 (virtual)

*Call for Papers:*Millions of people worldwide are affected by mental
disorders that span depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive
disorder, schizophrenia, and dementia. Reliable assessment, monitoring, and
evaluation are important to identify individuals in need of treatment,
evaluate treatment response, and achieve remission or moderate impact. Many
indicators of presence or severity of mental disorders are observable.
Indicators include psychomotor agitation (inability to sit still, pacing,
hand wringing) or retardation (slowed speech and body movements, speech
that is decreased in volume or vocal quality), changes in facial
expression, gaze, body movements, and cognition. Attempts at diagnosis,
screening and evaluation of treatment response from behavioral indicators
have focused primarily on the individual alone and individual modalities.
Yet, disorders strongly impact social interaction and relationships in
family members, work settings, and on social media and are multimodal as
well as interpersonal. For these reasons, it is critical to use multimodal
indicators in a variety of interpersonal contexts.

The proposed Multimodal Interaction in Psychopathology workshop aims to
bring together computer scientists, psychologists, behavioral scientists,
neuroscientists, and clinicians with a focus on multimodal interaction in
psychopathology. This workshop will provide an opportunity to present
recent advancements for diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders, to
share knowledge, and generate interdisciplinary networking and

We are soliciting original contributions that address advancements and
challenges in multimodal interaction in psychopathology including but not
limited to the following topics:

- Assessment of psychopathology (detection of depression,
obsessive-compulsive disorder, dementia, autism, suicidal ideation or
behavior, and other conditions)
- Monitoring psychopathology
- Evaluation of treatment response
- Interpersonal indicators and mechanisms
- Patient-clinician interaction
- Family interaction
- Group therapy
- Human interaction on social media (e.g., detection of early signals of
psychopathology, suicidal behavior)
- Multimodal behavioral indicators of psychopathology occurrence and
severity, especially those concerned with change over time
- Face and gesture analysis
- Speech and language processing
- Wearable sensors for monitoring psychopathology

*Paper Submission:*We invite submissions of long papers (up to 8 pages not
including references), short papers (up to 4 pages not including
references) and abstracts (1 page not including references) formatted
according to ICMI guidelines.

Papers and abstracts should be submitted through:
