Dear Colleagues,

We have extended the deadline for our workshop titled “Socially-Informed AI for Healthcare: Understanding and Generating Multimodal Nonverbal Cues” which takes place as part of the 23rd ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction 2021 in October 2021 in Montreal, Canada. 

The new deadline is June 27, 2021. For further information, please see https://social-ai-for-healthcare.github.io/ <https://social-ai-for-healthcare.github.io/>. 


Advances in the areas of face and gesture analysis, computational paralinguistics, multimodal interaction, and human-computer interaction have all played a major role in shaping research into assistive technologies over the last decade, resulting in a breadth of practical applications ranging from diagnosis and treatment tools to social companion technologies. While nonverbal cues play an essential role, there are still many key issues to overcome, which affect both the development and the deployment of multimodal technologies in real-world settings. The key aim of this multidisciplinary workshop is to foster cross-pollination by bringing together computer scientists and social psychologists to discuss innovative ideas, challenges and opportunities for understanding and generating multimodal nonverbal cues within the scope of healthcare applications. Topics include, but are not limited to:

Analysis and synthesis of multimodal nonverbal cues, including facial expressions, paralinguistics, eye gaze and head movements, body postures and hand gestures, audio (e.g., turn taking, vocal outbursts, etc.) within an interaction context, 
Co-modelling of nonverbal and verbal cues,
Cross-modality learning for the analysis and synthesis of nonverbal cues,
Novel methodologies for modelling long-term interactions through multiple modalities,
Modelling of interpersonal coordination such as convergence, synchrony or mimicry,
Personalisation and adaptation mechanisms for healthcare applications,
Automatic detection of non-conforming patterns and/or violations in social norms and expectations (expectancy violations theory) in nonverbal interaction,
Clinical applications (e.g., autism, depression, anxiety, etc.), including defining appropriate qualitative and quantitative evaluation methods,
Privacy preserving approaches to data collection or synthetic data generation,
Novel technological devices or robotics platforms specifically for healthcare applications,
Explainable AI techniques focused towards clinical applications.
