Affective Computing and Intelligent Interactions 2023: CALL FOR PAPERS

The Association for the Advancement of Affective Computing (AAAC) invites
you to join us at our 11th International Conference on Affective Computing
and Intelligent Interaction (ACII), which will be held in Cambridge,
Massachusetts, USA, on September 10th – 13th, 2023.

The Conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction is
the premier international venue for interdisciplinary research on the
design of systems that can recognize, interpret, and simulate human
emotions and, more generally, affective phenomena. All accepted papers are
expected to be included in IEEE Xplore (conditional on the approval by IEEE
Computer Society) and indexed by EI. A selection of the best articles at
ACII 2023 will be invited to submit extended versions to the IEEE Transactions
on Affective Computing.

The theme of ACII 2023 is “Affective Computing: Context and Multimodality”.
Fully understanding, predicting, and generating affective processes
undoubtedly requires the careful integration of multiple contextual factors
(e.g., gender, personality, relationships, goals, environment, situation,
and culture), information modalities (e.g., audio, images, text, touch, and
smells) and evaluation in ecological environments. Thus, ACII 2023
especially welcomes submitted research that assesses and advances Affective
Computing’s ability to do this integration.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Recognition and Synthesis of Human Affect from ALL Modalities

   - Multimodal Modeling of Cognitive and Affective States
   - Contextualized Modeling of Cognitive and Affective States
   - Facial and Body Gesture Recognition, Modeling and Animation
   - Affective Speech Analysis, Recognition and Synthesis
   - Recognition and Synthesis of Auditory Affect Bursts (Laughter, Cries,
   - Motion Capture for Affect Recognition
   - Affect Recognition from Alternative Modalities (Physiology, Brain
   Waves, etc.)
   - Affective Text Processing and Sentiment Analysis
   - Multimodal Data Fusion for Affect Recognition
   - Synthesis of Multimodal Affective Behavior
   - Summarisation of Affective Behavior

   - Distributed/Collaborative Multimodal Proactive Interfaces
   - Tools and System Design Issues for Building Affective and Proactive
   - Evaluation of Affective, Behavioural, and Proactive Interfaces

 Affective, Social and Inclusive Robotics and Virtual Agents

   - Artificial Agents for Supporting Mental and Physical Well-Being
   - Emotion in Robot and Virtual Agent Cognition and Action
   - Embodied Emotion

Affect and Group Emotions

   - Analyzing and modeling groups taking into account emergent states
   and/or emotions
   - Integration of artificial agents (robots, virtual characters) in the
   group life by leveraging its affective loop: interaction paradigms,
   strategies, modalities, adaptation
   - Collaborative affective interfaces (e.g., for inclusion, for
   education, for games and entertainment)

Open Resources for Affective Computing

   - Shared Datasets for Affective Computing
   - Benchmarks for Affective Computing
   - Open-source Software/Tools for Affective Computing

Fairness, Accountability, Privacy, Transparency and Ethics in Affective

   - Bias, imbalance and inequalities in data and modeling approaches in
   the context of Affective Computing
   - Bias mitigation in the context of Affective Computing
   - Explainability and Transparency in the context of Affective Computing
   - Privacy-preserving affect sensing and modeling
   - Ethical aspects in the context of Affective Computing


   - Health and well-being
   - Education
   - Entertainment
   - Consumer Products
   - User Experience
