** Call for Papers **

Affective Agents Workshop (AAW)

Workshop homepage: http://gaips.inesc-id.pt:8081/iva14-waa/

To be held in conjunction with IVA 2014 in Boston, MA, USA, 27-29 August

Conference homepage: http://www.ccs.neu.edu/iva2014/

** Scope **

Many researchers in the virtual agents and social robotics communities are
exploring the integration of affective computing into their systems.
However, the majority of this research focuses on only one aspect of
affective computing, such as the detection, modeling, or expression of
emotion. The goal of this workshop is to create collaborations between the
experts in each of these areas to share their latest findings so as to
shape the picture of how all of these systems can be integrated together to
create an Affective Agent that senses, models, expresses and responds to a
user's affective state in real time.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Agents and robots that respond to a user’s affective state

- Real time sensing of affect

- Expressing emotions in embodied agents

- Multimodal affective detection and expression

- Evaluation of affective systems

- Computational models of emotion, empathy and emotional contagion

- Perception-action affective loops in agents and robots

- Affective interactions in real-world environments

- Applications for affective interactive games, robots and virtual agents

- Techniques for handling multimodal and noisy data in real world scenarios
