Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to submit your work to the ACHI special track
on Human Activity Recognition from Sensors to Social Networks (HARSS) as
part of Eleventh International Conference on Advances in Computer-Human
Interactions (ACHI) March 25th - 29th 2018, Rome Italy

Understanding human behavior is one of the major challenges for HCI
research. Advances in this area carry the promise of new services, better
interaction with existing artifacts and even new forms of interaction
between humans and machines. Human behavior can be understood at different
granularities, contexts and levels of abstraction. At the lowest level,
body motion and verbal articulations can be analyzed to recognize the
current human activity. Even at this lowest level, context and granularity
of analysis plays pivotal role in understanding recognized activities. At
the highest level, behavior of large populations on social networks (either
physical or digital) is being analyzed to recognize patterns and
regularities. This special track elicits original research in all facets of
human activity recognition at all granularities, contexts and levels of
abstraction. By bringing together researchers and practitioners focusing on
all aspects of human activity recognition, we hope to foster opportunities
for cross-fertilization that can advance the state-of-the-art at all
levels. Rigorous evaluation of proposed ideas or comparisons between
existing approaches are of special interest to this track and so are
studies that bridge the gabs between different levels of human behavior

Topics include, but not limited to:
- New activity recognition algorithms,
- New evaluation methodologies,
- Datasets and reports on practical applications.
