ACII 2017 – Call for Papers

Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction

October 23-26, 2017 San Antonio, Texas or follow us on Twitter @acii2017


Call for papers

The Association for the Advancement of Affective Computing (AAAC) invites you to join us at our seventh International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII), which will be held in San Antonio, Texas on October 23-26, 2017. The Conference series is the premier international forum for interdisciplinary research on the design of systems that can recognize, interpret, and simulate human emotions and related affective phenomena.


A selection of the best articles will appear in a “Best of ACII2017” special section of IEEE’s Transactions on Affective Computing. Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore. The theme of ACII2017 is “Affective Computing in Action,” highlighting the impact of affective computing technologies in the wider world.



ACII2017 will feature a broad program, with regular talks, posters, demos, workshops, special sessions, a doctoral consortium, special industry panel session on affective computing applications and keynote talks by James Russell (Boston College), Tanzeem Choudhury (Cornell University) and Thomas R. Insel (former NIHM). We will have two special sessions: “Emotions in Cognition, Adaptive Behavior and Action Selection” and “Utilising Big Unlabelled and Unmatched Data for Affective Computing”.



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Recognition of Human Affect: Uni- or multimodal recognition of affect from face, body, gesture, voice text, or physiology; affective face/body animation; expression and gesture recognition; sentiment analysis
  • Synthesis of Human Affect: Affective speech synthesis, modeling and animation, synthesis of auditory affect bursts, synthesis of multimodal affective behavior
  • Affective Interfaces: Affective brain-computer interfaces, design of affective loop and affective dialog systems; mobile, tangible, haptic and virtual/augmented interfaces; affectively-smart environments; affectively proactive interfaces
  • Social and Behavioral Science Involving Affective Computing: Cognitive affective models; models of moral decision-making; tools for social science research; computational models of emotion; psychological factors in affective computing (personality, culture); ethical issues; dyadic and group affective processes
  • Affective and Social Robotics and Virtual Agents: Emotions in robot cognition and action, embodied issues in emotion; affective virtual agents; memory, reasoning, and learning of affective systems; affective architectures for virtual & robotic systems
  • Affective Applications: Databases and tools; biometrics; medical; assistive; virtual reality; entertainment; education; ambient intelligence; industrial
