Affective Computing & Intelligent Interaction

The conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction is the premier international forum for state of the art in research on affective and multi modal human-machine interaction and systems. Every other year the ACII conference plays an important role in shaping related scientific, academic, and higher education programs.
This year, we are especially soliciting papers discussing Enabling Behavioral and Socially-Aware Human-Machine Interfaces in areas including psychology and cognition of affective and social behaviour in HCI, affective and social behaviour analysis and synthesis, affective and social robotics.

General conference topics will include:
  • Recognition & Synthesis of Human Affect (face/ body/ speech/ physiology/ text analysis & synthesis)
  • Affective & Behavioural Interfaces (adaptive/ human-centered/ collaborative/ proactive interfaces)
  • Affective & Social Robotics (robot’s cognition & action, embodied emotion, bio-inspired architectures)
  • Affective Conversational Agents (emotion, personality, memory, reasoning, and architectures of ECA)
  • Psychology & Cognition of Affect in Affective Computing Systems (including cultural and ethical issues)
  • Affective Databases, Evaluation & Annotation Tools
  • Applications (virtual reality, entertainment, education, smart environments and biometric applications)
The program will be triple track with posters.
The Call for Papers



ACII'09 will be co-located in Amsterdam with International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA'09), held 14-16 September 2009. While this is a great opportunity to make the most of a trip to Amsterdam, please note that the same paper cannot be submitted to both conferences. We also encourage the prospective authors to submit papers with a primary focus on emotion, affective computing, and intelligent interaction to ACII'09, and papers with a primary focus on embodied conversational agents and virtual agents to IVA'09.

Since Interspeech 2009  will take place in Brighton on 6-10 September 2009 and, hence, overlaps one day with ACII'09, all speech-related sessions at ACII'09 will be scheduled on either 11 or 12 September 2009.
