ESSEM at ACII 2017 3rd International Workshop on Emotion and Sentiment in Social and Expressive Media (ESSEM 2017): User Engagement and Interaction


Co-located with the seventh International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction ACII 2017 (http://acii2017.org/), San Antonio, Texas October 23, 2017

***Submission deadline: June 15, 2017***

The role of emotional intelligence is increasing at fast speed in everyday computer-mediated interactions, thanks to the integration of more or less explicit affective elements in social networks, apps, virtual assistants, etc. Expressed through emojis, color, tags or speech, affect has become part of our relationships with computers, adding depth and involvement to them. The technical advancement of the available expressive means, from 3D to language technologies, is one of the key factors of this process. ESSEM 2017 addresses the expression of emotions in many-to-many interaction and in one-to-one interaction as a tool for promoting, analysing and measuring user engagement. In particular, we are interested in tools and models that rely on NLP, acoustic and video analysis; theories and methods that bridge the expression of emotions from language to media are especially needed to overcome the limitations of language-specific and media-specific approaches. ESSEM 2017 focuses on interaction as a testbed for the models and tools developed for social and expressive media. The ultimate goal is to devise socio-emotional strategies to foster user engagement. We encourage contributions on applications that specifically address the role of sentiment and emotions in the interactions that occur through social and expressive media, with a special focus on cultural heritage, artistic expression, education and entertainment (e.g., storytelling, artistic curation, audience development, games and edutainment). ESSEM aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners both from academia and industry. It wants to take an active part in growing a new field in terms of multidisciplinary research and to investigate open issues by cross-validating different approaches in emotion research. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Affect-related phenomena in social media - Affect-related phenomena in expressive media - Affect-related phenomena in the user's engagement process - Subjectivity, sentiments and emotions in social & expressive media - Affect and figurative language, stance or deception in social & expressive media - Design of engaging agents - Socio-emotional strategies for user engagement - User engagement in human-human and human-agent interactions using NLP & audio-video analysis - Grounding affect in conversational context - Affect and regulation of human-agent interaction - Affect and emotions in embodiment - Affect in interactive entertainment (drama, storytelling, games, etc.) and art (artistic curation, audience development, etc.) - Applications of affective computing in multimodal interaction - Applications of sentiment analysis and emotion detection in social & expressive media
