[Corpora-List] Last CFP! 2nd AAAI Workshop on Affective Content Analysis & Happiness Shared Task: Modeling Affect-in-Action

Affect analysis of content to measure emotions and its experiences is a multidisciplinary research area with limited cross-disciplinary collaboration. Other disciplines have adopted psychological models of affect - Artificial Intelligence (AI), Computational Linguistics (CL) and Human-computer Interaction (HCI) - to conceptualize and measure users’ opinions, intentions, and expressions. However, the context-specific characteristics of human affect suggest the need to measure in ways that recognize multiple interpretations of human responses.

Invited speakers: Ellen Riloff (University of Utah), Alon Halevy (Megagon Labs), Lyle Ungar (University of Pennsylvania), Pranav Anand (University of Santa Cruz)


We also invite submissions for the First Shared Task on Computational Linguistics for Affect Understanding. CL-AFF 2019 comprises two sub-tasks for analyzing happiness and wellbeing in written language, based on a corpus of 100,000 descriptions of happy moments from HappyDB.

Workshop topics:

The theme of the 2nd Affective Content Analysis workshop is “Modeling Affect in Action.” We welcome submissions on topics including (but not limited to):

● Machine learning and Deep learning models for affect modeling in content (image, audio, and video)

● Affect-aware text generation

● Spoken and formal language comparison

● Measurement and evaluation of affective content

● Affective commonsense reasoning

● Affective human-agent, -computer, and-robot interaction
