The increasing complexity of modern human-computer systems and interfaces results in an increasing demand for intelligent social interaction that is natural to users and that exploits the full potential of spoken and multimodal communication. Today’s users have high expectations and require a real-time engagement with highly relevant personalized content in a way comparable to human natural behaviour, and with the ability to adapt to a users' cognitive and emotional states. Many real-life interactive situations involve more than the exchange of information, decision making or problem solving; they involve a wide range of aspects related to feelings, emotions, social status, power, interpersonal relations, and the context. A comprehensive account of these aspects in computational models of multimodal interaction may form the foundation for a new generation of interactive social systems.
Over the past decade, a substantial amount of research has been devoted to the understanding of mechanisms governing multimodal social interaction. This special issue aims at presenting interdisciplinary research at the interface of artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive science, and human-computer interaction, focussing on the semantic and cognitive modelling of human social multimodal behaviour.
We invite contributions that deal with the modelling of human social behaviour and its interpretation. Topics range from multimodal behaviour recognition and social signals processing, analysis and annotation of multimodal interactive patterns, and semantic and pragmatic interpretation of multimodal interactive behaviour, to computational models of social cognition and multimodal dialogue.
