The AffCon workshop @ AAAI and the associated CL-Aff Shared Task on Happiness is an interdisciplinary workshop to explore multimodal affect in action. Besides the many novel research paper presentations and system papers reporting on the CL-Aff Shared Task Challenge, we have stellar, award-winning keynote speakers that we're super excited about hosting. They will stick around for a heart-to-heart panel discussion at the end of the workshop, which was really fun last year.
Do sign up for our workshop on Jan 27, 2019. Spread the word, and bring your friends!
