*Workshop description* This workshop is looking for works describing how interactive, multimodal technology such as virtual agents can be used in social skills training for measuring and training social-affective interactions. Sensing technology now enables analyzing user’s behaviors and physiological signals (heart-rate, EEG, etc). Various signal processing and machine learning methods can be used for such prediction tasks. Beyond sensing, it is also important to analyze human behaviors and model and implement training methods (e.g. by virtual agents, social robots, relevant scenarios, design appropriate and personalized feedback about social skills performance). Such social signal processing and tools can be applied to measure and reduce social stress in everyday situations, including public speaking at schools and workplaces. Target populations include depression, Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), Schizophrenia, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), but also a much larger group of different social pathological phenomena. In this workshop, we invite participants from academia, industry or clinical settings to present and discuss social-affective design of multimodal training for health.
*Call for papers* The following keywords describe the topics of the workshop. - Cognitive behavioral therapy - Motivational interview - Social skills training Social signal processing, Affective computing, Physiological signal processing, Virtual agents, Social robotics All accepted workshop papers will be printed in an adjunct proceedings of ICMI. The workshop organizers will oversee the review process for their workshops. In order to allow a multidisciplinary setup, it will be possible to accept short paper (7 pages + references) and abstracts (5 page + references). We believe this will enable us to have participation from disciplines who do not submit full papers to conferences or workshops.
*Submission* Easychair to handle the papers. https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=samih2021 <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=samih2021>
*Important dates* Workshop papers or abstract due: August 8, 2021 Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2020 Camera-ready paper: October 14, 2021 Workshop date: October 18 or 22 (TBD)
*Organizers* Hiroki Tanaka (Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan) Satoshi Nakamura (Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan) Jean-Claude Martin (CNRS-LIMSI, France) Catherine Pelachaud (CNRS-ISIR, Sorbonne University, France)
