Just a quick note, I’ll be doing an update on the workshop later on the week (i.e. after I recover from my upcoming jetlag which I’m hestiantly waiting for as I board my flight home). In the meantime check out the following workshop on augmented social interaction.
Workshop at ACII 2011
Augmenting Social Interaction through Affective Computing is the first workshop on affective computing that specifically aims to improve or enhance social interaction among humans. Social interactions, whether mediated or face-to-face, can benefit significantly from advances in affective computing and social signal processing. Example application areas include mental healthcare, training and coaching, negotiation, and close intimate interactions. To address this topic, we invite submissions on the relation between social interaction between humans and affective computing technologies.
