Topics: emotion recognition cognitive computing artificial intelligence social robots
Emotion Recognition became a key scenario for Artificial Intelligence and Affective Computing, in particular human robot interaction, data mining systems, and social network analysis.
Various emotion-mining techniques can be exploited for creating and automating personalized interfaces or subcomponent technology for larger systems, i.e., in business intelligence, affective tutoring and e-learning, social robots, and recommender systems.
Different from sentiment analysis, this approach works at a deeper level of abstraction,
aiming at recognizing specific emotions and not only the positive/negative sentiment; in order to extract, manage and predict emotions in limited sets, based on novel models of emotions, or on well-accepted models.
The aim of the international workshop EMORE is to present, discuss and ideate new emotion recognition techniques in any AI-related task, bringing together researchers and practitioners for stimulating cooperation and cross-fertilization between different communities focused on research, development and applications of emotion recognition. Since the cooperation among disciplines, e.g., computer science, psychology, neurology, is of great interest and benefit for this research area, we particularly invite submissions with an interdisciplinary view and participation of authors. ACER-EMORE also welcomes papers on ongoing projects and PhD showcases, as well as applications, data sets, novel techniques, and multimodal or interdisciplinary approaches to emotion recognition.
The ACER-EMORE co-located workshop aims also to create a network of research
for future events and publications on Affective Computing, as already established in
the previous editions:
ACER-EMORE2020 @ICCSA Cagliari, Italy (online for covid)
ACER-EMORE2019@ICCSA Saint Petersburg, Russia;
EMORE2018@ICCSA Melbourne, Australia;
EMORE2017@ICCSA Trieste, Italy.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
May 31, 2021 Papers and Abstract submission deadline
June 24, 2021 Notification of Papers and Abstract acceptance
July 15, 2021 Final paper and abstract submission deadline
August 1, 2021 Paper registration deadline

The Brain Informatics (BI) conference series has established itself as the world's premier research forum on Brain Informatics, which is an emerging interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research field with joint efforts from neuroscience, cognitive science, medicine and life sciences, data science, artificial intelligence, neuroimaging technologies, and information and communication technologies.
The 14th International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI2021) provides a premier international forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative and practical development experiences on Brain Informatics research, brain-inspired technologies and brain/mental health applications.
The theme of BI2021 is: Innovative Computational Approaches for Understanding Brain Functions and Treat its Disorders.
Accepted full papers will be selected to publish in the Springer Open Access Brain Informatics Journal upon significant revision.
Workshop and Special Session full papers will be published at the same BI proceedings at the Springer-Nature LNAI Brain Informatics Book Series.
Organizers of Workshops and Special Sessions will be invited to prepare a book proposal based on the topics of the workshop/special session for possible book publication in the Springer-Nature Brain Informatics & Health Book Series.
High quality BI conference papers may be nominated to submit an extended version for a free fast track review and publication at the Brain Informatics Journal, an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary open-access journal published by Springer, and to the Open-Access Sensors journal fully or partially discounted fast track special issue "Multimodal Emotion Recognition in Artificial Intelligence".
The 14th edition of the Brain
Informatics international conference will be held in fully virtual mode
to grant participation despite the Covid-19 pandemics limitation, organized by
University of Padova, Italy.
