A2I: Affective Artificial Intelligence (ICPR 2024)

3 minutes


Full-day, Dec 2024, Kolkata


Introduction #

The workshop on Affective Artificial Intelligence (A2I) at ICPR 2024 aims to encourage and highlight state-of-the-art research in affective computing and applications. The key focuses are on novel neural network architectures, incorporating anatomical insights and constraints, introducing new and challenging datasets, and exploiting multi-modal training.

Call for Contributions #

Full Workshop Papers #

The workshop topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Large-scale data generation or Inexpensive annotation for Affective Computing
  • AI methods for Affective Computing with multimodal data
  • Multi-modal method for emotion recognition
  • Explainable and/or Privacy Preserving AI in affective computing
  • Generative and responsible personalization of affective phenomena estimators with few-shot learning
  • Bias in affective computing data (e.g. lack of multi-cultural datasets)
  • Semi-/weak-/un-/self- supervised learning methods, domain adaptation methods, and other novel methods for Affective Computing
  • Applications in education, entertainment & healthcare

We will be accepting the submission of full unpublished and original papers. These papers will be peer-reviewed via a single-blind process. The accepted papers in the workshops will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), Springer (https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs). Please note that it will be published after the workshop.

Submission #

We invite authors to submit unpublished papers (15 pages including references ICPR format) to our workshop, to be presented at an oral/poster session upon acceptance. All submissions will go through a single-blind review process. All contributions must be submitted (along with supplementary materials, if any) at the Microsoft CMT.

Note #

Authors of previously rejected main conference submissions are also welcome to submit their work to our workshop. When doing so, you must submit the previous reviewers’ comments (named as previous_reviews.pdf) and a letter of changes (named as letter_of_changes.pdf) as part of your supplementary materials to clearly demonstrate the changes made to address the comments made by previous reviewers.
