Call for Tutorials

The organizing committee of Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII) 2023 invites proposals for tutorial. ACII is the

annual Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Affective Computing (AAAC) which is the premier international forum for research on affective, physiological, and multimodal human-computer/robot/machine interaction and systems. ACII 2023 will

be held in person at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, the birthplace of affective computing, between 10-13 September 2023.

The theme of ACII 2023 is “Affective Computing: Context and Multimodality”. Fully understanding, predicting, and generating

affective processes undoubtedly requires the careful integration of multiple contextual factors (e.g., gender, personality, relationships, goals, environment, situation, and culture), information modalities (e.g., audio, images, text, touch, and smells) and evaluation in ecological environments. We welcome tutorial proposals which cover topics related to the ACII 2023 theme in introductory or advanced levels to complement the conference’s program. Particularly of interest are tutorials on tools that provide integrated capabilities across multiple modalities, on advanced topics in multimodal machine learning, and on user experience methods for contextualized/multimodal system testing.

In general, tutorials may introduce an uprising issue to the related research discussed at previous ACIIs, or reflect an overview of an

important, but already established topic, both presented in an illustrative fashion. For this, we expect that the tutors focus on the

state-of-the-art or the main ideas of the proposed topic rather than primarily on the presenters’ own research interests. The tutorials can be organised as either half-day (preferred) or full-day events and will take place at the same venue as the main conference. The

proposals will be evaluated based on the impact, quality, interdisciplinary character, presentation format as well as the theme

and relevance to the conference.
