Call for Workshop Proposals

Note: Please find the accepted Workshops listed here.

The organizing committee of Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII) 2024 is now inviting proposals for workshops and challenges. ACII is the flagship conference for research in Affective Computing, covering topics related to the study of intelligent systems that perceive, express, or otherwise use affect.

Workshops at ACII provide opportunities for researchers to get together to connect and exchange ideas on a specific topic in detail. Examples of past workshops include Social and Affective Intelligence, Addressing Context in Affective Computing, Affective Human-Robot Interaction, Emotion Physiology and Experience, Affective Computing for Mental Well-being, or Moral Imagination in Affective Computing. Example workshops from the previous years are available here: https://acii-conf.net/2023/program/workshops/

We encourage workshop proposals that draw together interdisciplinary perspectives on topics in affective computing. We also welcome Challenge-led workshops, where workshop participants would work on a shared task. This year, in line with our theme, Human and Beyond, we particularly welcome workshops on topics spanning affect beyond humans (e.g., animals, robots).  

Workshop organizers will be responsible for soliciting and reviewing papers and putting together an exciting schedule, including time for networking and discussion. 

Papers accepted by workshops will be published in the conference’s adjunct proceedings.
