-====== AfCAI 2019 Affective Computing and Context Awareness in Ambient Intelligence ======+====== 3rd Workshop on Affective Computing and Context Awareness in Ambient Intelligence (AfCAI 2019) ====== 
 +===== Date and Venue ===== 
 +Two day workshop will be held in Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena, Spain, on 11-12 November 2019. 
 +===== Description ===== 
 +The objective of the workshop is to bring together people interested in research on affective computing, ambient intelligence, and context aware systems. 
 +We assume a goal-oriented yet multidisciplinary research approach, including computer science, artificial intelligence, biomedical engineering, and experimental sciences. 
 +We consider both fundamental and applied research with participation of companies where possible. 
 +Furthermore, we focus at having working sessions dedicated to identifying opportunities for cooperation and joint project applications. 
 +===== Topics ===== 
 +The list of the topics include, but is not limited to: 
 +  * Affective Computing (AfC) 
 +  * Affective computer games 
 +  * Affective social networks 
 +  * Affect-based adaptation and personalization in intelligent systems 
 +  * Applications of AfC in Ambient intelligence, mobiles and wearables (AmI) 
 +  * Context aware systems: affect as context (CaS), affective data and social signals from wearable sensors  
 +  * Knowledge Representation for AfC, including semantic methids and ontology engineering 
 +  * Data mining and knowledge discovery methods for AfC and AmL 
 +  * Opinion Mining and Natural Language Processing for AfC 
 +  * Semantic computing and AfC 
 +  * Emotive user interfaces 
 +  * Gamification of AfC experiments 
 +  * Mixed (virtual/augmented) reality environments for affect generation and acquisition 
 +  * Models of emotion: computational, psychological, and philosophical 
 +  * Cognitive assistants,  affect- and context-aware conversational systems  
 +  * Smart cities applications of AfC 
 +  * Computational social sensing, AfC in social robotics, social cognitive assistants 
 +  * Behavioural analysis and conflict resolution 
 +  * Ground truth determination of emotion, mood and social signals
