CALL FOR PAPERS
*********************************************
HUBIC 2016 – HUMAN BEHAVIOUR, INTERACTION AND COMMUNICATION
www.hubic-lab.eu/hubic2016-pci/
Special Session organized in the context of the
20th Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics (PCI) with International Participation
Patras, Greece
November 10th – 12th, 2016
*********************************************

 

HuBIC 2016 focuses on the interplay of the different modalities involved in human behavior when interacting with physical objects, technology and other people. This wide, interdisciplinary field spans from capturing and analysis to modeling and generation of embodied behavior in the context of communication, learning or entertainment.

The HuBIC 2016 special session invites for leading-edge research and experimentation in topics ranging from Human-Computer Interaction to Human Social Behavior. HuBIC 2016 provides the opportunity to present and discuss the state-of-the-art in capturing, analyzing, modelling and generating multimodal behavior signals, including signals conveying information from face and body motion, eye-tracking, speech, audio and video, biosensors and more, as well as their fusion and fission and their exploitation in modeling the human communicative behavior as well as building systems and interfaces for advanced, believable, natural, human-like interaction.

TOPICS
-------------------------------------

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Human computer interaction as well as human-robot and innovative interaction techniques

- Affective and human-cantered pervasive computing

- Multimodal interaction and multimodal communicative and social behaviours; study and modelling the human communicative behaviour, multiparty interactions, dialogue analysis and modelling etc.

- Affective dialogues with artificial embodied systems; humanoid robots, virtual agents, avatars, artificial human-like characters etc.

- Capture, analysis and generation of multimodal and multisensory data to imitate human verbal and bodily behaviours

- Learning and reading comprehension; adaptive learning, physiological data capturing and cognitive correlates, learning analytics

- Speech interaction and communication; expressive, multimodal and audio-visual speech synthesis

- Sign Language Processing; modelling, recognition and generation
