    10th International Conference on Affective Computing & Intelligent
    Interaction (ACII 2022) https://acii-conf.net/2022/ October 18 - 21,
    2022, Nara, Japan or Virtual **********************************************************
    The Association for the Advancement of Affective Computing (AAAC)
    invites you to join us at our tenth International Conference on
    Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII), which will be
    held in Nara, Japan on October 18th - 21st, 2022.

    The Conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction
    is the premier international forum for interdisciplinary research on the
    design of systems that can recognize, interpret, and simulate human
    emotions and related affective phenomena.

    All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore
    (conditional to the approval by IEEE Computer Society) and indexed by
    EI. A selection of the best articles at ACII2021 will be invited to
    submit extended versions to IEEE’s Transactions on Affective Computing.

    The theme of ACII 2022 is “Affective computing for mental and physical well-being”. The current Covid-19 pandemic and resulting societal
    changes (such as social isolation and work-from-home arrangements) have severely impacted mental and physical well-being. Thus, ACII 2022
    especially welcomes submitted research that utilises Affective Computing
    to address these negative consequences on mental and physical well-being brought about by the current challenging circumstances.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Psychology & Cognition of Affect in Designing Computational Systems
    - Design for Mental and Physical Well-Being
    - Computational Models of Emotional Processes
    - Issues in Psychology & Cognition of Affect in Affective
    Computing Systems
    - Cultural Differences in Affective Design and Interaction

    Recognition and Synthesis of Human Affect from ALL Modalities
    - Modeling of Cognitive and Affective States related to Mental and
    Physical Well-Being

    - Recognition and Synthesis of Auditory Affect Bursts (Laughter,
    Cries, etc.)
    - Motion Capture for Affect Recognition
    - Affect Recognition from Alternative Modalities (Physiology, Brain
    Waves, etc.)
    - Affective Text Processing and Sentiment Analysis
    - Multimodal Data Fusion for Affect Recognition
    - Synthesis of Multimodal Affective Behavior

    Affective Interfaces
    - Interfaces for Monitoring and Improving Mental and Physical Well-Being
    - Design of Affective Loop and Affective Dialogue Systems
    - Human-Centred Human-Behaviour-Adaptive Interfaces
