The role of emotion in HCI is becoming ever more relevant and challenging. HCI for affective systems embraces theories from a wide range of domains and disciplines such as psychology and sociology, robotics, computer science or design. It is relevant to a diverse set of application areas, from teaching and learning to office applications, entertainment technology, therapeutic applications, through to advertising and product design. Continual areas of interest within research include the recognition as well as synthesis of affect and emotion in the face, body, and speech, and the influence of emotion on human information processing and decision-making, interaction metaphors, design aspects, and many more. Throughout this wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary research there are common obstacles each of us face in our work, particularly when bringing affect out of the laboratory and into the real world.
Being the 5th workshop in this series, this year?s workshop will focus on the development of affective technologies for real-world applications and the issues that this orientation brings to our research.
* What are the real world challenges in affective computing and how can we address them?
* How can we sense and model affect, and what impact does sensing methodology and models used have on our methods?
* Can one -in the real world- sensibly differentiate between emotional and non-emotional behavior, and if so how?
* What relationship is there to other concepts such as motivation and engagement?
* What application areas make ideal research settings for exploring affective technologies in the real world?
* How can we measure and evaluate the success of affective interactions?
* What levels of social acceptance exist within society or specific communities towards affective systems?
* How might social acceptance attitudes impact on the design of affective technologies?
* What are the opportunities, risks and ethics entailed in developing affective systems? In particular, how should these risks and ethical concerns be addressed by the research community?
