The integration of cognitive theories, knowledge representation models and algorithms in a computational framework will enable rich models of human-machine interaction, and the development of novel machine learning techniques for the analysis of socially situated multimodal human communication streams. The successful analysis, modelling, and understanding of context effects on social interactions will be of high relevance for ICT applications where human-machine communication is particularly emphasized.
In order to enable the development of computational paradigms for implementing socially believable, emotionally adaptive, and context-aware systems (BEINGS) able to enhance quality of life in society, expertise in different yet complementary scientific fields must be accounted for. A holistic scientific approach, cross-cultural collaborations and exchanges are required. To this aim, this track is promoting contributions across a spectrum of disciplines reporting on experimental data , theories, and mathematical models of dynamics of signal exchanges (in terms of shared meanings, emotional states, cultural differences, and cognitive processes of cooperation, and decision making). The ultimate goal is to equip machines with human level automaton intelligence.
