Special Session at Interspeech 2019
Research devoted to understanding the relationship between verbal and nonverbal communication modes, and investigating the perceptual and cognitive processes involved in the coding/decoding of emotional states is particularly relevant in the fields of Human-Human and Human-Computer Interaction.
When it comes to speech, it is unmistakable that the same linguistic expression may be uttered for teasing, challenging, stressing, supporting, inquiring, answering or as expressing an authentic doubt. The appropriate continuance of the interaction depends on detecting the addresser’s mood.
To progress towards a better understanding of such interactional facets, more accurate solutions are needed for defining emotional and empathic contents underpinning daily interactional exchanges, developing signal processing algorithms able to capture emotional features from multimodal social signals and building mathematical models integrating emotional behaviour in interaction strategies.
The themes of this special session are multidisciplinary in nature and closely connected in their final aims to identify features from realistic dynamics of emotional speech exchanges. Of particular interest are analyses of visual, textual and audio information and corresponding computational efforts to automatically detect and interpret their semantic and pragmatic contents.
A special issue of the Journal Computer Speech and Language is foreseen as an outcome of this special session.
