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.

The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Cross-cultural processing of social signals
  • Linguistic and social interactional exchanges
  • Social Robotics: analysis and applications
  • Human behaviour: Analysis and understanding
  • Linguistic sentiment analysis
  • Changes in sentiment expressions
  • Cognitive Economy
  • Group behaviour, group cognition and cultural specificity
  • Influence of context on perception, memory and decision making
  • Cognitive systems for multimodal signal analysis
  • Nonlinear processing of audio-video social signals
  • Multimodal social signal processing
  • New datasets and forms of data that can push the research in the field
  • Predictive bias analysis
  • Adaptation and adaptive algorithms
  • Emotions: analyses, detection, recognition
  • Assistive technologies and user’s acceptance
  • Age, gender, and personality traits’ effects
