STHENOS Affective Computing for Biological Activity Recognition in Assistive Environments Workshop

http://petrae.org

Theme and Goals

The goal of the STHENOS Workshop on Affective Computing for Biological Activity Recognition in Assistive Environments is to present the research within the framework of the STHENOS project (www.sthenos.gr), which aims at the development of methodologies and systems for assistive environments. The research within the project aims at the development of methodologies and tools to compose pervasive human-centered systems, which will be able to understand the human state (identity, emotions and behavior) in assistive environments using audiovisual and biological signals.

List of Topics 
For this workshop on Affective Computing for Biological Activity Recognition in Assistive Environments, we seek contributions about the following topics:

  • Tools to recognize human behaviors from audio-visual content using fusion of non-invasive sensors such as visual or audio.
  • Tools to identify affect and emotion from audio-visual data in a non-invasive way.
  • Tools to analyze neurophysiological data (EEG, ECG, SCR) in order to recognize emotional states and to perform follow-up studies.
  • Tools for dynamic multimodal human-machine interaction. Further to that,,visual attention mechanisms will be investigated and correlated to social behavior
