8th Workshop on emotion awareness for pervasive computing
beyond traditional approaches
In conjunction with 2024 IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2024), in Biarritz, France, March 11-15, 2024.
An important goal of pervasive computing is to integrate computer devices into the users’ everyday life seamlessly. This allows context-aware applications to gather information about the users to support them in their daily tasks. A newly attractive source of information for pervasive computing is provided by mobile devices, wearable devices, and pervasive sensors able to detect the emotional state of the users. In many real-world scenarios, it is essential to use wearable sensors, embedded in mobile devices such as smartphones and smartwatches, to measure the emotional state of the user. This would help to understand how emotions influence processes such as decision making and reasoning. However, emotion recognition remains to be a complex and challenging task mainly regarding the following aspects: sensing modalities, data analysis, and its application in real life.
While there have been, many contributions targeting some of these challenges, there are still unsolved problems. The workshop will explore the challenges of the sensing, modelling, and recognizing of emotions by using embedded sensors in smartphones, in wearable devices, and pervasive sensors (e.g. RF sensors) for pervasive computing. We aim to have unique contributions addressing these challenges and to provide a discussion space to facilitate collaboration among researchers interested in emotion recognition for pervasive computing.
Please notice, that each accepted paper needs one full registration at PerCom. Further, the paper has to be presented by one author. Like in the previous years, there will be an artifact track on PerCom. Therefore, the Artifact chairs will invite authors of all the accepted workshop papers to get their code and data validated in an artifact evaluation process. Authors who choose to participate can provide supplementary materials as artifacts (tools, applications, data sets, etc.) that will be reviewed solely for functional completeness (e.g., does provided code compile and run as expected?; do experimental results match expected results?, etc.). Participating authors will be allotted two additional pages in a separate Artifacts section of the proceedings to describe the nature and contents of the artifact package. Submission of artifacts packages will have no bearing on paper acceptance or publication. However, papers that have verified artifacts or data will be associated with badges in the conference program and proceedings. Two badges will be available: Artifact-Certified and Result-Certified. Upon submission, participating authors should indicate which badge(s) the committee should consider for the submission. Artifacts of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
