4th Workshop on emotion awareness for pervasive computing
with mobile and wearable devices
In conjunction with 2020 IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2020), March 23-27, 2020, in Austin, Texas, USA.
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 proposed 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.
