II. THEMES AND SCOPE OF THE SESSION
The themes of this special session are multidisciplinary in nature, and closely connected in their final aims to identify features from realistic dynamic of signal exchanges. Such dynamics characterize, formal and informal social signals, communication modes, hearing and vision processes, and brain functionalities. Of particular interest are analyses of visual, written and audio information and corresponding computational efforts to automatically detect and interpret their semantic and pragmatic contents. Related applications of these interdisciplinary facets are ICT interfaces able to detect health and affective states of their users, interpret their psychological and behavioral patterns and support them through positively designed interventions to improve their quality of life.

III. TOPICS
Topics include but are not limited to:
Signals for detecting affective wellbeing and emotional states
Detection of health and psychological states from multimodal signals
Social networks for information spread and share
Empathic ICT interfaces
Computational Architectures for Affective Systems
Supervised and Unsupervised Learning Algorithms in Affective Systems
Human and/or machine encoding and decoding of behavioral patterns
Human daily cognitive activities
More

VII. INVITED SPEAKERS
PROFESSOR Alessandro Vinciarelli, www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/vincia
Alessandro short bio: Alessandro Vinciarelli is with the University of Glasgow where he is Full professor at the School of Computing Science and Associate Academic at the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology. His main research interest is Social Signal Processing, the domain aimed at modelling analysis and synthesis of nonverbal behaviour in social interactions. In particular, Alessandro has investigated approaches for role recognition in multiparty conversations, automatic personality perception from speech, and conflict analysis and measurement in competitive discussions.
Talk Title: Body language without the body: social signal processing in technology mediated settings
Abstract: Humans are wired for face-to-face interaction because this was the only possible and available setting during the long evolutionary process that has led to Homo Sapiens. At the moment an increasingly significant fraction of our interactions take place in technology mediated settings, it is important to investigate how such a wiring - mainly corresponding to neural processes – reacts and adapts to them. This talk focuses in particular on how nonverbal communication - one of the main channels through which people convey socially and psychologically relevant information - plays a role in settings where natural nonverbal cues (facial expressions, vocalizations, gestures, etc.) are no longer available. Such an issue is important not only from a technological point of view (it can help to design interaction and communication technologies that better address human needs), but also from a societal one (it can help to understand major phenomena such as cyberbullyism and virality).
