Paper Submission

Please note that paper submission template has been updated! All authors should submit papers for review in a single column format instead of the previous two-column format. Full papers (14 pages + references), short papers (7 pages + references) and poster abstracts (5 pages + references) are invited for submission. Please see Call for Papers for further details.

Call for Late-breaking Papers!

We are soliciting submissions for Late-Breaking Papers aligned with the main themes of the workshop. We will consider papers not originally accepted to the main ICMI conference provided that the authors submit their reviews and a brief explanation as to any subsequent improvements to their work. Submission deadline is August 15, 2021. Please see Call for Papers for further details.

Call for Papers

Did you miss the deadline for the workshop? Don't worry! We are soliciting submissions for Late-Breaking Papers aligned with the main themes of the workshop. We will consider papers not originally accepted to the main ICMI conference provided that the authors submit their reviews and a brief explanation as to any subsequent improvements to their work.

The Socially-Informed AI for Healthcare will be a cross-disciplinary workshop combining expertise in psychology, biostatistics and health informatics, artificial intelligence and robotics and experience in the perception and production of nonverbal behaviours particularly using vision, speech and other sensory information (e.g., wearables).

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Analysis and synthesis of multimodal nonverbal cues, including facial expressions, paralinguistics, eye gaze and head movements, body postures and hand gestures, audio (e.g., turn taking, vocal outbursts, etc.) within an interaction context,
  • Co-modelling of nonverbal and verbal cues,
  • Cross-modality learning for the analysis and synthesis of nonverbal cues,
  • Novel methodologies for modelling long-term interactions through multiple modalities,
  • Modelling of interpersonal coordination such as convergence, synchrony or mimicry,
  • Personalisation and adaptation mechanisms for healthcare applications,
  • Automatic detection of non-conforming patterns and/or violations in social norms and expectations (expectancy violations theory) in nonverbal interaction,
  • Clinical applications (e.g., autism, depression, anxiety, etc.), including defining appropriate qualitative and quantitative evaluation methods,
  • Privacy preserving approaches to data collection or synthetic data generation,
  • Novel technological devices or robotics platforms specifically for healthcare applications,
  • Explainable AI techniques focused towards clinical applications.
  • The paper submission deadline is on June 18, 2021 June 27, 2021. Papers should be submitted via Easychair. Submissions should follow the new ACM ICMI single column template, and be submitted as .pdf files. The review process will be double blind, and therefore the papers should be appropriately anonymized.

    The paper submission deadline for last-minute papers is on August 15, 2021. Papers should be submitted via Easychair. Submissions should follow the new ACM ICMI single column template, and be submitted as .pdf files. The review process will be double blind, and therefore the papers should be appropriately anonymized. Key dates can be found below:

    We welcome research papers in the following one column formats:

  • Workshop Full Paper = 14 Page Limit + extra pages for references only with optional auxiliary material (zipped) & thumbnail image,
  • Workshop Short Paper = 7 Page Limit + extra pages for references only with optional auxiliary material (zipped) & thumbnail image.
  • Workshop Poster Abstract = 5 Page Limit + extra pages for references only with optional auxiliary material (zipped) & thumbnail image
  • For papers specifically focusing on the generation of nonverbal cues and the evaluation of the generated cues, we also encourage authors to consider submitting to the GENEA workshop simutaneously taking place at ACM ICMI’21.
