Affective computing deals with analyzing the affect using different modalities. Computer vision undoubtedly is one of the primary modalities in affective computing. Given the recent advancement in computer vision areas such as face and facial parts detection, body parts detection and scene analysis, it has opened up avenues for analyzing the affective state of subjects and the affect conveyed by scenes. This workshop invites researchers to submit their original work proposing methods inferring affect using computer vision. 

New! Best papers will be invited for an extended version in a special issue [details coming soon].

Scope of the papers:
  • Image and Video based facial expression analysis
  • Emotion recognition in the wild
  • Pose estimation for affect analysis
  • Scene recognition for affect analysis
  • Gesture recognition for affect analysis
  • Gaze and attention for affect analysis
  • Saliency detection for affect analysis
  • Activity recognition for affect analysis
  • Fiducial points detection
  • Temporal models for face analysis
  • Spontaneous affect databases
  • Arts and media
  • Applications in entertainment, healthcare and games
