WOCCI 2017 – Workshop on Child Computer Interaction
Satellite event of ICMI' 2017, Glasgow, Scotland, November 13, 2017
The 6th Workshop on Child Computer Interaction (WOCCI 2017) will be held in Glasgow on Monday, November 13, 2017. This Workshop is an ISCA supported event and is a satellite event of the 19th ACM International Conference on Multi-modal Interaction (ICMI 2017), which will take place in the same city November 13-17, 2017. WOCCI 2017 will be held at the University of Glasgow's School of Computing Science building, room F-121. The WOCCI workshop is sponsored by ISCA's Special Interest Group on Child Computer Interaction, SIG-CHILD.
WOCCI aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry working in all aspects of child-machine interaction including computer, robotics and multi-modal interfaces. Children are special both at the acoustic/linguistic level but also at the interaction level. WOCCI provides a unique opportunity for bringing together different research communities from cognitive science, computer vision, robotics, speech processing, linguistics and application areas such as medical and education. Various state-of-the-art components can be presented here as key components for next generation child-centered computer interaction. Technological advances are increasingly necessary in a world where education and health pose growing challenges to the core well-being of our societies. Noticeable examples are remedial treatments for children with or without disabilities and individualised attention. The Workshop should serve as a venue for presenting recent advancements in core technologies as well as experimental systems and prototypes.
