The 1st Workshop on Applied Multimodal Affect Recognition (AMAR 2020)

Held in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Automatic
Face and Gesture Recognition (FG) 2020


AMAR gathers researchers working in the areas of affective computing,
human-computer interaction, brain-computer interfaces, mental and
digital health, behavioral sciences, cybersecurity, and other
disciplines which have or can leverage automated emotion recognition
through the fusion of multiple modalities. This workshop will discuss
various ubiquitous sensing devices (e.g., brain, face, thermal,
physiological, environmental, positional, etc.) to decode emotions in
ways relevant to specific applications and domains. This workshop aims
to expose current use cases for affective computing and emerging
applications of affective computing to spark future work.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    Health applications with a focus on multimodal affect

    Multimodal affective computing for cybersecurity applications
    (e.g., biometrics and IoT security)

    Inter-correlations and fusion of ubiquitous multimodal data as it
    relates to applied emotion recognition (e.g. face and EEG data)

    Leveraging ubiquitous devices to create reliable multimodal
    applications for emotion recognition

    Applications of in-the-wild data vs. lab controlled

    Facilitation and collection of multimodal data (e.g. ubiquitous
    data) for applied emotion recognition

    Engineering applications of multimodal affect (e.g., robotics,
    social engineering, domain inspired hardware / sensing
    technologies, etc.)
