First Workshop on Expressive Encounters at ECCV 2024 Call for Papers

First Workshop on Expressive Encounters at ECCV 2024

We are thrilled to announce the First Workshop on Expressive
Encounters, to be held on the 29th of September at the European
Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV). This workshop aims to delve into
the cutting-edge developments in the integration of virtual embodied
agents and robots into our daily lives, exploring their roles as
receptionists, home assistants, personal trainers, and much more.

Our workshop focuses on designing these agents to be not only
functionally complex and useful but also understandable and socially
appropriate. Drawing inspiration from human-human interactions, we
seek to develop generative models and evaluation methods for socially
appropriate non-verbal behaviours, taking into account cultural and
personal factors.

Key Workshop Dates:

    Submission Deadline: 19th July

    Notification of Acceptance: 9th August

    Workshop: 29th September (AM)

Workshop Topics Include:

    Multimodal data processing for gesture generation

    Real-time gesture generation techniques

    Incorporating personal factors into gesture generation

    Transfer learning and transformer techniques for human-agent interactions

    Multimodal data modelling for detecting human trust and openness
    towards embodied agents

We invite researchers to submit their contributions and join us in
advancing the development of real-world applications involving virtual
embodied agents and robots. The workshop will feature invited talks
and provide a platform to exchange ideas with experts in academia and
industry and contribute to the future of human-agent interaction.

We look forward to your participation and contribution to the workshop!
