Call: Cognitive, Affective, and Conversational HCI – AMCIS 2020 mini-track

Call for Papers

Cognitive, Affective, and Conversational HCI
Mini-track at the Americas Conference on Information System (AMCIS) 2020
Track: Human-Computer Interaction (SIGHCI)
Salt Lake City, Utah
August 13-15, 2020

Deadline for paper submissions: February 28, 2020

Understanding and adapting to the cognitive and affective states of users can enable systems to interact more effectively, and creates new possibilities for information systems. Emerging systems are able to incorporate information from these sensors to create more humanlike responses, to improve decision processes, and to gain a deeper understanding of how the user is thinking or feeling.

The cross-disciplinary nature of the IS discipline and its unique ability to view technology in novel ways gives it strong potential to make big waves in this domain. We encourage full paper and research-in-progress submissions ranging from exploratory to confirmatory work. All methods of research are welcome, including design science, qualitative, empirical, and theoretical research. Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Affective or cognitive state detection
  • Conversational technology and interactions
  • Conversational AI systems as coworkers or collaborators
  • HCI for credibility assessment
  • Novel use of biometric and behavioral sensors, including fMRI, eye tracking, heart rate, keystroke dynamics, and mouse tracking
  • Affective computing
  • Classification or prediction of affective or cognitive state
  • Visualization for affective and cognitive data
  • Barriers to effective user experience
  • Mobile factors

We encourage authors to not be limited by this list, but to seek to submit research that describes or demonstrates innovative potential for cognitive and affective information systems.
