Call: MUM 2020, 19th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia

Call for Papers

MUM 2020, the 19th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia
22-25 November 2020
Essen, Germany (see Note below)
http://www.mum-conf.org/2020/

IMPORTANT DATES:
Submissions: August 10th, 2020
Notifications: October 1st, 2020
Conference Dates: November 22nd-25th, 2020

NOTE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we are currently looking into different ways to hold MUM2020. The latest developments show that the German government is loosening the meeting and travel restrictions, and we are currently exploring the idea of running a hybrid conference allowing physical as well as virtual participation by November. The safety of all attendees is our primary concern, and we have to consider the situations in many other countries to guarantee inclusiveness. Thus, even if we decide to run a hybrid conference format, we will make sure to facilitate virtual participation for all of our tracks at MUM2020. In any case, all submissions will follow the usual review and publication process.… read more. “Call: MUM 2020, 19th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia”

(Virtual) Workshop – Challenges of Agent Identity in Multimodal Communication
To be held in conjunction with the 22nd ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction
25 October 2020
To be held remotely due to COVID-19

Submission deadline: 21 August 2020

NOTE: This workshop is co-located with the 2020 ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2020).

We will publish the papers of the workshop regardless on the workshop format (in Utrecht, or virtual) and will host a mixed or fully virtual set of discussions and panel.

Conversational agents that interact with users in everyday settings are becoming more commonplace, yet their identity has not yet been a key point of investigation.… read more. “Call: ICMI 2020 (Virtual) Workshop on Challenges of Agent Identity in Multimodal Communication”

Call: Phenomenology and Virtuality issue of Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology

Call for Papers

Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology
Special issue: Phenomenology and Virtuality
https://www.nisc.co.za/news/137/announcements-and-notices/call-for-papers-phenomenology-and-virtuality

Edited by Gregory Swer and Jean du Toit

Submissions due before: 24 August 2020

Our age is typified by technology (Kroes & Meijers, 2016: 12), but it is the question of the virtual that has particularly come to the forefront after the turn of the century. The contemporary era of emergent digital technologies has seen the multiplication of virtual spaces – our civilizations are indeed steeped in the virtual – which has resulted in complex changes to the dimensions of our existence and experience. While thinkers such as Baudrillard (in Simulacra and Simulation (1981)) emphasize a dichotomous relationship between reality and virtual reality, the enmeshed character of modern individuals within emergent virtual spaces may call into question the continuing relevance of such oppositions.

The term virtuality (a conflation of the words reality and virtual) may present a challenge to dichotomous views on reality and the virtual.… read more. “Call: Phenomenology and Virtuality issue of Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology”

Call: AI Fiction / Artificial Intelligence and Fiction Conference

Call for Papers

AI Fiction / Artificial Intelligence and Fiction
3 to 5 June 2021
Paris, France
https://cis.cnrs.fr/ia-fictions/

Submission deadline: 30 September 2020

This international conference, organized by the University Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle, in partnership with the Center for Internet and Society, will be held in Paris from 3 to 5 June 2021. A call for papers is open until 30 September 2020.

This is the first conference ever organized on the theme of artificial intelligence in fiction (literature, series, films, comics, video games): the focus will be on representations of AI and their meanings, as well as the creative uses of AI to produce and understand fiction.

A road trip entirely written by an artificial intelligence embedded in a car, Ross Goodwin’s 1 the road has joined at the start of the 2019 literary season a whole series of texts whose common point was to stage and act out a dream of automation and artificialization of literary language, whose genealogy goes back at least to the first automatic writings of Oulipo: artificial intelligence is no longer just a fiction but a tool for producing fiction.… read more. “Call: AI Fiction / Artificial Intelligence and Fiction Conference”

Call: ICMI 2020 Workshop on Action Modelling for Interaction and Analysis in Smart Sports and Physical Education

Call for Papers

1st Workshop on Action Modelling for Interaction and Analysis in Smart Sports and Physical Education (MAIStroPE)
To be held in conjunction with the 22nd ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction
Workshop website: http://smart-sports-exercises.nl/maistrope/

Paper submission deadline: 23 August 2020

[NOTE: See ACM ICMI 2020 website for information about conference format due to COVID-19 –ML]

The workshop to be held in conjunction with the 22nd ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction intends to bring together the research in Machine Learning, Interactive Technology and Sports & Movement Science to propose multimodal and interactive systems which can be utilized by coaches/trainers and players during their routine training sessions to analyse performance and provide real time interactive feedback.

Performance in sports depends on training programs designed by team staff, with a regime of physical, technical, tactical and perceptual-cognitive exercises. Depending on how participants perform, exercises are adapted, or the program may be redesigned.… read more. “Call: ICMI 2020 Workshop on Action Modelling for Interaction and Analysis in Smart Sports and Physical Education”

Call: Manipulation Online: Philosophical Perspectives on Human-Machine Interactions

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Manipulation Online: Philosophical Perspectives on Human-Machine Interactions
Edited volume & online workshop series

Deadline for abstract submission: August 24th 2020

EDITORS

Fleur Jongepier (Radboud University Nijmegen) & Michael Klenk (Delft University of Technology)

AIMS

We invite submissions of extended abstracts (700-1000 words) for an online workshop series and an open-access edited volume to be published with Routledge (or similar).

TOPIC

We increasingly interact with artificially intelligent machines like virtual assistants, robot care-takers, or algorithmic systems used for behavioural targeting. Such systems influence our (online) lives and the decisions we make in various ways. Recently, both the public and an increasing number of digital ethicists have raised concern about the distinctly manipulative nature of the influence of some digital technologies (e.g. Burr & Floridi 2020, Susser et al. 2019, Klenk 2020, Yeung 2016, Zarsky 2003). At the same time, the concept of manipulation has only very recently received sustained attention from moral and political philosophy (see e.g.… read more. “Call: Manipulation Online: Philosophical Perspectives on Human-Machine Interactions”

Call: DELbA 2020: Workshop on Designing and Facilitating Educational Location-based Applications

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

DELbA 2020: Workshop on Designing and Facilitating Educational Location-based Applications
Held online at EC-TEL 2020
(Heidelberg, Germany): Virtual workshop
September 15, 2020
https://www.delba2020.net

Submission deadline for full and short papers: July 15, 2020

The workshop on Designing and Facilitating Educational Location-based Applications (DELbA 2020) will be organized as part of the EC-TEL 2020 conference and will be held online on September 15th 2020.

Mobile devices and mobile internet are the prerequisites for location-based apps, which interpret the current location for providing position-sensitive information. In form of games, location-based apps are extremely popular. For example, 2013 Ingress generated a hype that was surpassed by 2016 Pokémon GO with an even larger player base. Other forms of location-based apps include AR browsers like Wikitude and digital tour apps like ARIS or PlayVisit. From a didactical perspective, location-based apps have a number of characteristics that make their use as learning tools very appealing: location-based apps guide learners to real objects on location and supplement these objects with information to be learned.… read more. “Call: DELbA 2020: Workshop on Designing and Facilitating Educational Location-based Applications”
