Call: Participants needed for remote study in VR

Participants needed (a remote study in VR)

Researchers at the University of Manchester, the BBC R&D, and the University of Glasgow are recruiting participants to partake in a study that aims to understand how viewers engage with novel media content.

The study will take less than 60 minutes. No face-to-face contact is required. The study will take place over Zoom video conferencing software (https://zoom.us).

To participate, you will need to have an HTC Vive VR head-mounted display (HMD), a Vive controller and a second device (e.g. another laptop, or a smartphone) to run Zoom.

A researcher will guide you throughout the study. You will watch six snippets of a nature documentary TV show (36 seconds each) on your VR HMD and orally rate questionnaire items after each clip. There will be a recorded semi-structured interview after the final clip.… read more. “Call: Participants needed for remote study in VR”

Call: “Advances in Tangible and Embodied Interaction for VR and AR” issue of Electronics

[Important note: I usually avoid posting Calls for Papers that involve the requirement that authors pay a fee for submission and/or publication but do so when the topic is particularly relevant to the presence community. In these cases, as with the Call below, I add an explicit note near the top of the post specifying the fee. For more information about these fees, see AJE Scholar’s “Understanding Submission and Publication Fees” and Wikipedia’s entry on Article Processing Charges. –Matthew]

Call: Memory: 1st Global Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Call for Papers

Memory
1st Global Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
Saturday 23rd October – Sunday 24th October 2021
Online: ShockLogic Platform
https://www.progressiveconnexions.net/interdisciplinary-projects/making-sense-of/memory/conferences/

Submission deadline: 3rd September 2021

Our memories shape us: our beliefs, our actions, our selves. A memory that we share with others can be a call to action or a way of formulating our identities. But memories are fallible, and the more people who are involved in a memory, the more room there is for debate about its meaning.

The fallibility of memory is important in court cases, memoir-writing, and other situations involving testimony. And the extreme memory-loss caused by conditions such as Alzheimer’s robs people of an important aspect of their identity.

We remember episodes in our lives, and semantic knowledge such as ‘Paris is the capital of France’, but even when these recollections fade, we might still remember the procedural knowledge of how to tie a shoelace or play the flute.… read more. “Call: Memory: 1st Global Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference”

Call: Third Workshop on Knowledge-aware and Conversational Recommender Systems (KaRS 2021)

Call for Papers

Third Workshop on Knowledge-aware and Conversational Recommender Systems (KaRS 2021)
September 27th – October 1st, 2021
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
https://kars-workshop.github.io/2021/
http://sisinflab.poliba.it/kars/2021/

Extended Submission deadline: August 12, 2021

SCOPE

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the Third Workshop on Knowledge-aware and Conversational Recommender Systems held in conjunction with the ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2021) Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from September the 27th to October the 1st, 2021.

In the last few years, a renewed interest of the research community on conversational recommender systems (CRSs) is emerging. This is probably due to the great diffusion of Digital Assistants (DAs) such as Amazon Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant that are revolutionizing the way users interact with machines. DAs allow users to execute a wide range of actions through an interaction mostly based on natural language messages.… read more. “Call: Third Workshop on Knowledge-aware and Conversational Recommender Systems (KaRS 2021)”

Call: ANIMATAS Symposium on “Human-Machine Interaction. Perception, Social Learning, Personalised Adaptation in Educational Settings”

Call for Papers

ANIMATAS Symposium on ‘Human-Machine Interaction. Perception, Social Learning, Personalised Adaptation in Educational Settings’
October 12-14, 2021
Virtual event

Symposium Website: https://sites.google.com/view/animatas-symposium
ANIMATAS Website: https://www.animatas.eu

Submission Deadline: 16th of August 2021

OVERVIEW:

As emerging technologies continue to grow in complexity and availability, the question of how to successfully integrate such technologies into our society is attracting growing research interest. Social robots, virtual agents, and (explainable) artificial intelligence models are increasingly being implemented in healthcare systems, in entertainment or retail, or in educational settings as a means to reduce burden on human workers and maximise user experience.

Education is a particularly relevant context for the implementation of advanced robotic, virtual, or AI systems. Teachers around the world suffer from overcrowded classrooms, limited resources, and diverse student needs. These challenges are being especially highlighted in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.… read more. “Call: ANIMATAS Symposium on “Human-Machine Interaction.

Call: “Life and Death Moral Dilemmas in VR” Study

Call for Participants

“Life and Death Moral Dilemmas in VR” Study

The Virginia Philosophy Reality Lab (VPRL) at Old Dominion University is asking for participants in a research study on moral decision-making in virtual reality settings. Prospective participants must be 18+ years of age and have access to an Oculus headset. Participants will fill out a brief informed consent form and questionnaire before downloading the virtual reality experience that tests responses to virtual life-and-death scenarios.

To participate in the study, please visit our website and follow the instructions:
http://www.vprl.org/VPRL_Life_Death_Dilemmas.html

Please consider sharing this link with non-philosopher students and colleagues, as we would like to get as diverse of a sample as possible. Data collected from responses to these scenarios will inform new behavioral and social models of moral decision making. These contributions can also help improve decision making modeling for diverse applications from self-driving cars to robotics and AI networks.… read more. “Call: “Life and Death Moral Dilemmas in VR” Study”

Call: The manifold senses of presence – Hybrid workshop

Call for Abstracts

Workshop: The manifold senses of presence
Heidelberg, Germany and Online
October 19, 2021

Submission deadline: July 28, 2021

At the latest since our everyday life was and partly still is dominated by social distance, it has become clear what role the phenomenon of “presence” plays for our lifeworld. Strictly speaking, it is the increasing lack of presence that has become conspicuous and that can be attributed not only to the special circumstances of the pandemic, but also to an increasing medialization, virtualization and acceleration of the lifeworld. Yet, what actually characterizes presence is not so easy to grasp. Sometimes it is understood to mean the quality of something that is particularly salient in perception, or the impression that something feels authentic or “real”; finally, a particular intensity of interaction can also be assigned to the term of presence.… read more. “Call: The manifold senses of presence – Hybrid workshop”
