Paper Submission Deadline: December 21st, 2022

In this workshop, we aim to bring together researchers looking into multimodal interactions between children and artificial agents to discuss research problems that center around interactivity and go beyond just processing child speech. We are interested in discussing approaches to collecting and annotating datasets involving child speech, intent classification in child speech, designing dialogue flow with artificial agents that primarily interact with children, as well as repair strategies, active listening behavior, and other aspects of dialogue modeling. Moreover, multiparty conversations involving several children, children, and their adult caregivers or several artificial agents are of particular interest to this workshop.… read more. “Call: Workshop on Language-Based AI Agent Interaction with Children at IWSDS 2023”

Call: “Visual War Journalism in a Digital Age” special issue of Digital Journalism

Call for Papers

“Visual War Journalism in a Digital Age”
Special issue of Digital Journalism
Special issue Editor: Stuart Allan, Cardiff University, UK
https://think.taylorandfrancis.com/special_issues/digital-journalism-visual-war/

Abstract deadline: December 1, 2022
Manuscript deadline: April 17, 2023

The ongoing crisis engendered by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has recast anew longstanding concerns about the relative strengths and limitations of war and conflict reporting. Journalists are risking their lives to bear witness in often harrowing circumstances – some finding themselves deliberately targeted by the Russian military – on behalf of their distant readers, listeners or viewers. Intent on crafting compelling narratives, many are actively refashioning conventional approaches to digital reportage in order to better engage and focus public attention on the plight of those whose lives are caught-up in this catastrophe.

Just as familiar conceptions of visual journalism are undergoing reappraisal, more traditional understandings of war correspondence appear increasingly open to experimentation and innovation, particularly across social media sites and apps.… read more. “Call: “Visual War Journalism in a Digital Age” special issue of Digital Journalism”

Call: Party! The 19th Annual Tampere University Game Research Lab Spring Seminar

Call for Papers

Party! The 19th Annual Tampere University Game Research Lab Spring Seminar
May 4-5, 2023
Tampere University, Finland
Free of charge
https://springseminar.org/

Deadline for abstracts: 20 January 2023

As part of its 20th Anniversary festivities, Tampere University Game Research Lab invites scholars to an international seminar exploring the diverse connections between parties/partying and games/play.

Various age-old rituals, ceremonies and celebrations can be understood as play, or at least to include aspects of play. Today important life events like weddings or memorial services are organized in virtual game spaces, and many kinds of festivals, carnivals, and fiestas are routinely participated and followed via live streams. Less prestigiously, activities such as ‘pregaming’, house parties, and afterparties can also be understood as/through play – or as scaffoldings for playfulness.

Previous research shows how party games are among genres that have often been overlooked by game scholars (Coavoux, Boutet & Zabban 2017).… read more. “Call: Party! The 19th Annual Tampere University Game Research Lab Spring Seminar”
