Call: “Trust, Acceptance and Social Cues in Human Robot Interaction” issue of Paladyn, Journal of Behavioral Robotics

Call for Papers

Trust, Acceptance and Social Cues in Human Robot Interaction
Special issue in Paladyn, Journal of Behavioral Robotics

Deadline for submissions: 28 February 2021

DESCRIPTION

This special issue in Paladyn, Journal of Behavioral Robotics is based on the “Trust, Acceptance and Social Cues in Human Robot Interaction – SCRITA 2020” third edition Workshop held at the 29th IEEE International Conference on Robot & Human Interactive Communication (RO-MAN).

The special issue focuses on investigating users’ trust in robots. Although the previous editions had the pleasure to welcome the participation of leading researchers in the field, and several exceptional invited speakers, who identified some principal points in this research direction, current research still presents several limitations. For this reason, we continue to further explore the role of trust in social robotics to effectively support the design and development of socially acceptable and trustable service robots.… read more. “Call: “Trust, Acceptance and Social Cues in Human Robot Interaction” issue of Paladyn, Journal of Behavioral Robotics”

INTRODUCTION

In today’s globalized, transnational and digitalized media environment, popular culture plays a significant role in the establishment and (re)negotiation of place identities and the ways in which people relate to physical locations. Traveling to film locations, participating in fan re-enactments or visiting theme parks are some of the varied and multifaceted ways in which the ties between people’s worlds of imagination and the real worlds they inhabit are made tangible through place.

This conference highlights the interconnections between media, tourism and place and aims to bring together the diverse perspectives, approaches and actors involved in this process while focusing on critical issues accompanying this multifaceted phenomenon.… read more. “Call: “Worlds of Imagination: Media, Place and Tourism in Today’s Global World” Conference”

Call: CUI 2021- 3rd International Conference on Conversational User Interfaces

Call for Papers

CUI 2021 – 3rd International Conference on Conversational User Interfaces
Hybrid Event (online and on site at Bilbao, Spain)
27-29 July 2021
https://www.conversationaluserinterfaces.org/2021/
@CUI_Conference

Full paper submission deadline: February 12, 2021

There has been an increasing interest in language-based interactions with technology. Driven by the commercial success of intelligent personal assistant devices such as Alexa and Google Home, the number of natural language and conversation-based interactions is growing in commercial settings. Following the successful inaugural ACM In-Cooperation conference in 2019 and the virtual conference in 2020, CUI 2021 aims to further develop a collaborative community around human-computer interaction issues in speech and language technology, with a specific interest in theory-based and applied scientific issues in the field of speech and text-based conversational user interfaces. Thus CUI 2021 further looks to bring together relevant communities (e.g. ISCA, ACM SIGCHI, CogSci) to publish, disseminate and showcase high-quality cutting-edge research related to the field, promote insight and debate in this interesting and important discipline within language interfaces.… read more. “Call: CUI 2021- 3rd International Conference on Conversational User Interfaces”

Call: “Advances in Human-Centred Dementia Technology” issue of Intl. J. of Human-Computer Studies

Call for Papers

Special Issue on Advances in Human-Centred Dementia Technology
International Journal of Human-Computer Studies (IJHCS)
https://www.journals.elsevier.com/international-journal-of-human-computer-studies/call-for-papers/special-issue-on-advances-in-human-centred-dementia-technolo

Manuscript submissions due: 15 March, 2021

DESCRIPTION

There are approximately 46 million people living with dementia worldwide and these numbers are expected to rise to 102 million by 2040. Dementia is a syndrome of progressive and irreversible cognitive decline affecting daily functioning, commonly caused by Alzheimer’s disease or vascular dementia. With a complex array of dementia symptoms, people with dementia progressively lose their sense of autonomy; including engagement in activities of daily living and capacity to make decisions. Emerging research in HCI has begun to examine various uses of technology to aid and assist people with dementia to improve their wellbeing, such as to provide interventions for training, assistive technology, cognitive assessment, or reminiscence. For instance, immersive technologies such as virtual reality have been explored as a tool for training and rehabilitation for individuals with early or mild dementia.… read more. “Call: “Advances in Human-Centred Dementia Technology” issue of Intl.

Call: Digital Worlds: A Virtual Workshop

Call for Papers

Digital Worlds: A Virtual Workshop
The Center for Collaboration and Ethics at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley
April 10 & 11, 2021
Online

Abstract submissions deadline: January 15, 2021

The Center for Collaboration and Ethics at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley invites submissions for a virtual workshop to be conducted remotely on April 10 & 11, 2021. We seek papers that interrogate the way modern digital technology enhances, hampers, or alters our experience of our lived worlds.

The distinction between “being on the internet” and “being in the real world” is eroding.  People can increasingly be said to “live on their phones” or other devices. This workshop aims to interrogate the meaning and structure of the world as mediated by such devices.

For example, Google Maps changes what it means to get lost and Air BnB changes who our neighbors are.… read more. “Call: Digital Worlds: A Virtual Workshop”

Call: “Horizon of Mixed Reality” issue of International Journal of Digital Art History (DAHJ)

Call for Papers

The International Journal of Digital Art History (DAHJ)
Special issue: Horizon of Mixed Reality
https://dahj.org/cfp/6

Submissions accepted on rolling basis; publication in first quarter of 2021

The International Journal of Digital Art History (DAHJ) responds to cutting edge scholarship concerning extended reality technologies. Today, mixed reality is poised to be just as transformative as analog film and photography, which radically reorganized many domains of modern life (including communication, science, politics, and art). This potential has become increasingly apparent in the face of our current global pandemic, wherein virtual landscapes have begun to serve as critical contact zones for practitioners of social distancing.

Despite an increasing awareness of these technologies (or perhaps, because of it), the role of mixed reality as a tool for art history and cultural heritage poses a series of unanswered questions for our community:

  • Embodied VR’s ability to register phenomenologically significant aspects of visual culture that cannot be relayed by photography (immersion, motion parallax, stereopsis).
