Call: Trusting and Distrusting the Digital World in Imaginative Literature Conference

CALL FOR PAPERS

Trusting and Distrusting the Digital World in Imaginative Literature
University College Dublin, Ireland
June 7-9, 2023
https://trustlit.org/conference-2023/

Keynote Speakers:
Prof. William Davies (Goldsmiths, University of London)
Prof. Ellen Rutten (University of Amsterdam)

Submission deadline: February 13, 2023

This conference aims to connect two prominent scholarly conversations of the contemporary moment: concerning, on the one hand, the ways in which the digital age has shaped (and been shaped by) human trust relations; and on the other, how digital technologies have intersected with the traditions and practices of imaginative literature. We seek to bring together scholars interested in either or both of these fields of inquiry for an interdisciplinary dialogue on trust, the digital, and the literary.

Scholars across a wide variety of disciplines – including sociology, philosophy, political science, anthropology, psychology, management and organisation studies – have recognised the importance of the digital revolution for thinking about trust.… read more. “Call: Trusting and Distrusting the Digital World in Imaginative Literature Conference”

Call: The Struggle Is (For) Real: Cultivating Authenticity in the “BeReal” Age – Flow special issue

Call for Papers

THE STRUGGLE IS (FOR) REAL: CULTIVATING AUTHENTICITY IN THE “BEREAL” AGE
Flow Volume 29 Special Issue 4
https://ecrea.eu/page-18206/13024948

Deadline: January 13, 2023

The viral popularity of BeReal prophesizes the next generation of social media and social sharing platforms. The image-centric sharing platform, launched in 2020 by Alexis Barreyat and Kevin Perreau, promotes itself as a platform for people who hate social media. The platform’s 10 million active users receive a daily notification reminding them it is “time to BeReal” while allowing two minutes to snap their current moment. Already recognized as the “antidote to social media fakery” (Duffy & Gerrard, 2022), BeReal encourages authenticity through the platform’s logic and design while policing users’ labor through its emphasis on capturing each post in a single shot. BeReal cultivates a return to simplicity with its minimalist interface and simple user experience flow (Boffone, 2022).… read more. “Call: The Struggle Is (For) Real: Cultivating Authenticity in the “BeReal” Age – Flow special issue”

Call: “The Future of Work, Play, and Education in the Metaverse” issue of Moral Philosophy and Politics

Call for Papers

Special Issue of Moral Philosophy and Politics on “The Future of Work, Play, and Education in the Metaverse”
https://mopp-journal.org/go-to-main-page/calls-for-papers/

Guest Editors:
Nir Eisikovits (Director, Center for Applied Ethics, UMass Boston)
James Hughes (IEET Executive Director and Associate Provost, UMass Boston)
Alec Stubbs (UMass Boston Post-Doctoral Fellow)

Submission deadline: July 1, 2023

With Facebook’s rebranding to Meta in 2021, the concept of ‘the metaverse’ became a ubiquitous term overnight, inviting both excitement and intense skepticism about the possibilities of our digital future. Broadly speaking, ‘the metaverse’ refers to the emerging online network of three-dimensional, virtual worlds facilitated by virtual and augmented reality technologies. As a proposed successor to our current model of the internet, the metaverse offers a virtual counterpart to our physical world that can accommodate our lives of work, play, and education. Three-dimensional workspaces – whether facilitated by virtual reality or augmented reality headsets – represent new immersive environments for social interaction, community-building, productivity, and learning.… read more. “Call: “The Future of Work, Play, and Education in the Metaverse” issue of Moral Philosophy and Politics”

Call: Making Visible: Bodies, Environments, and Apparatuses – Special issue of Italian Journal of Cognitive Sciences

Call for Papers

Reti, saperi, linguaggi – Italian Journal of Cognitive Sciences
Special Issue: Making Visible: Bodies, Environments, and Apparatuses
Editors: Prof. Chiara Cappelletto and Giulio Galimberti
Call: https://groups.google.com/g/ISR-HPS-STS/c/nptBBleJh80
Journal: https://www.rivisteweb.it/rivisteweb/journaldetails/index/issn/2279-7777

Submission deadline: September 4, 2023

Dear all,

in this special issue of Reti, saperi, linguaggi, a peer-reviewed A-ranked journal released by Il Mulino, we want to address the topic of imaging technologies.

Sixty years ago new visualization strategies came to the public floor displaying “pictures” of our living bodies and our cerebral and reproductive functions. These strategies make visible– that is, they visibilize–biological processes that are not visual per se, but rather chemical, thermal, magnetic, acoustic, electric.

The resulting visual outputs do not simply implement the iconosphere, but actually pervert it, since they cannot be looked at as icons, no matter how operational or environmental they are conceived of being.… read more. “Call: Making Visible: Bodies, Environments, and Apparatuses – Special issue of Italian Journal of Cognitive Sciences”

Call: Psychologically Inspired Cognitive Systems – Special issue of Cognitive Systems Research

Call for papers

Psychologically Inspired Cognitive Systems
Special Issue of Cognitive Systems Research
https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/cognitive-systems-research/about/call-for-papers

Manuscript submission deadline: April 30, 2023

SPECIAL ISSUE INFORMATION:

We live in a rapidly changing world. The current challenge for artificial cognitive systems, including virtual and physical artifacts, is to rise to the human level of social-emotional intelligence and become socially acceptable for humans. Therefore, this special issue is intended to promote, facilitate, and integrate studies from many disciplines, unified by the challenge of developing psychologically inspired cognitive systems. Solutions in the form of embodied agents are expected based on symbolic cognitive modeling, deep learning models, hybrid, and alternative approaches. This highly multidisciplinary task calls on studies in Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, and Neuroscience to address a broad spectrum of topics, including multimodal human-computer interface techniques for virtual environment and robotic platforms, models of affective and social behavior, artificial creativity, imagery, theory of mind, meta-reasoning, cognitive development, self-regulated learning, natural language processing, as well as models of evolutionary deep learning, machine ethics and morality, psychological profiling of humans and artifacts, and more.… read more. “Call: Psychologically Inspired Cognitive Systems – Special issue of Cognitive Systems Research”

Call: GSGS 2023 – 8th International conference on Gamification & Serious GameS

Call for Contributions

GSGS 2023 – 8th International conference on Gamification & Serious GameS
June 26-30, 2023
Neuchâtel, Switzerland
https://gsgs.ch

Submission deadline: January 27, 2023

CONTEXT

The GSGS addresses the demand of really user-centered products by falling within the needs of the industrial fabric and the innovation produced by the applied research. This annual event backs the fundamental relation between pragmatic academy and economy, at a regional scale for short and dynamic projects as well as at a national or global scale to set up long-term synergies.

CONCEPT OF INDUSTRIAL GAMIFICATION

The main idea consists in answering the real needs of the user by making him responsible for the professional process he masters while enhancing his efforts and his successes but also backing him up in his issues.

So, the GSGS presents tangible ideas that underline the real potential of a ludic approach to take up technical and serious challenges.… read more. “Call: GSGS 2023 – 8th International conference on Gamification & Serious GameS”

MOTIVATION AND GOALS

Human-AI Interaction is a rapidly growing research area. As Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) increasingly take over tasks previously performed only by humans, it leads to more situations where humans and machines need to cooperate. Compared to their traditional supportive role, current AI products increasingly make autonomous decisions and share responsibility with humans in a wide range of domains such as self-driving cars, robotic surgical systems, and human-AI decision-making teams. In many cases, social interaction convention developed between humans, such as collaboration and competition, is becoming a starting point for understanding and designing human-machine cooperation (HMC) on topics such as ability, authority, and control.… read more. “Call: First Workshop on Human-AI Interaction through Play – at FDG 2023”
