SCOPE AND TOPICS

Understanding the game state and player action is a fundamental objective for any game researcher, because it sheds light on various aspects about the players and the game, such as skills, strategies, engagement, intention, retention, difficulty level and decision-making. Such intelligence helps us advance closer to the holy grail of providing a perfectly personalized and wholesome user experience, in a data-driven manner.

In recent times, there have been numerous innovative advances in the space of AI and machine learning for the gaming domain, including bots and reinforcement learning agents for perfect and imperfect information games, dynamic content generation for digital games, and so on. … read more. “Call: First Pacific Asia Workshop on Game Intelligence & Informatics (GII)”

Call: Conference on Social Robots in Institutional Interaction

Call for Abstracts

Conference on Social Robots in Institutional Interaction: Exploring HRI in Service, Healthcare or Educational Contexts
2-3 April 2020
Bielefeld University
https://ekvv.uni-bielefeld.de/blog/soziologie/entry/call_for_papers_for_conference

Organizers: Indra Bock & Florian Muhle

Submission deadline: 10 January 2020

Humanoid robots and virtual agents are expected to interact with humans in a natural and sociable way. However, for many years humanoid technical systems were mainly used as research platforms in laboratories and HRI was investigated dominantly with experimental methods. That is, for a long time humans could only encounter robotic systems under artificial and controlled laboratory conditions, but not in natural situations. This has changed in recent years, since the first robotic systems made the leap into everyday life settings. Today, robots like Pepper, Nao or Care-O-bot have left the laboratories in order to work in various institutional environments such as health care, customer service or educational institutions, where they make contact with the public and staff.… read more. “Call: Conference on Social Robots in Institutional Interaction”

Call: “Pretense and Imagination from the Perspective of 4E Cognitive Science” issue of Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences

Call for Papers:

“Pretense and Imagination from the Perspective of 4E Cognitive Science”
Special Issue of Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences
https://philevents.org/event/show/78442

Guest Editors:

Zuzanna Rucińska, Centre for Philosophical Psychology, University of Antwerp, Belgium

Submission deadline: August 1, 2020

4E Cognitive Science understands cognition as embodied, embedded, enactive, and extended, though the list of “E”’s can be extended to conceiving of cognition as ecological, enculturated and emotional as well. While there are important differences between these approaches, they all agree that there is more to cognition than what goes on in the head: cognition is said to be shaped, structured or even co-constituted by the dynamic interactions between the brain, the body, and both the physical and the social environment. These approaches have been taking cognitive science by storm.

However, 4E Cognitive Science is still relatively silent about higher forms of cognition, such as pretense and imagination.… read more. “Call: “Pretense and Imagination from the Perspective of 4E Cognitive Science” issue of Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences”

Call: “Understanding UX through Implicit and Explicit Feedback” issue of Multimodal Technologies and Interaction

Call for Papers

Understanding UX through Implicit and Explicit Feedback
Special issue of Multimodal Technologies and Interaction

In collaboration with the MDPI journal “Multimodal Technologies and Interaction”, we are bringing researchers together to contribute to a Special Issue on:
Understanding UX through Implicit and Explicit Feedback

Guest Editors:
Dr. ir. Bruce Ferwerda, Jonkoping University, Jonkoping, Sweden
Dr. ir. Mark Graus, Maastricht University, Maastricht, the Netherlands

https://www.mdpi.com/journal/mti/special_issues/UX_feedback

Submissions are ongoing with the final submission deadline for manuscripts to be considered on 31 March 2020.

This special issue aims to explore the opportunities and challenges of combining implicit and explicit feedback to understand and design user experience (UX) in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

Measuring UX is important to understand how successful applications and systems are in reaching their goals. In general, there are two main approaches to measure UX: 1) explicit feedback (i.e., using data measured through surveys, interviews and focus groups) and 2) implicit feedback (i.e., using data describing users’ observable interaction behavior measured through, for example, telemetry).… read more. “Call: “Understanding UX through Implicit and Explicit Feedback” issue of Multimodal Technologies and Interaction”
