At the same time, Social= Computing offers great potential in particular for these users: Many targe= t groups show high affinity to technical systems and practically all of the= se can be assumed to benefit from social networks and social and affective = technical solutions tailored to their needs. As a consequence, there has be= en a growing interest within the computing community in becoming more engag= ed in social sciences and more particularly in psychopathologies such as Au= tism. The=A0WS=B3P=A02012 workshop aims to gather researchers and practitio= ners in the field of Social Computing, Social Signal Processing, Social Rob= otics and Psychopathology. Joint research across these communities will hav= e a major impact on methodologies, problems and issues related to users wit= h development or abilities on a wide spectrum. =A0 The workshop fosters discussions covering topics such as (but not limited t= o): . Processing of Wide Spectrum Social Signals and Wide Spectrum Emotions and= Affect . Corpora of Wide Spectrum Social Signals, Emotion and Affect . Machine Learning Techniques for Interaction Modelling . Inclusive User Interfaces .Targeted Social Networks for User Groups with Special Requirements . Digital Socio-Emotional Gaming for Empowerment and Inclusion . Case Studies and Applications in Real-life Contexts . Long-term Modelling of Wide Spectrum Behaviours . Data Acquisition, Annotation, Protocols and Ethics . Impact of Social Signal Processing in the Psycho-Pathology =A0 =A0 Organization: This event is organized as a satellite workshop of the ASE/IEEE Internation= al Conference on Social Computing (SocialCom) that=A0will take place in Ams= terdam (The Netherlands), September 3-6, 2012.=A0 =A0 Organizers: Mohamed Chetouani (primary contact),=A0Institut des Syst=E8mes Intelligents= et de Robotique (ISIR)=A0Universit=E9 Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) Bj=F6rn Schuller,=A0Technische Universit=E4t M=FCnchen (TUM) Peter Robinson,=A0University of Cambridge =A0 Information:=A0 ws3p-socialcom2012@xxxxxxxx =A0 Important dates: Paper submission=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0 =A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0= =A0=A0=A0 15 June 2012 Notification of acceptance =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 10 July 2012 Camera ready paper =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A025 July 2012 Workshop =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 = =A0 3-6 September 2012 (one-day workshop, date t.b.d.) =A0 Sponsors: The workshop will be co-sponsored by the European projects ASC-Inclusion (w= and Michelangelo ( and th= e HUMAINE Association. =A0 Thank you for excusing cross-posting. ___________________________________________ Dr. Bj=F6rn Schuller Technische Universit=E4t M=FCnchen Institute for Human-Machine Communication D-80333 M=FCnchen Germany +49-(0)89-289-28548 schuller@xxxxxxxx ___________________________________________ --_002_543D4FD247AF9C489398AAD86F8577FE3A62CCB4BADWLRZSWMBX1ad_ Content-Type: text/plain; name="ATT00001.c" Content-Description: ATT00001.c Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="ATT00001.c"; size=156; creation-date="Wed, 09 May 2012 08:07:46 GMT"; modification-date="Wed, 09 May 2012 08:07:46 GMT" Content-ID: <5E0E3AE69C853143BDDD56BA45FC3E44@xxxxxxxx> Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 X19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX18NCkFubm91bmNl IG1haWxpbmcgbGlzdA0KQW5ub3VuY2VAZW1vdGlvbi1yZXNlYXJjaC5uZXQNCmh0dHA6Ly9tYWls bWFuLmVtb3Rpb24tcmVzZWFyY2gubmV0L2xpc3RpbmZvL2Fubm91bmNl --_002_543D4FD247AF9C489398AAD86F8577FE3A62CCB4BADWLRZSWMBX1ad_--
