NeuroManagement and Intelligent Computing Method on Multimodal Interaction



Workshop Motivation


In recent years, the research of multimodal interaction has made rapid progress due to the development of artificial intelligence and big data mining technology, as well as the new findings of human psychology and behaviors. Nevertheless, there are still some difficult issues that need to be further explored such as how to comprehensively deal with the multimodal data from different sensory channels including verbal and non-verbal information, and how to accurately understand the expressive meaning of multimodal interactions under complex social situations, etc. Those have become the leading edge and multidisciplinary cross research frontier, as well as the key barrier to be broken through in the development of multimodal interaction. The existing methods are mainly based on pattern recognition technique trough the training between human's subjective self reports and his/her external performances such as face expressions, postures, voices, and behaviors, etc. The above methods lack of the basis of systematical correlation mechanism of human’s different external performances, and so as to make the recognition accuracy and computation cost to be a bottleneck for practical application, especially in the human-machine interactions under complex social situations. NeuroManagement, an emerging interdiscipline to study human’s psychology, behaviors and management based on neural mechanism, provides new theory and methodology for exploring the neural activities and inner mechanism in the dynamic process of multimodal interactions, and may offer important prior knowledge for improving the recognition accuracy and computation efficiency of human’s external performances. This workshop aims to explore the study of NeuroManagement and novel intelligent computing method on multimodal interaction from the perspective of multidiscipline, and will organize the experts from the fields of computer engineering, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, management science, linguistics, and psychology, to exchange their research work.


Call for Paper


Authors interested in this workshop are invited to submit a paper for review. The paper length will be limited to 6 pages, and no single/double-blind will be required. All the above papers will be firstly double-blind reviewed by the external reviewers without conflicts of interest. Finally, 2 invited papers will be selected for presentations, and 6 papers will be selected for posters by the internal reviewers based on the comments of the external reviewers.
