CFP: BICT 2015 Special Track on Anthropomorphic Robot and Physiological Information for Cares and Daily Communication (ARPI)

December 3 (Thu) - December 5, 2015 (Sat)
New York City, NY, USA

Bio information represents various states of a living being and its presence. The internal states such as emotions also affect the biological representation. The special track on Anthropomorphic Robot and Physiological Information for Cares and Daily Communication (ARPI) is expected for the participants who are interested in 1) the recognition of the human's physiological representations or 2) the artificial expression of the physiological state of the robot, in human-robot communication for our better lives. This session calls for papers related but not limited to:

  • Robot Systems with Bio-inspired Representations
  • Virtual Agents with Bio-inspired Representations Machine Learning Systems
  • Emotional-Biological or Emotional-Physiological Interaction Model
  • Communication Systems using Biological Information
  • Elderly Caring Robot
  • Automatic Estimation of Biological / Physiological State of Human User
  • Expressiveness of Living Beings
  • Communication through Daily Physiological Information
  • Affective Use of Biological / Physiological Information


Regular paper submission due: August 31
Short and poster/demo paper submission due: September 22
Notification for regular papers: September 21
Notification for short and poster/demo papers: October 1
Camera ready due: October 15



Authors are invited to submit regular papers (up to 8 pages each), short papers (up to 4 pages each) or poster/demo papers (up to 2 pages each) in ACM's paper template. Up to two extra pages are allowed for each paper with extra page charges. See for more details.
