28 June - 1 July 2011, IEA/AIE 2011 special session on modeling and support of cognitive and affective human processes, Syracuse NY, U.S.A.

Date: 28 June - 1 July 2011
Location: Syracuse NY, U.S.A.
Deadline: 17 December 2010

To support humans in demanding circumstances it is often required that an intelligent system application has some form of human-awareness. This means that the system has a form of intelligence that enables it to analyze and tune itself to the human's cognitive and affective states and processes, such as attention, level of stress, or exhaustion. To design such intelligent applications in the first place the system needs knowledge of the relevant human processes, and possesses methods to use this knowledge to become human-aware: to estimate and analyze the human's states and processes. Furthermore, based on such human-awareness the system is able to tune its actions and interactions with the human.

In this track we are looking for research papers that explore building blocks or full applications for such intelligent systems. All kinds of aspects of cognitive and affective human processes in all areas of life and/or work may be relevant. For example, the papers can address the analysis and modeling of such human processes, or models, architecture, or interfaces to support human cognitive and/or affective processes. Hereby, the (intended) application system does not necessarily need to incorporate an explicit model of human processes, but can also be based on heuristics developed by using formalized models of human functioning.
