Workshop on Affective Social Speech Signals – WASSS’201

**** Workshop  on Affective Social Speech Signals    WASSS’201  ****

Grenoble, 22-23 august 2013 –

Satellite of Interspeech 2013

The WASSSS workshop will take place at the University of Grenoble, approximately 1.5 hour by train, bus or car from Lyon. It will be held over 2 days: the Thursday and Friday before Interspeech.).

This workshop will provide a meeting place for the  different communities interested into why, how and when speech is used by humans for signalling socio-affective functions. It will be dedicated to building interdisciplinary research and cross-fertilization between the  different scientific communities All areas related to human communication are concerned: language and speech computing, robotics or virtual agents, as well as linguistics, phonetics, pragmatics, didactics, sociology, psychology, neuropsychology, ethology, biology, etc. The organisation of affect is complex – from low-level emotion automatic or reflexive  processing to higher cognitive levels , culture-dependent, language-organized, controlled processing. Speech can signal some very rich social and emotional cues, reflecting personality, social role, the cultural/language  specificities in all human interactions and more broadly  in human communication.  This workshop will be especially the place where “social emotions” will be debated from different points of view, with different meanings depending on the domain.

— The intended contributions can be related, but not limited to:

–       social emotions, social affect: theories or models, how and why signalled
–       social affect signals (e.g. expressions of automatic emotions and more social emotions, attitudes, intentions, mental states, cognitive processing, feelings…): corpus,  description, annotation, etc
–       the cultural contrast of affective social speech
–       psychological/neuropsychological models and cues for social affect processing
–       social and anthropological models for analysing affective processing and

–       social affect in Human Machine Interaction and dialog
–       multimodality of the social signals in face to face speech interactions
–       the place of social speech affect in L2 learning
–        the challenge of social signals for robots and embodied virtual agents
–       social affect in  speech technologies: speech synthesis, recognition or translation
–       speech social affect within personality, social rule and culture
