CFP - Geometry Friends Collaborative Game AI Competition at CIG’2016

-----------
Please redistribute and consider participation.
Apologies for multiple postings.
----------------------------------

Call for participation - The Geometry Friends Game AI Competition
Submission deadline: September 12

http://gaips.inesc-id.pt/geometryfriends/

Geometry Friends (GF) is a 2-player cooperative puzzle platformer game,
where 2 players control 2 characters (a circle and a rectangle), with
distinct characteristics, that try to collect some diamonds in a set of
levels as fast as possible.

The game promotes collaboration between the two players and presents
challenging coordinated control of the characters in a simulated physics
environment.

The game promotes collaboration between the two players and presents
challenging control of the characters in a simulated physics environment.

You can see two agents in action in here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBWUFRMw754

It raises interesting problems for AI agents. For example, to successfully
solve a GF level the players need to:

1) Deal with coordination at different layers: from motion control (e.g.
achieving perfect timing) to level resolution (e.g. devising shared plans);

[Deadline Approaching - May 6] CFP - 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Internet of Things for Ambient Assisted Living (IoTAAL) - IEEE PIMRC 2016, Valencia, Spain - Sept 4, 2016

CALL FOR PAPERS (apologies for multiple copies)

2nd IEEE International Workshop on Internet of Things for Ambient Assisted Living (IoTAAL)
In conjunction with IEEE PIMRC 2016, Valencia, Spain - Sept 4, 2016.

http://www.tlc.dii.univpm.it/iotaalms/iotaal2016/

************************************************
Deadline approaching: May 6, 2016
************************************************

MOTIVATION AND SCOPE
Developed countries worldwide are facing a rapidly growing elderly population and a declining
workforce, as a result of increased life expectancy and decreased birth rates. According to the United
Nations, the elderly, defined as people over the age of 60, will make up 37% of the European population by
2050, from 20% in 2000. With ageing, probability increases of developing physical and cognitive
impairments, requiring new and more effective ways to provide support and care. IoT technology may
provide significant enhancement to quality of life for the elderly and, in general, people in need.
Effective solutions for Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) require appropriate ICT algorithms,
architectures and platforms, that cannot leave out of consideration the development of new and
innovative approaches, particularly in the area of pervasive and mobile systems. The personal
communication between elderly people, their environment, and relevant groups of care givers is an
important aspect in AAL; such a need for a pervasive connectivity may leverage the IoT capabilities, to
connect humans to smart objects, and put smart objects at the service of users’ needs. At the same time,
the realm of Active and Assisted Living may provide a way to capitalize the vast amount of research and
knowledge developed up to know in the manifold aspects and facets of IoT. This workshop aims at
investigating the close relationship among IoT and AAL, to identify effective approaches towards an
increased Quality of Life for the current and future ageing populations. Among the different technical
issues that have to be considered when designing IoT solutions for AAL, some of them emerge as critical,
i.e.: low power communication technologies and energy-saving design at different layers, and in a

CHI'16: Bring your jogging shoes for our Sports-HCI session!

Dear CHI attendees,

We are again organizing a Special Interest Group (SIG) at CHI'16 in San
Jose: "Jogging at CHI".

Like in previous years, we will be jogging around the conference venue
while we discuss interactive technology and sports. We invite you to bring
your running gear with you (and any jogging apps, sportswatches, your own
prototype, ...) and we meet on

Wednesday, 11 May, 16:30 in front of room 112

(where you can leave your bags) and jog from there. So bring your runners,
either get changed at your hotel during the break before or use the toilets
next to the room, we'll leave the conference venue at approx. 16:45 for a
run around the venue outside.
We have done this three times in the past and everyone involved seemed to
have enjoyed this "alternative" format of a SIG while getting some exercise
at CHI.

We'll be running for approx. 30min and we have plans to accommodate those
who want to jog slower/faster/further/not that long etc. All jogging levels
will be catered for!

Abstract:
HCI is increasingly paying attention to sports, and more and more CHI
attendees are aiming to maintain being physically active while attending
CHI. In response, we offer a SIG on the topic of sports-HCI and conduct it
in a sportive way: we will go out of the conference venue and jog around
San Jose while discussing the role of HCI in relation to sports. The goal

Goodtechs 2016: Call for Special Session Proposals

Please consider the following Call for Special Sessions Proposals and to 
submit a paper to the conference.

===================================
CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS PROPOSALS
===================================

2nd EAI International Conference on Smart Objects and Technologies for 
Social Good
Nov 30 - Dec 1, 2016 | VENICE, ITALY

http://goodtechs.eu/2016

In GOODTECHS we are interested in experiences with the design, 
implementation, deployment, operation and evaluation of smart objects 
and technologies for social good. Clearly, we are not considering only 
the so called first world as the scenario for this evolution; we also 
refer to those areas where ICT is currently less widespread, hoping that 
it may represent a societal development opportunity rather than a source 
for further divide.

The GOODTEHCS 2016 technical program will include Special Sessions. 
Their papers will be included in the proceedings as regular papers and 
will could be selected to be published (an extended version) in the 
Special Issues of Journals associated to the conference (Springer 
Mobile, Networks and Application; EAI Transactions on Ambient Systems, 
etc.) Their objective is to complement the regular program with new or 
emerging topics that are of particular interest to the community.
Proposals on emerging or disruptive topics guaranteed to generate 
significant interest in the community will be selected.

2nd CfP Symbiotic Interaction, International Workshop on

The Fifth International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction (http://symbiotic2016.org/) will take
place on the 29th and 30th of September 2016 and will be hosted by the Human Inspired Technology Research
center of the University of Padua (Italy).

HIGHLIGHTS:
-­‐ extended deadline, common to all categories: 15th June
-­‐ doctoral consortium with prominent figures from different fields and DC award
-­‐ best paper award
-­‐ confirmed keynote speaker: Hans Gellersen, Lancaster University

OVERVIEW
The International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction is the primary venue to present scientific works
dealing with the symbiotic relationships between humans and computers and to discuss the nature and
implications of such relationship, including ethics. The idea of symbiotic systems put  forward in  this
workshop  capitalizes on the  computers’ ability  to implicitly (even subliminally) detect the
users’ goals, preferences or/and psycho-­‐ physiological states and to modify its output
accordingly. The workshop comes back to Padua this year after three successful editions in London,
Helsinki and Berlin and extends its scope to qualitative research.

The emphasis is on user-­‐driven research on symbiotic systems, adaptive systems, implicit input
data, physiological computing and BCI, but also on understanding more deeply the nature of the
interdependence and agency between computers and humans.

Topics regard but are not limited to:

•            Multimodal input for symbiotic systems
•            Design and evaluation approaches: relevant dimensions for designing and evaluating a usable and
satisfactory symbiotic system
•            Context-­‐aware and user-­‐aware adaptive solutions
•            Ethic issues and responsibilities (transparency, control, profiling, agency, …)
