2017 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games

Call For Papers

Computer games not only offer a killer application for artificial and computational intelligence, including machine learning and search but also provide a compelling domain where problem solving and decision making meet artifact creation; both of which can be experienced via a highly immersive, complex and rich interaction. Additionally, methods from computational intelligence promise to have a big impact on game technology and development, assisting designers and developers and enabling new types of computer games. The Computational Intelligence and Games (CIG) conference series brings together leading researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss recent advances and explore future directions in this field. The annual IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games (IEEE CIG) is one of the premier international conferences in the field of computational intelligence and games.

We welcome papers related to all aspects of computational/artificial intelligence and games. This includes advances in and applications of machine learning, search, reasoning, optimization and other CI/AI methods related to video games, board games, computer games, serious games, mathematical games and other types of games. This includes, but is not limited to, methods for game playing, content generation, player modeling, and game adaptation, as well as game-based testing of AI methods. This year, we are slightly expanding our scope to also include technical and quantitative game design papers.

*Special session on Personalized delivery of cultural heritage content
Digital cultural heritage is now a mature field, in which information technologies are used in the service of preserving cultural heritage. The digital form of resources allows for the exploitation of advances in data analytics, semantics, information retrieval, user interaction, profiling and personalization in order to develop new, exciting and stimulating exhibitions and cultural/educational/touristic experiences.

For this special session we invite works that present and/or review the current state of the art in theory and practice, as well as promising recent advances, in the area of aligning the delivery process for cultural heritage content to the needs, goals, characteristics and preferences of individual users and user groups. The session is broad in scope, with the caveat that emphasis should be on the link between cultural heritage and personalization techniques.

*Special Session on Multimodal affective analysis for human-machine interfaces and learning environments
Affective analysis is a broad research area that focuses on the recognition, interpretation, processing and simulation of human affect, i.e., feelings or emotions. During the last years many efforts in the fields of content understanding and human-machine interaction have turned towards a more human-centered approach and complement traditional semantic-based ones by enhancing them with the users’ affective state while interacting with machines (typically computers, avatars and robots).

This special session calls for research papers focusing on signal analysis and machine learning techniques that extract affective knowledge from auditory, visual and textual information usually employed in human-machine interaction and learning applications. Papers that focus on new signal representation, feature extraction and emotion modelling approaches are welcomed, as well as papers covering practical work, tools and applications.

As with all previous editions of SMAP, all accepted papers are planned to be published by IEEE in IEEEXplore. Based on the quality of the work presented and its estimated potential selected papers will be invited for consideration, in a revised and extended form, for inclusion in an additional journal publication.

*Submission guidelines
Each submitted paper will be refereed by at least three members of the SMAP 2017 Program Committee, based on its relevance, originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English, and can present mature research or experimental results as well as promising work in progress. Papers must be formatted according to the IEEE 2-column conference article style, with a limit of 6 pages, including all figures, tables and references. A minimum paper length of 4 pages is also imposed.
