Call for Papers: Cognitive Behavioural Systems (LNCS Springer)



This volume will bring together, the advanced research results obtained by the European COST Action 2102 “Cross Modal Analysis of Verbal and Nonverbal Communication”, primarily discussed at the EUCogII‐SSPNET‐COST2102 International Training School on “Cognitive Behavioural Systems ” (http://www.ias.et.tu‐dresden.de/ias/index.php?id=503) held in Dresden, Germany, February 21‐26 2011.

The Conference was jointly sponsored by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology, www.cost.eu) in the domain of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for disseminating the advances of the research activities developed within the COST Action 2102: “Cross‐Modal Analysis of Verbal and Nonverbal Communication” (cost2102.cs.stir.ac.uk), by the Network of Excellence on Social Signal Processing, SSPnet (http://sspnet.eu/) and by EUCogII – the 2nd European Network for the Advancement of Artificial Cognitive Systems, Interaction and Robotics (www.eucognition.org).

The call for contributions is open to all researchers in the field and not only for those that joined the meeting.
