Social Signal Processing (SSP seminar 2012)

Denis Lalanne
Fabien Ringeval

The Topic: Social signal processing (SSP) aims at studing the multimodal signals involved in human human communication and interactions. The core idea of SSP is that non verbal behavior is the machine detectable evidence of social signals, the relational attitudes exchanged between individuals. Social signals include (dis)agreement, empathy, hostility, and any other attitude towards others. Thus, non verbal analysis is used as a key to automatic understanding of social interactions. 

Description: The goal of this seminar is to overview the domain of Social Signal Processing (SSP). Another objective of this seminar is to develop skills in reading, writing and reviewing academic papers. In this context, students will be asked to write and present a state of the art of a sub-domain of SSP research field.

Each student will be asked to choose a theme within the domain, select state-of-the-art references relevant to the chosen thematic, synthesize these references and present them orally in a presentation, done during one of the final seminar sessions in a written report, of 4 pages, authored in LaTeX following ACM Strict format.

Learning outcomes: At the end of the seminar, students will know how to do a bibliographic research, how to judge the quality of a scientific paper, and how to write a scientific article. Further, they will know what is SSP and the current techniques and trends, and will deepen their knowledge on a particular subtopic.

Participants: If you are willing to participate to this seminar, please contact the organizers. Max. 6 students will be accepted.
