WASSS description

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.
