To support humans in demanding circumstances it is often required that 
an intelligent system application has some form of human-awareness. This 
means that the system has a form of intelligence that enables it to 
analyze and tune itself to the human's cognitive and affective states 
and processes, such as attention, level of stress, or exhaustion. To 
design such intelligent applications in the first place the system needs 
knowledge of the relevant human processes, and possesses methods to use 
this knowledge to become human-aware: to estimate and analyze the 
human's states and processes. Furthermore, based on such human-awareness 
the system is able to tune its actions and interactions with the human. 
In this track we are looking for research papers that explore building 
blocks or full applications for such intelligent systems. All kinds of 
aspects of cognitive and affective human processes in all areas of life 
and/or work may be relevant. For example, the papers can address the 
analysis and modeling of such human processes, or models, architecture, 
or interfaces to support human cognitive and/or affective processes. 
Hereby, the (intended) application system does not necessarily need to 
incorporate an explicit model of human processes, but can also be based 
on heuristics developed by using formalized models of human functioning.

* cognitive agent models
* user modeling
* human machine interaction
* coping with affective phenomena, such as negative emotions and moods
* contagion within teams
* shared mental models: shared between human and software agents
* awareness of forms of social interaction
* models for persuasion & motivation
* mutual understanding in cooperation in teams (where teams can consist 
of humans, of robots/agents, or both)
* the influence of values and norms on human and team functioning

Authors are invited to electronically submit their paper, written in 
English, of up to 10 single spaced pages, presenting the results of 
original research or innovative practical applications relevant for the 
special session.

Shorter works, up to 6 pages, to be presented in 10 minutes, may be 
submitted as SHORT PAPERS representing work in progress or suggesting 
possible research directions.

Submitted papers should in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence 
(LNAI) format and can be submitted via EasyChair (see 
http://ssdut.dlut.edu.cn/iea-aie/webpages/sub.htm for instructions ) or 
via email (mhoogen at cs.vu.nl).

Accepted papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings 
of the IEA/AIE 2012 conference, published by Springer Verlag in the 
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.
