Apologies for cross posting.

Call for papers
** Special Issue on Advances in Affective Analysis in Multimedia IEEE Transaction on Affective Computing (TAC) **

Recent advances in multimedia computing brought a dramatic increase in the research on multimedia retrieval and indexing based on highly subjective concepts such as emotion, preference and aesthetics. These retrieval methods are considered human-centered, intuitive, and beyond the conventional keyword- or object-based retrieval paradigm. In addition, the problem is considered challenging because it requires multidisciplinary understanding of human behavior and perception as well as multimodal integration of different modalities (music, image, video, text) for better performance. Affective analyses of multimedia are attracting growing attention from industry and general public, e.g., mood based online radio stations.
IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing is the flagship journal in affective computing, featuring the state of the art on this multidisciplinary topic. We are inviting original submissions to for this special issue from the topics including but not limited to:
- Affective/emotional content analysis of music, images and videos
- Multimodal integration for affective content understanding
- Affective multimedia indexing
- Affect in content retrieval and recommendation
- Image and video summarization based on affect
- Emotional implicit tagging, sensing techniques and interactive systems
- Affective benchmarking development
- Cognitive/psychological perspective on affective content analysis
- Affective multimedia applications
