HCI 2020

jULY 19TH, 2020

Our partners from Universitat Politècnica de València in Spain presented the poster “Speech Emotion Recognition from Social Media Voice Messages Recorded in the Wild” at the 22nd International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI2020).

The event was held from 19 to 24 July 2020, under the auspices of 21 distinguished international boards of 492 Members from 49 Countries. The conference was planned to be held at the AC Bella Sky Hotel and Bella Center, Copenhagen, Denmark, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the decision of the Danish government not to allow events larger than 500 people to be hosted until the 1st of September 2020, it was held virtually.

The format of the virtual HCII conference program changed, spreading the duration of the conference to six days (19-24 July 2020). In this way, the daily load of the conference was reduced to four hours: two sessions, two-hours each (with a half-hour break in-between). The conference started and ended at a different time each day allowing participants from different time zones (77 countries around the world) to join the conference during time-periods which, for some of the time, were more convenient for them, taking particularly into account – to the extent possible, the ‘time-zone’ of the presenters.

Over 2,400 individuals from 77 countries registered to attend this year’s conference.

The Conference Proceedings were published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) and Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series and are available on-line through the SpringerLink Digital Library, readily accessible by all subscribing libraries around the world.
