The purpose of the Affective Computing Student Interest Group (ACSIG) at the LDOS laboratory (University of Ljubljana Faculty of electrical engineering) is to stimulate the study and research in the field of affective computing and related fields (social signal processing, human computer interaction etc.) in undergraduate, phd students and researchers in general.
The ACSIG group finds its roots in the research activities of the LDOS group: low level signal processing, information retrieval, user modeling, user interaction, content filtering. The activities of the group are in synergy with other LDOS activities (LDOS seminars, equipment, student projects, theses etc..).
The ACSIG is a non formal group of students and researchers who express their interest and support by taking part in the group's activities. A non binding list of members is kept.
The coordinator of the group is Marko Tkalčič and he is responsible for all activities unless otherwise agreed.
The ACSIG will carry out activities that follow the goals defined above:
- regular meetings of the group
- regular journal reading club sessions
- regular yearly workshop
- support student projects
- publishing news, announcements
- networking activities
All the documentation related to the group (news, announcements, minutes, presentations, papers, links etc.) will be stored in a single and accessible repository, this website.
2012-03-01 A workshop on affect and cognitive sciences will be held within the Mei:CogSci study http://www.pef.uni-lj.si/kognitivna/ with Marko Tkalčič as one of the lecturers. Welcome! Programme is here http://www.pef.uni-lj.si/kognitivna/DOCUMENTS/Predavanja/%C4%8Custva-vabilo.pdf
