Submissions will be reviewed in a single-blind manner, and each submission will receive 2 to 3 reviews.

Accepted papers will be published and indexed on IEEExplore in a separate proceeding (volume) that includes the doctoral consortium, demos and workshops of ACII 2022.

We are also in contact with several journals, namely IJSR (International Journal of Social Robotics), Interaction Study, and IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems, regarding publishing extended version of submissions accepted to our workshop as a special issue at one of these journals.

Authors should format their papers using the IEEE Template for Computer Society Conferences, similar to the ACII 2021 main conference submission guidelines (overleaf and Word templates).

Please submit your paper via EasyChair.
