Invited Session 11: Computational Culture, Arts, and Interaction on KES2023

The session has been successfully completed!!

We welcomed 6 papers of research for computational culture, arts, and interaction.

  • Yuna Fujii, Yihong Han, Yoko Nishihara, Junjie Shan: Sentiment Analysis of User Reviews Transition in Multimedia Franchise
  • Fuka Nakashima, Naoki Fujimoto, Ryosuke Yamanishi: Do Appearances Represent Personality of Created Characters?
  • China Takahashi, Mitsunori Matsushita, Ryosuke Yamanishi: Exploration cycle finding a better dining experience: a framework of meal-plates
  • Taketo Fujikawa, Mitsunori Matsushita: Estimating Story-events of Comics Based on Characteristic Words
  • Takumi Takaku, Yoshiki Maki, Satoshi Nakamura: A method to construct comic spoiler dataset and the analysis of comic spoilers
  • Tohya Aoki, Yuka Fujiwara, Satoshi Nakamura: Validation of Game Advantage Disadvantage Control Considering Color Vision Characteristics: A Basic Study on Among Us with Different Color Settings

This year is the first edition of this section. The section incidentally consisted of papers by Japanese researchers. However, we welcomed many participants, which were 50-50 between researchers from Japan and other countries. We kindly had so many questions and comments from the participants! Thank you so much for your kind attention!

We will plan to organize another session on KES 2024 in Spain. We are welcoming your papers for computational culture, arts, and interaction: comics, animes, music, foods, travel experiences, games, etc. Whatever we love to see, love to listen to, love to have, and love to do!
See you then!

KES 2023 6 – 8 September 2023, at Royal Olympic Hotel – Athens, Greece
