Call for Papers

The 2018 International Conference on Kansei Engineering and Emotion Research (KEER 2018) gathers researchers and practitioners from the world focusing on Kansei research and development, and related topics. It is an open-minded, interdisciplinary, intercultural, welcoming conference. It is first envisioned as a time for kansei-related researchers, industrials and students to meet and share experiences, researches, and friendship. It is therefore rather a welcoming conference, rather than selective one, yet expected acceptable scientific quality of the proceedings.


Presented papers in Regular Session will be published in LiU online conference proceedings (ISSN: 1650-3686, eISSN: 1650-3740), indexed in DBLP, and Google Scholar, and will be invited for publication in the prestigious International Journal of Affective Engineering, published by Japan Society of Kansei Engineering. ​

​Presented papers in Special Session will be published in the prestigious Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, indexed in ISI Proceedings, EI-Compendex, DBLP, SCOPUS, Google Scholar and Springerlink.

Selected best papers will receive Award & Certificate from the organizer and potentially to be invited for submission of extended papers to high impact journals.
