What data are you contributing?
We will be collecting the following data as part of this event
Acceleration and proximity
Our newly designed MINGLE Midge wearable device records acceleration and proximity during your interactions. Acceleration readings can be used to infer some of your actions like walking and gesturing. It is worn around the neck like a conference badge.
Overhead cameras will mounted to capture the interaction. These videos will be used to annotate behavior and for detection of social actions like speaking or of conversational groups.
The Mingle MIDGE will also record low-frequency audio. This low frequency is enough for recognizing if you are speaking, but not enough to understand the content of your speech, giving us valuable information without compromising your privacy. Example audio:
Your research interests and level of experience within the MM community will be linked to the data above via a numerical identifier.

ConfLab is an initiative of the Socially Perceptive Computing Lab, Delft University of Technology.
We have over 10 years of experience in developing automated behavior analysis tools and collecting large scale social behavior in the wild.
We are partially supported by the Dutch Research Agency (NWO) MINGLE project and the organization of ACM Multimedia 2019.
