Developing a Consistent View on Emotion-Oriented Computing

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3869)


The network of excellence HUMAINE is currently making a co-ordinated, interdisciplinary effort to develop a consistent view on emotion-oriented computing. This overview paper proposes a “map” of the research area, distinguishing core technologies from application-oriented and psychologically oriented work. First results from the on-going research in the thematic workpackages are reported.
