Affective computing is a young field of research that interconnects many different domains and has a range of important applications. However, little attention has been given to the employment of affective computing in collaborative networks. This paper examines the possible challenges for ‘injecting’ emotion-awareness into collaborative networks with a view to improving the effectiveness, motivation and naturalness in the communication between their members. Moreover, by observing the state of the art in affective computing, we present certain needs and benefits (why) as well as possible approaches (how) to the application of affective computing technologies in collaborative networks, with the focus on affective interaction.
