Summary of the Workshop Affective Interaction with Avatars @ Ambient Intelligence 2015

Abstract

The workshop Affective Interaction with Avatars was held at the 2015 Ambient Intelligence conference, in Athens, Greece, during November 11. The workshop focused on the affective interaction with Avatars, also known as Embodied Conversational Agents. This technology is increasingly used in the area of Ambient Assisted Living to provide natural interfaces for elderlies. Several aspects of affective interaction (e.g recognition of the emotional state of the user, modelling of the agent’s behaviour, and feedback via animated facial and/or bodily expressions) will be discussed during the workshop. There were four presentations and twelve participants from seven countries joining an open discussion.
