We are proud to announce the 1st workshop on Standards in Emotion Modeling. This workshop focuses on the core of computational modeling of emotion, including emotion generation (causal factors), and the effects of emotion on cognition. The primary aim of the workshop is to emphasize the interplay between emotion psychology and computational modeling. Its focus is on:
· validating computational models of emotion with respect to their underlying psychological theory of emotion, and,
· comparing computational models of emotion to facilitate sharing results and working towards generic computational mechanisms of emotion.
In order to tackle these two challenges, this workshop brings together ambitious young researchers and veterans in the field for 5 full days. In addition to regular paper presentations, a significant part of the time is reserved for plenary discussions and working groups. We are proud to have confirmed participation of leading international scientists in computational modeling of emotion as well as emotion psychologists (see the website for a list). We invite potential participants to submit a paper.
