Research by Jonathan Gratch, Stacy Marsella, Ning Wang and Brooke Stankovic received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE 2009 International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction in Amsterdam. Their paper, Assessing the Validity of Appraisal-based Models of Emotion, describes an empirical study comparing the accuracy of competing computational models of emotion in predicting human emotional responses in naturalistic emotion-eliciting situations. The results find clear differences in models’ ability to forecast human emotional responses, and provide guidance on how to develop more accurate models of human emotion. The conference series on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction is the premier international forum for state of the art in research on affective and multi modal human-machine interaction and systems. Over seventy papers were presented.
