The course consists of two introductory lectures. One surveys the field and its history. The second will discuss core concepts (emotion, signals, computational modeling etc.). After that the lectures will be continued by some hands-on workshop sessions and by presentations of the students presenting selected chapters from The Oxford Handbook of Affective Computing and Emotion-Oriented Systems (The Humaine Handbook) and other sources
The assessment is based on the presentation by the students and a short survey paper which they will write individually on a specific topic in which they delve into recent developments by sampling articles from the Transactions on Affective Computing Journal or conferences in the field - such as Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction.
