Workshop overview

Affective states such as personality traits, attitudes, moods, and emotions play a crucial role in people’s everyday performance at work. As software systems are designed and used by human beings which can be characterized by emotions, the aim of Affective Computing is to study the development of software systems and devices that can recognize, interpret, process, and exploit human affects, feelings, emotion, attitudes and personalities. Several requirements engineering tasks include acceptance and negotiation activities in which emotions play a crucial role. From requirements elicitation to negotiation, from modeling to prioritization, different emotions arise and evolve for stakeholders with different personality traits—including the final users. Currently, contributions in this area lack a dedicated forum. This workshop aims at creating an international, sustainable community where researchers and practitioners interested in the role of affect in requirements engineering can meet, present, and discuss their work-in-progress. The workshop provides an opportunity to “infect” the requirements engineering community, particularly the one interested in human aspects, with ideas from affective computing. The workshop fosters contributions about empirical studies, theoretical models, as well as tools for supporting affective computing in requirements engineering
