About Local Interest Groups

Our LIGs offer a a public space for announcements and for providing content to the public in a private working space, accessible only to LIG members collaborating through a mailing list for discussions related to the LIG.

LIG Germany

In the tradition of researchers dealing with emotions in theory and application, there is a strong community in emotion and affective research in Germany. Based on various projects and activities like HUMAINE and different DFG founded projects the acitvities in the field were strengthened. As we might know, a prosperous development is grounded on an active communication between researches and disciplines. Therefore, we (in particular the chairs: Ronald Böck and Björn Schuller) welcome all researchers related to emotions and affective computing from Germany and those who have strong relations to the German research community. We encourage all to actively participate on the LIG, sharing ideas, start discussion, announcing events, etc.

About LIG UK
The UK has a growing body of people working in the maturing field of Affective Computing. This site is set up to provide an opportunity for connecting academics, postdoctoral researchers, PhD students and industry people working in the field in various parts of the UK. The spring board for LIG UK has been the series of events titled ‘Affective Computing and Social Signal Processing in the UK’ (AC@UK) that took place in September 2012 at the University of Nottingham, and subsequently on 19 December 2013 at Queen Mary University of London. These events demonstrated the importance and the potential of being connected. This is therefore a great time to get to know each other better, and start new connections and collaborations within the UK!
