Focus Questions

To assure focused interaction, the workshop will specifically address the following four questions

1: Taxonomy of Circumstances Requiring Affective and Attitude User Modeling
Can we begin to develop a taxonomy of circumstances under which affective/attitude user modeling is critical or useful, and  identify a mapping between this taxonomy and the most appropriate level of modeling resolution?

2: Existing methods of Constructing Affective/Attitude User Models
What are the available means of constructing user affective/attitude models and what is the state of the art in applying these   means to accurately identify user's affective states, attitudes, personality traits and associated behavioral patterns?

3: Validation and Evaluation
What are the best means of evaluating the effectiveness of an affective/attitude user model?

4: Guidelines for model use
What are the possible ways of using an affective/attitude user model, and how can we map these uses onto the taxonomy of situations where affect/attitude modeling is important ?
