Affective Computing Reading Group

This reading group focuses on papers that study human communicative behaviors, affective states, and behavioral traits. We read recent and seminal published work in venues such as IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing, ACII, ICMI, HRI and UbiComp. Below is a meeting schedule and assigned readings.
