There was clear agreement among the participants that we would like to continue working as a subgroup of the MMI working group. Dates of next meeting were agreed. Basic approach proposed for dealing with scale values was agreed, but some questions regarding discrete scales are left open.
Marc explains the 3 possibilites for the future of EMOXG (stop, continue as its own working group, join the multimodal interaction as a sub-group)
all the participants of today's meeting agree on the 3rd option (join MM interaction as a sub-group)
Marc will ask in the mailing list if there are other opinions on this issue

<marc> ask the participants who can come
to the meeting in
<marc> Original suggestions in email: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xg-emotion/2008Jul/0008.html
Marc:presents the different issues regarding scales specification: numerical and verbal
Enrico:proposes to restrict the verbal values to 5. Problem of subjectivity arises with using higher number of verbal scales
Instead of verbal discrete scales (using words), it would also be possible to use abstract discrete scales, such as:
<marc> unipolar scale:
Some conclusions were made: we tend to prefer 5 point scales.
Open issue to be discussed: use abstract scale or linguistic scale.
<marc> XML discussion continued, looking at concrete suggestions from email:
<marc> <dimensions set="Arousal-and-Valence">
<marc> <arousal value="very much" confidence="0.9"/>
<marc> <valence value="slightly positive" confidence="0.3"/>
(Core 4 similar to Core 3)
Regarding sub-element of Core 3, 4: need to verify the values (eg appraisal dimensions) from a repository
<marc> <action-tendencies set="Frijda">
<marc> <approach activation="(unipolar scale)"/>
<marc> <avoidance activation="(unipolar scale)"/>
<marc> <being-with activation="(unipolar scale)"/>
Core 5: for consistency, we should stick to "value" as an attribute name rather than "activation".
<marc> <intensity value="(unipolar scale)"/>
<marc> <intensity value="0.1" confidence="0.8"/>
<marc> <category set="everyday" name="boredom" confidence="0.1"/>
Core 7: Intensity should be a separate element rather than an attribute
Confidence (Meta 1):use same type of scale. Which elements should allow for a "confidence" attribute is left for a future discussion.
