W3C Workshop on Emotion Markup Language
— Presentation Guideline
Focus of the workshop
The workshop goal is to get feedback from the community on the current
EmotionML specification, especially on the following issues:
- Is the current list of recommended vocabularies scientifically
sound and defendable? Should descriptions be added, removed, or
- Does the specification have sufficient expressive power? Can it
represent what people need to represent?
- Is EmotionML easy enough to use, or should the syntax be changed
somehow to avoid any confusions etc.?
We wish to emphasize that the focus of the workshop is to identify
use cases and requirements, not discuss any specific
solutions or implementations.
Developing standards that will address the use cases and requirements
is a follow-on process that will take place within the appropriate
Construction of the workshop
Participation of all attendees is crucial to the success of a
workshop, so we designed the workshop to have the following sessions
and let all the participants use enough time for group discussion.
- An introduction session which explains overview of EmotionML and its applicaitions (Session2)
- Two sessions on emotion theories (Session3, 4)
- Two sessions on use css of EmotionML (Session5, 6)
- Breakout sessions and reports from them (Session7, 8)
- Summarization to prioritize use cases/requirements and identify potential extensions of EmotionML (Session9)
Note to each presenter
- Please do not use large amounts of text on your slides, instead,
use your slides to present examples with figures/videos. Also please
use your time to focus on explaining, using examples wherever
possible, and avoid giving too much background information. Remember
your presentation time is strictly limited to 20min.
- Attendees are expected to read the position paers and
presentations on the Workshop Agenda page
before arriving at the conference. All the presentations are
collected and published on the Workshop site.
Vote on use cases and requirements (afternoon break on day2)
During the afternoon break (15:30-16:00) on the second day, we will do
a vote on use cases and requirements proposed at the workshop so that
we can prioritize the use cases and requirements to identify potential
language extensions during the summarization session (session9).
Each person is encouraged to vote on proposed use cases using 10 points.
A person can give all the 10 points to a specific use case.
Summarization session (session9)
The final "Summarization" session will be led by a moderator who
will guide discussions to prioritize use cases and identify potential
new languages and language extensions.
