There is growing interest about personalizing a computer’s responses according to a user’s affective states (emotions). This is particularly useful for learning, health care, and entertainment systems. However, systems able to recognize, understand, and respond to human affect are still designed and developed from scratch and the experience from their implementation is rarely documented, resulting in forcing developers to “re-invent the wheel” each time. This paper presents an approach to record the design knowledge related to affective systems in the form of patterns, aiming to develop a pattern language for them.
