Dear Marc and all,

Many thanks to you and Felix for this report that is really clear and it correctly reflects the results of our vote and the method that was choosen to select the mandatory requirements.
I have found the discussion regarding action tendencies very interesting and I personally think that they should be included in the final requirements set. If we want to have a strategic vision in designing this new Emotional language, this requirement could be a plus, particularly for applications that deal with the generation of emotional behavior.
I also think that the regulation requirement could be considered as mandatory, given its important link with the requirement describing multiple and complex emotions, as you correctly underline in your document. And if I remember well, this requirement, due to its average rate, was the first to be excluded from the “must” set, and it was put in a sort of “borderline” group.
Regarding the scales to be adopted, I also think that this discussion is premature at this stage and is out of the scope of this report. For generation aspects, I am a little bit in favour of quantitative scales, anyway I think that this topic should be deeply discussed once we will begin to design the specifications of the EmoML and try to fit them to some use cases.

Best,
Enrico

Oggetto: [EMOXG] Deliverable report published as first draft: Emotion Markup  Language: Requirements with Priorities

Dear all,

the last few weeks have shown little visible activity in this group, but
Felix Burkhardt and I have been working on the requirements document
that is intended to reflect the outcomes of our discussions during the
last few months, regarding mandatory vs. optional requirements for an
emotion markup language.

So here it is, as a first draft, for you to comment upon:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/emotion/XGR-requirements-20080429/

I kindly request that any comments to this document should be sent to
this list. I suggest that we allow for

        two weeks, i.e. until 13 May 2008

time for commenting on this draft. Comments expressed during this time
can be discussed and, if agreement can be reached, will be taken on
board. If no objections from group members are raised, the report will
be considered final by the above date.


This document gives us a pretty concrete starting point for thinking
about syntax now. I believe we should come to a conclusion about which
format to use (XML vs. RDF vs. OWL) in May, and start drafting a syntax
specification from June onwards.

Does this sound reasonable? Let's get back to work! :-)

Best regards,
Marc
