Dear all,

 From what I can recall, it has been decided that any visual and 
acoustic expression of emotion be specified outside of EMOXG. there 
exist already some standards, such as MPEG-4, H-anim, or widely used 
annotation scheme, FACS. In the ECA community there are quite a lot of 
work to develop a 'standard' representation language for behaviors (and 
another one for communicative functions).

best,
Catherine
