CALLAS evaluated as "Good to excellent" after 2nd Review with the European Commission

The CALLAS 2nd Review took place at Teesside University in Middlesbrough on January 28-29, 2009, where the progress made in the project during the period M13 to M24 was illustrated to the Commission and to three external Reviewers.
(pictures taken at the event are in C³: the CALLAS Community Club members pages here).

The CALLAS Consortium is now pleased to announce that the official Review Report received from the Commission confirms that CALLAS has fully achieved its objectives and technical goals for the period and has even exceeded expectations, reaching the maximum score in the evaluation period.

CALLAS entered its 3rd year of operations on November 1st 2008 (M25).
Following reviewers' recommendations, future activities will particularly focus on
  • theoretical aspects of emotion capturing, modelling and fusing
  • validation of components through quasi-experiments and natural observations
  • demonstration of the progress beyond the current state-of-the-art
  • validation of the showcases applications to complete loop between emotional expression and digital adaptations.
