Abstract and Keywords

Writing involves complex affective and cognitive processes highly influenced by the environments wherein we write, which are undergoing critical change. Today writing is typically performed using digital devices connected to the Internet, enabling writers to interact with content and with other people in new ways. This increased interconnectedness offers new opportunities as well as challenges. This chapter proposes a new type of tool, Reflective Writing Studios (RWS), which can be used to study writing phenomena in an encompassing way, taking into account the writer’s physical and social surroundings and his or her emotions, mental states, and cognitive processes. The chapter introduces the architecture for an affect-aware multimodal interaction system, its components, and their evaluation. Two types of data are used: structured information about the activity and multimodal sensor data from the writer and the environment. This framework opens new avenues for research in terms of multimodal data collection and interpretation.

Keywords: writing, cognitive technologies, affective computing, ubiquitous computing, reflection
