Abstract:Emotions and personality have received quite a lot of attention the last few years in research on embodied conversational agents. Attention is also increasingly being paid to matters of social psychology and interpersonal aspects, for work of our group). Given the nature of an embodied conversational agent�s main activity: 'conversation', we feel that interpersonal issues should be central in their design. We consider the case of tutoring systems in more depth and examine some of the interpersonal factors that need to be accounted for when building emotionally intelligent tutors.
