Interactive computer programs that participate in online communities provide novel opportunities to study the genesis and the influence of collective emotions in online communication. This chapter presents application scenarios for such interactive affective systems and, based on those, the approach to interactive studies of collective emotions. These interactive tools extend the scope of analysis both qualitatively, i.e., by engaging users directly, and quantitatively, i.e., by reaching out to users who normally remain silent online. An overview of components for implementing computational awareness of collective emotions in the context of affective dialog management, from affect detection to user modeling, including relevant experimental results, is provided.

Keywords:   interactive affective systems, e-communities, intelligent agents, interactive studies, computational awareness, dialog systems, computational modeling
