Personality and emotions shape our daily lives by having a strong 
influence on our preferences, decisions and behaviour in general. Hence, 
personalized systems that want to adapt to end users need to be aware of 
the user’s personality and emotions to perform well.
Recently, there have been extensive studies on the role of personality 
on user preferences, gaming styles and learning styles. Furthermore, 
some studies showed that it is possible to extract personality 
information about a user without annoying questionnaires, by analyzing 
the publicly available user’s social media feeds. Also, the affective 
computing community has developed sophisticated techniques that allow 
for accurate and unobtrusive emotion detection. Such affective 
information can be used in various personalized systems like recommender 
In recent years, emotions and personality have shown to play an 
important role in various aspects of recommender systems, such as 
implicit feedback, contextual information, affective content labeling, 
cold-start problem, diversity, cross-domain recommendations, group 
recommendations etc. With the development of robust techniques for the 
unobtrusive acquisition of emotions (e.g. from various modalities, such 
as video or physiological sensors) and personality (e.g. from social 
media) the time is right to take advantage of these possibilities to 
collect massive datasets and improve recommender systems.
The focus section of IxD&A aims at sharing research papers discussing 
innovative opportunities and challenges on the usage of affect and 
personality to improve personalized systems.
