@inproceedings { ribeiro14, abstract = {This paper presents work developed by the authors dur- ing the last three years on interactive scenarios featuring expressive robots that embody intelligent virtual agents (IVAs). Our work has focused on understanding how a robotic character’s behaviour can be modelled and expressed in a body-independent form while providing users with continuous interactions. It has contributed to both the LIREC1 and current EMOTE2 EU FP7 Projects.}, keywords = {Intelligent Virtual Agents;}, title = {From Thalamus to Skene: High-level behaviour planning and managing for mixed-reality characters}, year = {2014}, author = {Tiago Ribeiro and Eugenio Tullio and Patricia Alves-Oliveira and Ana Paiva} }
