WELCOME!!! The Science of Reading Human Faces

 

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 1st World Congress on Facial Expression of Emotion (WCFEE 2014), which will be held in Porto (Portugal) October, 9-11, 2014 under the auspices of the University Fernando Pessoa (UFP, http://ufp.pt) The congress is organized by Facial Emotion Expression Lab (FEELab/UFP) and FACE - Centre of Excellence on Facial Expression of Emotion at Hospital-School University Fernando Pessoa.

WCFEE 2014 is a scientific congress during which new research is being presented and discussed among scientists and practitioners. Our aim is to offer a program of interest to scholars as well as practitioners, a program founded upon research results as well as evidence from the field "The Science of Reading Human Faces". Our efforts should provide an excellent opportunity for participants to interact, by exchanging and debating new directions in the broad area of emotion (Health, Forensic, Educational, Organizational, and Safety).

We are delighted to welcome you to Porto.

Porto, also known as Oporto (English) is the second largest city in Portugal (220,000  inhabitants) and the capital of Portugal’s northern region. Oporto was distinguished as best European  destination in 2012 by the European Consumers Choice. The city of Oporto, built along the hillsides  overlooking the mouth of the Douro River in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European urban centers, and registered as a World Heritage Site.

From across the Rio Douro at sunset, romantic Porto looks like a pop-up town. A colourful tumbledown dream with medieval relics, soaring bell towers, extravagant baroque churches and stately beaux-arts buildings piled on top of one another, illuminated by streaming shafts of sun. If you squint you might be able to make out the open windows, the narrow lanes and staircases zigzagging to nowhere. The city of Porto leads the top 10 European destinations from Lonely Planet  and was elected the Best European Destination 2014 by the European Consumers Choice. It is a highly atmospheric place that has become known for its monuments by renowned architects (Gustave Eiffel's Dona Maria Bridge, Nicolau Nasoni's Clerigos Tower or Siza Vieira's Serralves Museum), Porto is one of the last undiscovered European metropolises and that's one of the reasons 1st World Congress on Facial Expression of Emotion is waiting to receive you!

Portuguese speak excellent English and are welcoming to visitors.

We are planning an exciting congress that is not to be missed and hope that you will make definitive plans to participate.Your contribution is important to us, and all submissions are handled via our homepage. We very much look forward to meeting you in Porto.

Bem-vindo!

Welcome! Emotionally!
