Title: A review on the significance of color and light in affective

Abstract: Light and color are omnipresent environmental factors that influence the human being. Therefore, light and color issues have to be considered especially significant in human-computer interaction (HCI) and fundamental in affective computing. Affective computing is an interdisciplinary research field that makes efforts to integrate issues dealing with emotions and computers. It seems important to provide an updated review on the significance of light and color in affective computing. In this sense, the relation between HCI/affective computing and the emotions affected by light and color are introduced in first place. Indeed, a considerable number of studies and experiments offer empirical results on the topic. In addition, the color models generally used in affective computing are briefly described. The review on the usage of color and light in affective computing includes detailed characteristics of methods and recent research trends. The study of the importance of light and color from demographic, gender, and cultural aspects complements the paper.
Keywords: color; light; affective computing; human-computer interaction
