The Amsterdam Interdisciplinary Centre for Emotion (AICE) is a virtual centre for emotion scholars in Amsterdam. We meet fortnightly to discuss emotion research and host talks by local, national, and interactional speakers. At AICE, we study emotions using a range of methods and approaches, and we are open to the different approaches taken in diverse disciplines. Key points of focus in our research are nonverbal communication (facial and vocal signals), emotional experience, cultural similarities and differences, and embodiment and mimicry. To find out more about our work, please look at the Research and Members sections.
The research conducted within AICE is internationally embedded in two organisations: CERE (Consortium of European Research on Emotion) and ISRE (International Society of Research on Emotion). AICE members generally present their research at these conferences.
