LIRIS Children Spontaneous Facial Expression Video Database

The Database

We are presenting a novel emotional database that contains movie clip / dynamic images of 12 ethnically diverse children. This unique database contains spontaneous / natural facial expression of children in diverse settings with diverse recording scenarios showing six universal or prototypic emotional expressions (happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, disgust and fear). Children are recorded in constraint free environment (no restriction on head movement, no restriction on hands movement, free sitting setting, no restriction of any sort) while they watched specially built / selected stimuli. This constraint free environment allowed us to record spontaneous / natural expression of children as they occur. The database has been validated by 22 human raters. Details of recording parameters are presented in the publications.
