    The seventh Audio-Visual Emotion Challenge and workshop AVEC 2017 was held in conjunction with ACM Multimedia'17. This year, the AVECseries addresses two distinct sub-challenges: emotion recognition and depression detection. The Affect Sub-Challenge is based on a novel dataset of human-human interactions recorded 'in-the-wild', whereas the Depression Sub-Challenge is based on the same dataset as the one used in AVEC 2016, with human-agent interactions. In this summary, we mainly describe participation and its conditions.
