Decision making is the cognitive process leading to the selection of a course of action among variations; indeed, decision making is said to be a psychological construct, depending on the individual or individuals. Although being an important factor in individuals every day life, emotions are many times forgotten in the development of systems to be used by persons. In this paper we present a context aware model of emotions that can be used to design intelligent agents endowed with emotional capabilities that can be used to simulate group decision making processes. Our experiments show that agents endowed with emotional awareness are able to achieve agreements more rapidly.
