ILHAIRE means:

Incorporating Laughter into Human Avatar Interactions: Research and Experiments.

It is a European project (FP7) that started in 2011.

Laughter is a significant feature of human communication. ILHAIRE objectives are to help the scientific and industrial community to bridge the gap between knowledge on human laughter and its use by avatars, thus enabling sociable conversational agents to be designed, using natural-looking and natural-sounding laughter.
