Digital Interaction: Where Are We Going?

ECONA is an interuniversity center drawing on the expertise of teaching and researching staff from eight Italian Universities. It is a permanent organization - open to all academic contributions - set up to provide a focus for the study of cognitive processing. ECONA involves a network of academics within a variety of disciplines such as Psychology, Computer Science, Engineering, Maths, Physics, Biology, Medicine, Economics and Architecture. Its main goal is to promote multidisciplinary projects in several fields of research including human-computer interaction, psychology of cognitive processes, machine learning, natural language processing, psychophysiology and neuropsychology, modeling of mental processes.
