Constructing the science of social interaction 
*** Join our Mailing List ***

We are delighted to announce the second Virtual Social Interaction workshop in MediaCity (Manchester).  This workshop brings together researchers from all over the world, who use psychology, cognitive neuroscience computer science and digital technologies to understand, generate and model human social interactions.


Social interaction is at the core of being human, but we have only a limited understanding of the brain and cognitive mechanisms which allow interactions.  New computer technologies can help us measure, model and generate synthetic versions of human social behaviour without sacrificing the validity of the interaction.  The data we gain allows us to develop and test new psychological theories of social interaction, and to build more realistic and interactive social virtual worlds

 

This workshop will highlight new methods and new theories in the domain of social interaction, and work towards a scientific understanding of how people interact.
