Virtual Gestures: Analysing the Role of Embodiment and Nonverbal Behavior in Avatar-Mediated Communication
Gary Bente
University of Cologne, Germany

The lecture addresses basic conceptual and methodological problems concerning the implementation of nonverbal communication channels in computer-mediated communication and human-computer interaction. An avatar research platform, the so called Virtual Communication Environment (VCE), will be introduced that allows for basic research on nonverbal behavior and for the evaluation of avatars and embodied conversational agents in different application scenarios. Specific research paradigms will be described using examples from our current research.

Sponsored by the Center for Lifelong Learning & Design.
