This workshop brings together junior and senior researchers from various disciplines, e.g. linguistics, computer science or neuroscience, working on the investigation of embodied communicative behavior in multiple modalities, such as speech, manual and head gestures or eye gaze. In this context, 'mapping' may be understood in terms of, for instance:

  • systematically recording, documenting, annotating, visualizing and reconstructing the interactive dynamics of multimodal dialogue (enlarging the scope from manual gestures to the entire body including body posture, torso and head movements, eye-gaze, etc.),
  • embodied conceptual structures and construal operations assumed to drive communicative action and multimodal acts/performances, 
  • neural correlates and brain activation patterns,
  • establishing behavioral/interactional patterns and time-elastic multimodal clusters.
