|Meeting Description:||TiGeR 2013 is the combined meeting of the 10th International Gesture Workshop (GW) and the 3rd Gesture and Speech in Interaction (GESPIN) conference, and is hosted by the Tilburg center for Cognition and Communication (TiCC) of Tilburg University, The Netherlands.
During TiGeR 2013, we aim to bring together researchers working on empirical and technical approaches to gesture production and comprehension.
The meeting will contain a special theme-session on theoretical and computational models of gesture and speech production. During this special session, we will discuss and compare competing models of the speech-gesture interface, both from an empirical and a technical perspective, with the following invited speakers:
Sotaro Kita (University of Birmingham, UK)
Stefan Kopp (Bielefeld University, Germany)
Catherine Pelachaud (CNRS, France)
Jan de Ruiter (Bielefeld University, Germany)
Two other themes that we want to highlight during TiGeR 2013 are cross-cultural differences in gesture production/comprehension and language acquisition and gesture. These topics will be addressed by our invited speakers:
Nick Enfield (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, The Netherlands)
Danielle Matthews (University of Sheffield, UK)
The registration fee for TiGeR 2013 will be 50 euros (including lunch), excluding the TiGeR social program and dinner (which we expect to cost about 50 euros as well).
We are planning to organize a special issue in Gesture on models of speech-gesture production; a separate call for papers will be issued in the summer.
