Meeting Description:

The University of Neuchâtel is founding a Center for Research on Social Interactions as part of its ongoing strategic development. The Center brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers who conduct detailed investigations of social interaction processes, focusing especially on their interpersonal, symbolic and institutional aspects.

Le CRIS - Centre de recherche sur les interactions sociales est un regroupement interdisciplinaire de chercheurs de l’Université de Neuchâtel qui étudient les processus d’interaction sociale, en privilégiant particulièrement leurs aspects interpersonnels, symboliques et institutionnels. Le CRIS poursuit trois objectifs :

• produire et promouvoir la recherche interdisciplinaire sur les interactions sociales
• contribuer à la formation de la relève de pointe dans l’optique d’une complémentarité disciplinaire et méthodologique, et
• profiler la recherche sur les processus d’interaction sociale en tant qu’axe neuchâtelois fort sur le plan national et international.

The opening of the Center will be celebrated by an inaugural conference that will take place on February 4, 2014, in the afternoon, 2 pm to 6 pm. The conference will consist of plenary talks by three eminent scientists: Simon Garrod (University of Glasgow), Tanya Stivers (UCLA), and Steve Walsh (Newcastle University).

The conference is free and open to the public, but we ask that attendees register in order to facilitate planning.
