Meeting Description:

‘Multimodal Communication: Language, Performance and Digital Media’
Event dates: Thursday 2 to Friday 3 May 2013
Venue: CCB, Lisbon (http://www.ccb.pt)

The CCB are co-producers of the conference and associate partners of the TKB project, running at the Centre of Linguistics (CLUNL) of FCSH-UNL.

The Conference is organized in the framework of the TKB research project conclusion (http://tkb.fcsh.unl.pt) and aims to: present the results and software tools developed during the TKB project; provide a multidisciplinary forum for researchers from different disciplines and artists interested in the documentation of Performing Arts (with a focus on contemporary theatrical dance and Performance), as well as in issues of multimodality in human communication and in human-computer interaction, particularly regarding video annotation tools and collaborative platforms for cultural heritage. It is organized by the FCSH and the FCT of Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal.

The event wishes to bring together contemporary artists and researchers from a broad range of academic disciplines, working within different theoretical and methodological paradigms in a creative, internationally oriented, and stimulating atmosphere. The importance of multimodal communication and creativity is now generally recognised by researchers from either the Humanities, Information Technologies or Cognitive Science. This conference therefore offers an opportunity to present and learn about research findings concerning human behaviour and agency in different types of communication and their cognitive, cultural, narrative, technological, social, textual or discourse functions.
