ESR Samuel Navas Medrano will present his research ‘Deictic Communication across Distances: Visualising Remote Pointing Gestures on Mobile Devices’ at the 32nd British Human Computer Interaction Conference in Belfast. Details of the Conference Programme and Samuel’s presentation are available at HCI2018
At a recent event for prospective PhD students and current post-docs, ESR Merlijn Breunesse shared her experience of being a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow on the DCOMM Grant. The event, joining organised by the Freidrich-Schiller-Universität Jena and KoWi (Kooperationsstelle EU der Wissenschaftsorganisationen), considered ‘Research in Europe’ and funding mechanisms.
ESR Merlijn Breunesse and her colleague, Barthe Bloom, have had a poster accepted for the 20th International Congress of Linguists 2018 to be held in Cape Town in July. The Abstract for “The role of (inter)subjectification in the development of the Norwegian preproprial article into the psychologically distal demonstrative” -can be viewed here
ESR Emanuela Todisco recently presented her research in Cadiz, Spain. Hosted by the Universitat de les Illes Ballears, Spain, her research (with PI Professor Pedro Guijarro Fuentes) was presented at the XXXVI AESLA International Conference. A sample of 100 simultaneous bilinguals is being recruited to conduct a pioneering experiment focusing on the adult production of demonstratives. For more information read the Abstract at AESLA2018
ESR Merlijn Breunesse (PI Professor Holger Diessel) hosted by the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Germany has had a paper, “A typology of clause-combining demonstratives”, accepted for the Workshop: Discourse Functions of Demonstratives in Oslo in June of this year. An abstract is available here: “A typology of clause-combining demonstratives”
Enabling remote deictic communication with mobile devices: an elicitation study
ESR Samuel Navas Medrano (PI Professor Christian Kray), hosted by the University of Münster, recently presented his paper at the 19th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services.
Beyond verbal communication: Gestures and eye-gaze connections
ESR Emanuela Todisco (PI Professor Pedro Guijarro-Fuentes), hosted by the University of the Balearic Islands, will give a talk at the International Symposium on Monolingual and Bilingual Speech in Crete – 4-8 September 2017
… who won a best project award during his recent attendance at the 5th Computer Vision and Machine Learning Summer School
The 13 Early Stage Researchers presented their research at the ‘Language as a form of action’ Conference at CNR, Rome.
The aim of the conference was to approach gesture and sign language research in an interdisciplinary way by bringing together researchers working on these topics from the fields of linguistics, neuroscience, developmental psychology, developmental robotics, philosophy, and other related disciplines. The conference explored the concept of “language” in its full complexity, i.e., by considering the interaction of vocal and manual (including non-manual features) modalities in spoken languages as well as in signed languages.
