SSPNet Summer School on Social Signal Processing

IIASS, Vietri Sul Mare (Italy) - June 3-7, 2013

The SSPNet Summer School on Social Signal Processing aims at providing an extensive and thorough introduction to this exciting field at the crossroad between psychology and computing science. The program will focus on the three main areas covered by Social Signal Processing: modelling, analysis and synthesis of nonverbal communication in human-human and human-machine interactions. In line with the interdisciplinary nature of the domain, the lectures will cover both computing and cognition science aspects.

The program ( includes the following three hours long units:

- Introduction to Social Signal Processing (A.Vinciarelli, U. of Glasgow and
Idiap Research Institute)
