Social Signals in Interaction between Humans and Artificial Agents

This work package focuses on the interpersonal and contextual (i.e. situation and task-related) aspects of turn- taking and floor management in conversational encounters. In this work package we build models of turn-taking and floor management for artificial conversational agents that display appropriate behaviors when they are involved in a conversation.
