Monica Pereira, Noureddin Sadawi & Kate Hone
Users require conversational virtual characters to be socially and culturally aware in order to develop trust and relationship(s). This is dependent on the goal and setting of the interaction. In previous research It has been suggested that cultures that require high context (increased use of nonverbal signals) and low context (more direct verbal communication) during communication differ in their use of nonverbal displays. The aim of this paper is to investigate the following: 1) whether...

Here we present the results of a horizon scanning exercise that identified current and future challenges facing the teaching of ecology,...
