DESCRIPTION:

(Tele)presence is being examined by a growing international community of scholars in diverse fields from computer science to philosophy, but the concept has particular relevance to communication. This event, co-sponsored by the Information Systems division of the International Communication Association (ICA), the International Society for Presence Research (ISPR), and the Media Interface & Network Design (M.I.N.D.) Labs, will introduce and review the state-of-the-art in presence research, theory, organizations and resources in a hybrid format that combines traditional presentations, multimedia posters and demonstrations, and informal discussion and socializing.

The session will begin with two traditional format presentations, by Matthew Lombard and Frank Biocca, which will introduce the concept of presence, summarize the history, current status, and potential future of presence research and theory, and outline opportunities for communication scholars to get more information about developments related to presence and the presence community, and participate in and obtain funding for their own work in the area.

Following these more formal presentations, fourteen papers representing the latest presence research, and the papers’ authors, will be introduced. Each paper will then be presented informally in a modified, multimedia poster session format. Presenters will create and post vivid visual summaries of their projects and (in many cases) supplement these with multimedia displays and demonstrations via laptop computer. Rather than simply being available to answer questions about the projects, the authors will make brief, informal presentations of their work to small groups of audience members attending the session. A variety of (free!) refreshments will be provided.

The presentations, discussions, and socializing will continue in the same room beyond the officially scheduled session time, and then over dinner (location to be announced at session).

The papers and their authors/presenters are listed below.

Pictures from the dinner that followed the panel are here.
