Dynamics of joint-action and social behavior: Theory, modeling and research

a one-day workshop with Michael Richardson (University of Cincinnati, USA), organized by Anna Kuhlen

Monday, 5 August 2013, 09.00–16.00
Venue: Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, HU Campus Nord, Philippstraße 13, House 2, Computerpool

Abstract

As an introduction to the dynamical systems approach to joint action, interpersonal coordination, and social and multi-agent activity, this workshop will cover the following: (i) fundamental concepts and implications of dynamical and complex systems theory for understanding joint action and social coordination; (ii) approaches to modeling joint action and multi-agent behavior as a dynamical system; and (iii) various methods of linear and nonlinear time-series analysis for uncovering the dynamics of joint action and interpersonal coordination (including relative phase, spectral analysis, phase space reconstruction, recurrence and cross-recurrence analysis, fractal and multi-fractal analysis). Each participant will gain practical experience by analyzing real-world data using MATLAB and will leave the workshop with numerous MATLAB software examples and turn-key analysis packages. Opportunities for participants to discuss and analyze their own data will also be provided.
