Social interaction is at the core of being human, but the scientific study of social interaction is challenging. We have only a limited understanding of the brain and cognitive mechanisms which allow interactions. New technologies can help us probe and measure human social behaviour without sacrificing the validity of the interaction. The data we gain allows us to develop and test new theories and models of the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying human sociality. This workshop will highlight new methods and new theories in the domain of social interaction, and work towards a scientific understanding of how people interact.
