Collaborative Goals

The collaborative goals of the Multimodal Communication Group are to gather regularly to share methods and discuss data, bringing the skills and knowledge of our diverse disciplines to bear on questions of mutual interest. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the field, we provide a forum for students in each institution interested in these areas to learn about the potential scope of the field.
