...edit news...Welcome to the FOAP website,

to the website of the VIDI-project: Functions of Audiovisual Prosody (FOAP). The general aim of this project is to get more insight into functions of verbal and visual cues in spoken conversations. The results of the project are or will be relevant to improve our understanding of the pragmatics of spoken language and to improve the naturalness and efficiency of embodied conversational agents. The different substudies of the project follow a specific research procedure. The FOAP project is conducted within the Research Programme of the C&C section of the Arts Faculty at Tilburg University. It is sponsored by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and Tilburg University, and runs for 5 years (2003-2007).
