A Successful ‘Pop-Up’ Conference

As one of Dublin City University’s designated research centres, the CTTS was delighted to have showcased a ‘pop-up’ conference on Multimodality & Cyberpsychology on Saturday, November 24th, 2012.

In collaboration with the Media, Art, and Cyberpsychology Special Interest Group of the Psychology Society of Ireland, the event hosted a variety of talks concerning topics of: ethics, machine translation, eye tracking, cognition, eating disorders, online dating, reading, comprehension, usability, multimedia, multimodality, subtitling, intention, emotion, 3D movies, user experience, online therapy supports, and e-learning.

With delegates and presenters from all over Ireland and Europe representing universities, government institutions, mental health services, professional bodies, and eager students and researchers, the event highlighted the importance and value of interdisciplinary research that incorporates human factors of technology, with foci on cognitive and behavioural aspects, and wider contexts of ethics and education. It established increased interaction across faculties within the university and externally with other institutions in the context of the many shared research interests with approaches from many different disciplines, from cognitive science, to the arts and humanities.

The book of abstracts from the conference will be published online in mid-December.
