Advances in Interaction Studies

Advances in Interaction Studies (AIS) provides a forum for researchers to present excellent scholarly work in a variety of disciplines relevant to the advancement of knowledge in the field of interaction studies. The book series accompanies the journal Interaction Studies: Social Behaviour and Communication in Biological and Artificial Systems.

The book series allows the presentation of research in the forms of monographs (that may be based on PhD thesis material) or edited collections of peer-reviewed material (that may be based on conferences relevant to the field), in English.

The series welcomes contributions that analyze social behaviour in humans and other animals, including the evolution of interaction and communication, as well as research into the design and synthesis of robotic, software, virtual and other artificial systems, including applications such as exploiting human-machine interactions for educational or therapeutic purposes. Fields of interest include but are not limited to: evolutionary biology, artificial intelligence, artificial life, robotics, human-robot interaction, human-computer interaction, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, computational neuroscience, cognitive modeling, ethology, social and biological anthropology, palaeontology, animal behaviour, and linguistics.
