About IWIC

The main theme of this workshop is intercultural collaboration, from both technical and socio-cultural perspectives. Topics will include collaboration support (such as natural language processing, Web, and Internet technologies), social psychological analyses of intercultural interaction, and case studies from activists working to increase mutual understanding in our multicultural world.

This is a unique workshop in a world where physical borders disappear rapidly and people and cultures are more and more on the move and in contact. The workshop featured three prominent invited speakers:

  • Christiane D. Fellbaum (Department of Psychology, Princeton University)
  • Yumiko Mori (NPO Pangaea)
  • Gary Olson (School of Information, University of Michigan)
