LIBM 2008 - First International Workshop on Laughter in Interaction and Body Movement
Laughter takes a great role in leading a social life for humans. It not only comes out as just a physiological phenomenon, but is ingeniously designed and created as a resource for constructing a social relationship or bringing about smooth communication. Social laughter cannot be created by a single person but by a collaborative activity among participants in a conversation. Furthermore, configuration and body movements of the participants also comprise the essential factors of laughter besides linguistic ones.
