This volume contains a selection of studies from the Collaborative Research Center "Situated Artificial Communicators." The contributions focus on different aspects of human-human and human-machine interaction in situations which closely model everyday workplace demands. The interdisciplinary approach integrates theory, description, and experimentation with simulation and evaluation.
