Virtual human representation and communication in VLNet

T.K. Capin, H. Noser, D. Thalmann, I. Sunday Pandzic, N.M. Thalmann
1997 IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications  
Realism depends on a believable appearance and simulation of the virtual world and also implies a natural representation of participants.  ...  This representation includes s a visual embodiment of the user, s a means of interacting with the world, and s a means of feeling various attributes of the world using the senses.  ...  We are grateful to Patrick Keller for his remarkable help in designing the VLNet scenes and producing images.  ...

Representation and communication in information systems — A speech act based approach [chapter]

Paul Johannesson
1994 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose a unifying framework based on speech act theory, which reconciliates the representation and communication roles of information systems.  ...  For this purpose, we propose a speech act based formalism for describing the structure of communicative action.

In section 4, we focus on the model view of information systems and present a logic based approach to conceptual modelling.  ...

Media transformations for the representation and communication of multimedia production activities [chapter]

S. J. Morris
1998 Designing Effective and Usable Multimedia Systems  
A set of transformation representation rules provides the framework for succinct communication between production participants.  ...  This communication can serve both a descriptive function, describing events as the basis for design rationale, or a prescriptive function outlining detailed stages before they are activated.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The author acknowledges gratefully the overall guidance and assistance of Anthony Finkelstein and the financial assistance of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council of  ...

Form and function in the representation of speech prosody

D.J. Hirst
2005 Speech Communication  
The way in which prosody contributes to meaning is still, today, a poorly understood process corresponding to a mapping between two levels of representation, for neither of which there is any general consensus  ...  The resulting annotation is under-determined by the IFannotation, but defining mapping rules between representations of function and representation of form could provide an interesting means of establishing  ...  , Japan for Speech Prosody 2004.  ...

The mental representation of sounds in speech sound disorders

Soujanya Pathi, Prakash Mondal
2021 Humanities and Social Sciences Communications  
We argue that the PR is to be understood in terms of a phonological base that holds information about a segment's acoustic structure, and which interacts with other levels in the speech sound system in  ...  The interface acts as a mediating system mapping sound representations onto articulatory instructions for the actual production of sounds.  ...  A system of symbols and representations, PRs are assumed to become more nuanced with age.  ...

Geometrical diagrams as representation and communication: a functional analytic framework

Jehad Alshwaikh
2010 Research in Mathematics Education  
Adopting a multimodality social semiotics approach, I consider diagrams as a semiotic mode of representation and communication which enable us to construct mathematical meaning.  ...  Mathematics is a multimodal discourse, where different modes of representation and communication are used, such as (spoken and written) language, algebraic notations, visual forms and gestures.  ...  available to them and their realization in specific representational and communicational acts (signs).  ...

Linguistic Representations in Selected Presidential Concession Speeches

Ayo Osisanwo, Emmanuel Chinaguh
2020 Athens Journal of Mass Media and Communications  
A Plea to Fight on, and Benediction. More specifically, the study reveals the actual act of concession to be a Verbalisation in a clause.  ...  The paper concludes that the ideational reading of a concession speech transcends yielding to bringing closure to an election, and includes resetting post-election narrative, renewing tarnished image,  ...  So SFL, in this way, implies that language is a set of systems that each offers a different set of meanings based on the context.  ...

Knowledge Representation in Virtual Teams: A Perspective Approach for Synthetic Worlds [chapter]

Giacomo Fiumara, Dario Maggiorini, Alessandro Provetti, Laura A. Ripamonti
2010 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
We address it from the point of view of "virtual worlds" and developed a prototypal solution that facilitates the cooperative building/sharing of knowledge representation.  ...  Thanks to ICT, new organizational forms are emerging that keep the pace of an increasingly demanding competitive environment.  ...  This means that not only data and information systems should be integrated, but also -and perhaps mainly -social systems and social networks.  ...

Communicative process in the emergency department between nursing staff and patients: social representations

Adriana Valongo Zani, Sonia Silva Marcon, Vera Lúcia Pamplona Tonete, Cristina Maria Garcia de Lima Parada
2014 Online Brazilian Journal of Nursing  
Method: A qualitative approach based on the Theory of Social Representation was used. The sample was formed by 40 subjects; 20 nurses and 20 patients.  ...  Discussion: The representations obtained were quite similar, especially when considering the difficulties of the communication process, and restricted when reducing it to guidance and information.  ...  Moreover, it favors the collecting of information through individual talks, which reveal structural conditions, value systems, norms and symbols and it transmits, through a spokesman, the representations  ...
