Computer-mediated communication systems known as collaborative virtual environments (CVEs) allow geographically separated individuals to interact verbally and nonverbally in a shared virtual space in real time. We discuss a CVE-based research paradigm that transforms (i.e., filters and modifies) nonverbal behaviors during social interaction. Because the technology underlying CVEs allows a strategic decoupling of rendered behavior from the actual behavior of the interactants, conceptual and… Expand
Transformed social interaction in mediated interpersonal communication
Over time, our mode of remote communication has evolved from written letters to telephones, email, internet chat rooms, and video-conferences. Similarly, virtual environments that utilize digitalExpand
Transformed social interaction, augmented gaze, and social influence in immersive virtual environments
Immersive collaborative virtual environments (CVEs) are simulations in which geographically separated individuals interact in a shared, three-dimensional, digital space using immersive virtualExpand
Effect of Behavioral Realism on Social Interactions Inside Collaborative Virtual Environments
TLDR
Results show that participants who embody the avatar with only a floating head and hands experienced greater social presence, self-presence, and interpersonal attraction than participants who embodied a full-bodied avatar with mapped hands. Expand
Mapping Social Interactions: The Science of Proxemics.

TLDR
It is argued that contemporary proxemics research provides psychology and neuroscience with a means to study social cognition and behavior as they naturally emerge and unfold in vivo. Expand
Multiple Personalities and the Proteus Effect in Collaborative Virtual Environments. A Wittgensteinian Viewpoint
TLDR
The intention is to provide further understanding of the relationship between the Proteus effects and the conceptual model of multiple virtual personalities interacting in CVE using the Wittgensteinian language games framework, and to suggest that the notions of a “virtual personality” and "virtual game grammar” may hopefully bring a refreshing approach to examining theProteus effect. Expand
Beyond Replication: Augmenting Social Behaviors in Multi-User Virtual Realities
TLDR
This paper designs three visual transformations for behavioral phenomena crucial to everyday social interactions: eye contact, joint attention, and grouping that can significantly increase social presence in multi-user environments and that the augmented experience appears more thought-provoking. Expand
Multimodal transformed social interaction
TLDR
A paradigm for studying multimodal and nonverbal communication in collaborative virtual environments (CVEs) called Transformed Social Interaction (TSI), in which a user's visual representation is rendered in a way that strategically filters selected communication behaviors in order to change the nature of a social interaction is introduced. Expand
Detecting digital chameleons
TLDR
How effective people were at explicitly detecting mimicking computer agents and the consequences of mimic detection in terms of social influence and interactional synchrony are examined. Expand
Injecting Nonverbal Mimicry with Hybrid Avatar-Agent Technologies: A Naïve Approach
TLDR
This work presents a naïve prototype, the "Mimicry Injector", that injects artificial mimicry in real-time virtual interactions and found that most participants did not detect the modification and did not have a significant impact on the perception of the communication. Expand

Gaze and task performance in shared virtual environments
TLDR
The data demonstrated that interactants in the rendered head movement condition rated a higher level of co-presence, liked each other more, looked at each other's heads more, and spoke for a lower percentage of time during the game, compared to the other two conditions. Expand
User embodiment in collaborative virtual environments
TLDR
This paper identifies a list of embodiment design issues including presence, location, identity, activity, availability, history of activity, viewpoint, actionpoint, gesture, facial expression, voluntary versus involuntary expression, degree of presence, reflecting capabilities, physical properties, active bodies, time and change.

Interpersonal Distance in Immersive Virtual Environments
TLDR
Results indicated that participants maintained greater distance from virtual humans when approaching their fronts compared to their backs, and gave more personal space to virtual agents who engaged them in mutual gaze. Expand

The chameleon effect: the perception-behavior link and social interaction.
TLDR
The authors suggest that the mechanism involved is the perception-behavior link, the recently documented finding that the mere perception of another's behavior automatically increases the likelihood of engaging in that behavior oneself. Expand

The Independent and Interactive Effects of Embodied-Agent Appearance and Behavior on Self-Report, Cognitive, and Behavioral Markers of Copresence in Immersive Virtual Environments
TLDR
Copresence was lowest when there was a large mismatch between the appearance and behavioral realism of an embodied agent, suggesting that assessing the impact of behavioral realism on copresence without taking into account the appearance of the embodied agent can lead to misleading conclusions.
