COACT symposium

International symposium: Complexity of (inter)action

University of Oulu, Finland, 9-11 October 2014

In the Complexity of (inter)action symposium, we wished to explore complexity from diverse perspectives and focus on examining how social participants manage, coordinate and adapt to complexity, and display complexity socially to others, through skilled multimodal participation. We were also interested in studies that expand the notion of interactional complexity to include the participants’ histories and interactions across multiple timescales.

The symposium had four invited speakers:

  • Monika Büscher, Department of Sociology, Lancaster University
  • Trine Heinemann, Department of Design and Communication, University of Southern Denmark
  • Eric Laurier, School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh
  • Maurice Nevile, Department of Design and Communication, University of Southern Denmark
