“The Science of Miscommunication Applied to FL Contexts” by Saul Albert (Loughborough University, UK)
“The Science of Miscommunication Applied to FL Contexts” by Professor Saul Albert (Loughborough University, UK)
In this unique 40-minute interactive workshop Professor Saul Albert will provide attendees with hands-on training on miscommunication in social interaction. The workshop will begin by providing background information into key theories, concepts, and empirical findings from modern investigations into social interaction and (mis)communication. In the second part of the session, Professor Albert will offer participants the opportunity to explore the ways in which people’s preconceived notions can affect critical communicative interactions in forensic contexts such as 999/911 emergency calls. Given the interactive nature of this special workshop, the size of attendance will be limited. Placement will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis.
All interested attendees are requested to complete a pre-workshop questionnaire by October 1st. The information provided in this survey will be used to tailor the workshop to attendee needs and specific forensic interests.

Professor Saul Albert is a lecturer in Social psychology at Loughborough University (UK). His research explores the technology of social interaction using conversational AI. In 2017, he was awarded his PhD for his work in the Cognitive Science Research Group in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London. Between 2017 and 2019, he then completed a postdoc in Psychology and Computer Science at Tufts University. The focus of his work was to investigate the methodological fusion of conversation analysis and experimental psychology. His research involved building software tools and protocols for generating large scale interactional data, and developing open-science methods for improving interaction research in psychology.
