Abstract: Communication between people is a critical process, vital for an individuals’ good functioning  in society. It is a subtle process involving multiple aspects of both speech and body language. In recent years significant advances have been made in understanding both the psychological mechanisms involved in various aspects of communication and in automating the measurement of diverse aspects of communication.  This will cover both of those aspects and their interaction.
