Our team is part of an international community of experts interested in the cross-cultural study of children’s multimodal communication and its cognitive infrastructure, comparing (when possible) both typically developing children and children with communicative difficulties.

The focus of this network is put on cost-effective research methods that allow large-scale, diverse data collection and annotation. Such methods include Zoom-based studies, unmoderated online cognitive experiments, and automatic annotation tools borrowed from the fields of Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing.

The network allows the researchers involved to pool their data and methods towards building a quantitative, universal, and practical theory of multimodal conversational development.

Below is the geographic distribution of the current members. If you would like to join this collaborative effort, please write an email to: network@cocodev.fr
