    A Discussion on Augmenting and Executing SharedPlans for Multimodal Communication,
    The adoption of SharedPlans as a basis for multimodal dialogues is discussed. An extension to the modal of plan augmentation for discourse is proposed so that it applies for multimodal interaction. The proposed process exploits SharedPlans and Adjacency Pairs in conjuction to account for global and local collaboration. Finally, multmedia coordination is taken into account. An example is followed throghout the paper to make the consequences of the proposal more concrete,

    Viewpoint Dependence in Face Recognition,
    This paper analyzes the problem of face recognition as a cognitive process. Specifically, it studies the influence of the angle from which the face to recognize is observed. Following the examination of studies that considered this problem in the past, two psychophysical experiments are presented that seek to further clarify the problem. It is shown that the subject gives different responses according to target viewpoint, with the surest and most rapid recognition coming from observation of the right-hand side of the face.,
