We proposed a meeting with a rather small number of invited speakers to provide the best opportunity for discussion. Each participant is chosen from computer animation, psychology and phonetics and have expressed great interest in and concern for the questions addressed by this workshop in their research and writing. The workshop was held on the 11th and 12th of November 1993 (Thursday and Friday). On the first day of the Workshop, each participant (or group), gave a 15 minute presentation, with 10 minutes for subsequent discussion. The second day was devoted entirely to discussion of the questions raised above and other relevant issues that the group had wished to pursue.
Workshop participants were asked to submit a 2-3 page position paper, which was distributed to the other participants prior to the Workshop.
