Together with the Creative Computing (CC) programme, LCC participates in the Tilburg center for Cognition and Communication (TiCC). Researchers in both programmes collaborate on various topics related to language and communication, including developing and evaluating automatic analyses of language and automatic techniques for analysing non-verbal behavior, game design and evaluation, and user interface design.
Within the broader School of Humanities, LCC researchers collaborate with researchers in the Language and Globalization programme, especially in the area of Cognitive Linguistics. There are also research contacts with Philosophy, most notably concerning formal approaches to language, as well as experimental pragmatics and semantics.
Within Tilburg University, there are collaborations with various research groups in the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioural Sciences, in particular with the Department of Developmental, Clinical and Crosscultural Psychology (e.g., non-verbal cues for depression and emotion, cross-cultural comparisons of non-verbal behavior), the Department of Medical Psychology and Neuropsychology (e.g., audio-visual prosody, non-verbal behavior and autism), and the Department of Social Psychology (e.g., language and psychology, consistency and expectancy).
Within the Netherlands, there are good contacts and collaborations with most other universities, especially those participating in one of the two graduate schools that LCC also participates in (LOT and SIKS). There is a particularly strong collaboration with the Radboud University Nijmegen, partly because of the joint Research Master on Language and Communication. In addition, there are close and ongoing collaborations with the Radboud University Nijmegen and Free University Amsterdam on metaphor and communication, with Eindhoven University of Technology on human-computer interaction and with Twente University on professional comunication and language technology. There are excellent international collaborations with, for example, University of Malta, University of Aberdeen, University of Dundee and Norwegian University of Science and Technology on language production, with Purdue University and College of William & Mary (both USA), as well as Warsaw School of Social Psychology (Poland) on social exclusion, with Columbia University and University of Witwatersrand on non-verbal behavior, and with various other South-African Universities on Aids prevention communication.
