Welcome to the Presence Community website!

How do we create the experience we call reality?  How are rapidly evolving interaction technologies changing it? Presence is a field studying the science, technology and social impact of digitally mediated interaction. It consists of research strands studying how to produce “real”-feeling experiences and the impact of associated technologies on social dynamics.  Presence is intensely interdisciplinary, requiring collaboration in fields as diverse as Human and social cognition, human-machine interaction and machine cognition.

Notice: the follow up and extension to Peach you were waiting for is now active. It is called HC2, for Human Computer Confluence. Please visit http://hcsquared.eu.
