"ISGS-HK is an exciting development for the field of gesture studies. It will be an important forum, in which the growing body of gesture researchers in East Asia can exchange ideas with each other, and get connected to the global community of researchers."

Gesture in learning and memory, behavioural and neural processing (ERP) 
(ISGS President & HK LIAiSON)
"One of the most intriguing aspects of gesture is that it is universal across cultures, but also significantly shaped by culture. Given the linguistic and cultural diversity of Hong Kong and the surrounding region, ISGS - HK is an important and stimulating hub for gesture research."
