Nonverbal synchrony is an important and natural element in human-human interaction. It can also play various roles in human-computer interaction. In particular this is the case in the interaction between humans and the virtual humans that inhabit our cyber worlds. Virtual humans need to adapt their behavior to the behavior of their human interaction partners in order to maintain a natural and continuous interaction synchronization. This paper surveys approaches to modeling synchronization and applications where this modeling is important. Apart from presenting this framework, we also present a quantitative method for measuring the level of nonverbal synchrony in an interaction and observations on future research that allows embedding such methods in models of interaction behavior of virtual humans.
