University of West Bohemia, Faculty of Applied Sciences, Department of Cybernetics, invites project proposals for eNTERFACE’11, the 7th summer workshop on multimodal interfaces, which will be held in Plzeň, Czech Republic, from August 1st to August 26th, 2011. Following the success of the previous eNTERFACE workshops (www.enterface.net) held in Mons, Dubrovnik, Istanbul, Paris, Genova, and Amsterdam, eNTERFACE’11 aims at continuing and enhancing the tradition of collaborative, localized research and development work by gathering, in a single place, leading researchers in multimodal interfaces and students to work on specific projects for 4 complete weeks.
eNTERFACE’11 will encompass invited lectures and/or tutorials on several aspects of design of multimodal interfaces, given by invited senior researchers, and periodical presentations of the results achieved by each project group. The ultimate goal is to make this event a unique opportunity for students and experts all over the world to meet and effectively work together, so as to foster the development of tomorrow’s multimodal research community. Project submissions on all themes below are welcome. We particularly encourage interdisciplinary proposals covering several themes and proposals integrating the OpenInterface and/or the EyesWeb XMI platforms.
