The 8th International Workshop on Multimodal Interface ; July 2nd - July,
27th 2012; Supélec (Metz, France)

After the previous workshops, held in Mons (Belgium), Dubrovnik (Croatia),
Istanbul (Turkey), Paris (France), Genova (Switzerland), Amsterdam (The
Netherlands) and Plzen (Czech Republic) which had an impressive success
record and had proven the viability and usefulness of this original
workshop, the 8th will take place in Supélec (Metz, France). eNTERFACE
workshops aims at establishing a tradition of collaborative, localized
research and development work by gathering, in a single place, a team of
senior project leaders in multimodal interfaces,  researchers, and
(undergraduate) students, to work on a pre-specified list of challenges,
for 4 weeks. Participants are organized in teams, attached to specific
projects, working on free software. Each week will typically consist of
working sessions by the teams on their respective projects plus a tutorial
given by an invited senior researcher and a presentation of the results
achieved by each project group. The last week will be devoted to writing an
article on the results obtained by the teams plus a big session where all
the groups will present their achievements.

This year, participants will be provided with an especially great technical
infrastructure, the SmartRoom. In addition to basic network infrastructure
and internet access, robots (Nao, Parrot drone, Koala, Rovio and Bioloid),
multimedia devices (2d and 3d cameras, Kinect, array of microphones and
even an holophonic room) and sensors (brain computer interfaces,
eyetrackers and some biomedical sensors) will be available for the
projects. For more details, see the website.

The eNTERFACE'12 committee now invites researchers to submit project
proposals that will be evaluated by the scientific committee. All the
informations asked to submit a project are available on the website of the
workshop (http://enterface12.metz.supelec.fr). The proposals should contain
a full description of the project's objectives, required
hardwares/softwares and relevant literatures. When submitting a project
proposal, a list of potential candidates can be proposed by the authors.
Although not exhaustive, the submitted projects can cover one or several of
the topics listed below. A special focus of this year is on human-robot and
human-environment interaction.

Topics :

- Embodied agents

- Human-robot and human-environments interactions in smart environments

- Multimodal signal analysis and synthesis

- Signal-level and meaning-level data fusion

- Multimodal conversational systems

- Intuitive interfaces and personalized systems in real and virtual

- User, context and semantics aware self-learning and adapting systems

- Innovative modalities and modalities conversion

- Applications of Multimodal Interfaces
