Summer 2011, estimated publication date

What is eNTERFACE?

The eNTERFACE workshops aim at establishing a tradition of collaborative, localized research and development work by gathering, in a single place, a team of leading professionals in multimodal man-machine interfaces together with students (both graduate and undergraduate), to work on a prespecified list of challenges, for 4 complete weeks. In this respect, it is an innovative and intensive collaboration scheme, designed to allow researchers to integrate their software tools, deploy demonstrators, collect novel databases, and work side by side with a great number of experts. It brings together 80 researchers for a whole month, subsequently it is the largest workshop on multimodal interfaces.

The workshop is held on a yearly basis, in July-August, and organized around several research projects dealing with multimodal human-machine interfaces design. It is thus radically different from traditional scientific workshops, in which only specialists meet for a few days to discuss state-of-the art problems, but do not really work together.

The eNTERFACE was initiated by the FP6 Network of Excellence SIMILAR. After the completion of SIMILAR, the workshop continued to attract wide interest under the aegis of the OpenInterface Foundation. It was organized by FacultÚ Polytechnique de Mons in 2005, University of Zagreb in 2006, Bogaziši University in 2007, CNRS-LIMSI in 2008, and University of Genova in 2009.

eNTERFACE'10 is organized by Intelligent Systems Lab Amsterdam (ISLA-ISIS), of University of Amsterdam.

Topics of Interest

The following themes will be studied and developed during the four-week long workshop:

Multimodal signal analysis and synthesis Signal-level and meaning-level data fusion
Intuitive interfaces and personalized systems in real and virtual environments Medical applications
User, context and semantics-aware self-learning and adapting systems Multimodal conversational systems
Innovative modalities and modalities conversion Usability
