Call for Participation

The eNTERFACE 2009 Workshop is being organized this summer in Genova, Italy, from July 13th to August 7th, 2009. The Workshop will be held at Casa Paganini – InfoMus Lab (www.casapaganini.org), DIST-University of Genova.

The eNTERFACE Workshops present an opportunity of collaborative research and software development by gathering, in a single place, a team of senior project leaders in multimodal interfaces, PhD students, and (undergraduate) students, to work on a pre-specified list of challenges, for the duration of four weeks. Participants are organized in teams, assigned to specific projects. eNTERFACE’09 will also encompass presentation sessions, including tutorial state-of-the-art surveys 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.

Outcome of synergy and success stories of past eNTERFACE Workshops held in Mons, Belgium (2005), Dubrovnik, Croatia (2006), Istanbul, Turkey (2007), and Paris, France (2008), can be seen at www.enterface.net.

Senior researchers, PhD, or undergraduate students interested in participating to the Workshop should send their application by emailing the Organizing Committee at enterface09@casapaganini.org on or before April 30, 2009. The application should contain:

Participants must procure their own travel and accommodation expenses. Information about the venue location and stay are provided on the eNTERFACE’09 website (www.infomus.org/enterface09).
