Call for participation to the 8th International Workshop on Multimodal 
Interfaces; July 2nd - July 27th, 2012; Supélec (Metz, France)

After the previous workshops which had an impressive success record and 
had proven the viability and usefulness of this original workshop, the 
8th edition will take place in Supélec (Metz, France). eNTERFACE 
workshops aim 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.

Senior researchers, PhD, MS, or undergraduate students are now invited 
to submit an application for participation at eNTERFACE'12. All those 
interested in participating at the workshop should send their 
application by emailing the organizing committee at 
[log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>. The content of

( . The deadline is fixed at the 30th 
of April. Applicants can choose up to three projects ordered by 
preference (see the website for the description of the projects and 
available positions in each of them). Selection of the applicants will 
be carried out by the project leaders.
