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

Registration still open until the 15 of May

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  

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
