Workshop on Multimedia Techniques for Augmented Reality: Presence and
Emotion in Virtual Environment (INTERPRET 2011)

within SITIS 2011 - November 28 - December 1, 2011  Dijon - France

Aims and scope
There is a strong evidence that future human-computer interfaces will enable
more natural and intuitive communication between people and all kinds of
devices equipped with sensors, thus more closely resembling human-human
communications. Progress in human computer interactions has introduced
innovative technologies that empower users to interact with computer system
in increasingly natural and intuitive ways. This progress has a great impact
in the virtual-augmented reality, improving the immersiveness making
simulations more realistic. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are
nowadays part of the daily life of people for entertainment, shopping,
travelling, as well as for professional.
The user is now at the center not only as a customer but also as an
information provider; therefore, the relation between the human being and
the technology becomes essential. People do not communicate with words only
but also with facial expression and gesture that express emotional states.
When two or more people get connected, understanding the emotions of each
other is important to carry out an effective communication. The sensation of
"being there" in a virtual situation assures a natural interaction with the
technology and improves its effectiveness.
The scope of the interpret workshop is to investigate new approaches for
detecting users' emotional states improving human/computer interaction. This
workshop aimed of researchers working with new technologies, psychologists,
designers and human/computer experts who investigate human-centered
technology. The workshop will bring together researchers both from academia
and industry on different disciplines with a common objective: go beyond the
frontiers of today Virtual Environments.
