Dear all,

please be informed of the following event and call for participation,
and kindly distribute the call among those who might be interested in
participation (particularly MSc and PhD students).

From July 18 - August 12 2016, we organize the following eNTERFACE project:

Embodied conversational interfaces for the elderly user

Do you want to get hands-on experience with the modelling of a virtual
avatar? Have you always wanted to build your own robot? Now is your
chance to do so, by joining eNTERFACE 2016’s project: `Embodied
Conversational Interfaces for Elderly Users'.

In this project, you will collaborate in a team on the design and
development of a bi-bodied conversational agent for elderly users, i.e.
an agent that has a robotic as well as a virtual body. The project will
result in a test set-up enabling experimenters to compare the effects of
a virtual body vs. a robotic body in human-agent interaction studies.
Both bodies should be likeable and acceptable by the target group, and
so the team will consult weekly with a representative sample of elderly
users. In addition to the bodies, the team will work on a control panel
to be used by a “Wizard of Oz”, i.e. a tele-operator that controls the
robot/avatar from a distance, thereby simulating the intelligence of the
agent.

More information about this project and eNTERFACE can be found on the
website:
