Computer Engineering Department of Bilkent University invites project
proposals for eNTERFACE’19, the 15th Summer Workshop on Multimodal
Interfaces, to be held in Ankara, Turkey, from July 8th – August 2nd, 2019.

Following the success of the previous eNTERFACE workshops held in Mons
(Belgium, 2005), Dubrovnik (Croatia, 2006), Istanbul (Turkey, 2007), Paris
(France, 2008), Genova (Italy, 2009), Amsterdam (Netherlands, 2010), Plzen
(Czech Republic, 2011), Metz (France, 2012), Lisbon (Portugal, 2013),
Bilbao (Spain, 2014), Mons (Belgium, 2015), Twente (Netherlands, 2016),
Porto (Portugal, 2017), and Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium, 2018), eNTERFACE’19
aims at continuing and enhancing the tradition of collaborative, localized
research and development work by gathering, in a single place, leading
researchers in multimodal interfaces and students to work on specific
projects for 4 complete weeks.

Gather a (partial) team and apply with a short project proposal on
multimodal interfaces. When the proposal is accepted, a call for
participants will be circulated, and people will apply to become a part of
your project. You can specify desired skills in this call. You will
evaluate the applicants and decide on the final team. The participants will
come to the workshop for one month. There are no registration fees, and we
have arranged cheap accommodation for the participants. Each participant is
responsible from his or her own travel and subsistence. At the end of the
workshop, project groups will prepare and present reports that will be
gathered in proceedings, and extended reports will be gathered in a journal
special issue (typically, Journal of Multimodal User Interfaces). You can
check for past editions, and find project reports,
open code and data of past projects.

The eNTERFACE workshop is a great opportunity to bring together researchers
working on an international project, for testing new ideas, for integrating
modules, for collecting new datasets, and for meeting new people. There
will be some invited lectures and many social activities during the

This year’s special topics will be deep learning for behavior analysis and
reinforcement learning. There will be seminars around those topics during
the workshop.

Although not exhaustive, the submitted projects can cover one or several of
the topics listed below:
- Art and Technology
- Affective Computing
- Assistive and Rehabilitation Technologies
- Assistive Technologies for Education and Social Inclusion
- Augmented Reality
- Conversational Embodied Agents
- Health Informatics
- Human Behavior Analysis
- Human Robot Interaction
- Interactive Playgrounds
- Innovative Musical Interfaces
- Interactive Systems for Artistic Applications
- Mixed Reality
- Multimodal Interaction, Signal Analysis and Synthesis
- Multimodal Spoken Dialog Systems
- Search in Multimedia and Multilingual Documents
- Serious Games
