The 8th International Workshop on Multimodal Interface ; July 2nd -  
July, 27th 2012; Supélec (Metz, France)

After the previous workshops, held in Mons (Belgium), Dubrovnik  
(Croatia), Istanbul (Turkey), Paris (France), Genova (Switzerland),  
Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and Plzen (Czech Republic) which had an  
impressive success record and had proven the viability and usefulness  
of this original workshop, the 8th will take place in Supélec (Metz,  
France). eNTERFACE workshops aims 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.

The eNTERFACE'12 committee now invites researchers to submit project  
proposals that will be evaluated by the scientific committee. All the  
informations asked to submit a project are available on the website of  
the workshop ( The proposals  
should contain a full description of the project's objectives,  
required hardwares/softwares and relevant literatures. When submitting  
a project proposal, a list of potential candidates can be proposed by  
the authors. Although not exhaustive, the submitted projects can cover  
one or several of the topics listed below. A special focus of this  
year is on human-robot and human-environment interaction.

Topics :

- Embodied agents
- Human-robot and human-environments interactions in smart environments
- Multimodal signal analysis and synthesis
- Signal-level and meaning-level data fusion
- Multimodal conversational systems
- Intuitive interfaces and personalized systems in real and virtual  
- User, context and semantics aware self-learning and adapting systems
- Innovative modalities and modalities conversion
- Applications of Multimodal Interfaces
