Call for Papers - INTERPRET 2013


INTERPRET 2013 - Workshop on multImedia Techniques for augmEnted and virtual
Reality: PResence and intEraction in virtual environment 

In conjunction with SITIS 2013
2-5 December 2013
Terrsa Conference Center, Kyoto, Japan



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
Progress in human-computer interaction 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 field, improving the immersiveness so making
simulations more realistic and interactions more effective. 
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 this third edition of InTERPRET workshop is to investigate new
approaches for advanced human/computer interaction in virtual or augmented
reality with a particular focus on concrete applications. The workshop will
be of interest to researchers working with new technologies, psychologists,
designers and human/computer experts who investigate human-centered
technology with focus on video and audio signals. The workshop will bring
together researchers both from academia and industry on different
disciplines with a common objective: go beyond the frontiers of today
interactivity in Virtual Environments.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Augmented Reality: applications and impact on the user
* Presence in shared virtual environments
* Real bodies and avatars
* Cognitive processes and the sense of presence
* Neuropsychology of presence and emotional state
* Haptic and Sound in virtual and augmented environment
* Affective and socio-affective interfaces
* Emotional state with Augmented Reality experience: measurement techniques
* Multimedia Interaction
* Multimedia Signal Processing for Human-Computer Interaction
* Intelligent User Interfaces
* Audio-based interaction
* Virtual-augmented reality for Healthcare



Papers must be up to 8 pages and follow IEEE double columns publication
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers for
technical merit, originality, significance and relevance to workshop topics.

Accepted papers at the workshop will be published IEEE and referenced in
IEEE explore and major indexes (DBLP, Scopus, etc.) Extended version of
selected accepted papers will be considered for publication in major
journals. More details about the submission process can be found on the
conference website.
