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

Reminder : Project submission deadline January 28th, 2012

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 editionwill 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 ismade this year 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
